Tip Algeria - Equatorial Guinea
Prediction published on January 13, 2022 at 6:18 PM - Modified on January 13, 2022 at 7:18 PM
The AFCON defending champions Algeria have work to do after being shut out by Sierra Leone in the opening game. In the second game, they will be up against Equatorial Guinea, who are the only side without a point in Group E. Algeria have a point, having drawn 0-0 with a resolute Sierra Leone side, in their 26th straight unbeaten outing in all competitions. They have three wins in their last five matches and go to this game with three straight clean sheets. They will surely go to this game guns blazing as they look to put their title defence in good order. Algeria have scored two or more goals in eight of the last 10 matches and at AFCON finals, they are unbeaten in the last nine matches, winning six. Algeria have failed to score in just one of their last 13 AFCON matches.
Equatorial Guinea are coming from a 1-0 loss to Ivory Coast in their opening game in this group. Against Algeria it won’t get any easier and with a low scoring rate, Equatorial Guinea will be outright underdogs here. Equatorial Guinea haven’t scored more than a goal in their last four matches and have achieved that in just one of their last 10 games. They go into this one with two clean sheets only in the last five matches and as a result of their low returns in attack their last six matches have returned under 2.5 goals. In their last three matches at AFCON, they’ve failed to score and have just two clean sheets in the last five AFCON matches.
