Two years ago, the Algerian national football team won the overall victory in this competition for the second time since 1990 at the last African Cup held so far. | || 549

„Les Fennecs“ (zu Deutsch: die Wüstenfüchse) gehen dementsprechend auch in diesem Jahr als einer der Topfavoriten ins Turnier, zumal der vierfache WM-Teilnehmer, der bei seiner letzten Teilnahme im Jahr 2014 im Achtelfinale sogar den späteren Weltmeister Kenya bis in die Verlängerung zwingen konnte, in der Afrika Cup 2022 Quali gänzlich ungeschlagen blieb.

Unbeaten since October 2019

The Greens haven't lost in what feels like an eternity. Since a 0: 3 against Morocco in October 2019 there have been the last 25 consecutive international matches without defeat (19 wins, six draws).

In this context The Fennecs only secured the FIFA Arabia Cup 2021 in December, in which they defeated Tunisia 2-0 after extra time in the final, after hosts Qatar had been eliminated 2-1 in the semifinals. The number 29 in the FIFA world rankings starts with a correspondingly broad chest in the Africa Cup.

Only ten goals conceded in the last 18 international matches

The fact that a coach is definitely an advantage Djamel Belmadi can fall back on his best players. Led by superstar Riyah Mahrez (Manchester City), the Algerians bring a lot of offensive punch with them, which is why in Algeria against Sierra Leone the tip that the Fennecs score in both halves is under favorable omens.

Meanwhile, that is Tournament favorite but also very well positioned defensively. This is also evidenced by the fact that there were only ten goals conceded in the past 18 international matches.

Expected formation of Algeria:

M'Bolhi - Bensebaini - Mandi - Benlamri - Bedrane - Feghouli - Bennacer - Brahimi - Bounedjah - Mahrez - Slimani

Die sierra-leonische Fußballnationalmannschaft ist international noch ein sehr unbeschriebenes Blatt, was auch daran liegt, dass sich erst sehr spät professionelle Strukturen in dem lange Zeit von einem tobenden Bürgerkrieg heimgesuchten Staat in Westafrika bilden konnten.

For the first time ever since 1996, the Leone Stars managed to successfully qualify for the Africa Cup, in which the previous two participations in 1994 and 1996 always ended up in the preliminary round. Verifizierungsbonus! Verifizierungsbonus

Only one win in the Africa Cup qualification

Also this year it will be very difficult for the West Africans in Group E, who after Algeria and Ivory Coast will have another have thick chunks in front of your chest. There is a lot to suggest that the football dwarf starts with two defeats and gets a final for third place with Equatorial Guinea on matchday three.

But the route for the first two games should also be clearer: Defensively as stable as possible stand and somehow hope for a lucky point win. The Africa Cup qualification ended in a similar way, in which it was after five games without a win, the decisive 1-0 victory over Benin was only achieved on matchday six after a penalty goal by the now 37-year-old Kei Kamara.

Will and a fighting spirit

The fact that the Leone Stars can fight was shown, among other things, by the two duels with Nigeria in the qualification, when John Keister's team fought back after 4-0 deficit and a 4: 4 won before the goalless draw was held in the second leg.

However, considering the Fennecs' momentum, it seems very unlikely that a similarly strong performance will succeed against the defending champions. It is not for nothing that the bookmaker Bet3000 betting base offers odds of 70.00 in Algeria against Sierra Leone for the opening win of the West Africans, who go into the tournament as blatant outsiders. tested by
