Algeria vs Equatorial Guinea: AFCON 2022 – LIVE!


lgeria vs Equatorial Guinea LIVE!

After a frustrating draw with Sierra Leone in their opening game, Algeria will be looking to spark their Africa Cup of Nations campaign into life against Equatorial Guinea.

Reigning AFCON champions Algeria are among the favourites to defend their crowd in Cameroon, but Riyad Mahrez and his team were held to a 0-0 draw by Sierra Leone first up.

That result did see Algeria extend their unbeaten streak to 35 games, which is within two games of the world record held by Italy.

They will be in search of three points this time around but they could be in for another tricky assignment at the Japoma Stadium in Douala.

Equatorial Guinea were beaten 1-0 by Ivory Coast in their opening game but they showed enough to suggest Algeria could be in for another tricky assignment.

With kick-off at 7pm BST, follow all the action with Malik Ouzia…

Standard Sport prediction

With a heavyweight clash against Ivory Coast to come in their final group game, Algeria can ill-afford any further slip ups and having had a game to warm into the tournament, will be expecting a miuch-improved display.


Algeria team news

Djamel Belmadi could make several changes to his side after their disappointing display against Sierra Leone.

AC Milan midfielder Ismael Bennacer could return after missing the opener through suspension, while West Ham’s Said Benrahma is another option, though he missed an excellent chance after coming off the bench.
