Our prediction for this Africa Cup of Nations 2021 match:
Algeria have been impressive in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, with the team rolling over Zambia 5-0 in their opener, while beating Botswana 1-0 thanks to Belaili’s goal. The Desert Warriors aim to keep their 100% record in Group H intact, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Zimbabwe. As always, a man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Man City ace Riyad Mahrez, who is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
The likes of Youcef Atal and Djmael Benlamri have been recalled, while Nimes’ summer signing Karim Aribi has received his first call-up. The visitors are eager to retain their spot in top two, but despite their fine displays in Group H, home win should be considered as Algeria are one of the teams to beat in Africa.
