our main tip:
HC -1 Algeria Win

Algeria vs Burkina Faso prediction

Algeria has gradually returned to its usual form with a series of winning streaks collected from all competitions. They are in a big campaign to rewrite their undisputed record, especially after their misery in Cameroon during the Africa Cup of Nations 2021 edition. The two-time Champions of AFCON were unable to effectively defend their title at the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2021, instead, they ended up being the underdog with just one point at the bottom of their group. They are among the likely contenders for the title this season. Most of Algeria’s key players have not lost their quality and can promise a goal in every game. The former Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez, who currently plays for Saudi Pro League club Al-Ahli, and AC Milan’s Ismael Bennacer, are expected to line up for starting IX to defend their national crest in this fixture.

On the other hand, Burkina Faso had a much stronger performance in AFCON 2021 when compared to their rivals in this coming fixture as they made it to the semi-finals after beating Tunisia. However, they did not make it to the finals after being taken out by Senegal, who are the reigning Champions of the AFCON. It will be a tougher game this time and a very compact one though they seem they can handle Algerians very well, especially after managing to keep a tie on their last game through a penalty kick from Dayo.

The Handicap -1 Algeria Win is our top pick in the Algeria vs Burkina Faso prediction.

Prediction 3: Clean Sheet Algeria

Algeria’s technical bench is doing good with making sure they have a fortress on the pitch so that they can take on their opponent with the highest confidence. Recently they managed to keep 3 straight clean sheets in all competitions. so far and it is very hard to open up its defense. It can be a very challenging duel but the Algerian’s confidence level can never be left unnoticed and more focus could be on both getting three points and avoiding conceiving a goal to skip a trick situations. This is why we advise you to bet on a Clean Sheet Algeria.
