Mustapha Madjer took charge of the squad in October last year when the team had already lost all hopes of making it to the World Cup in Russia. Even though he made a decent start with a 1-1 draw against Nigeria and back-to-back wins in friendlies against Central African Republic and Tanzania, Madjer suffered consecutive defeats coming into this tie with Cape Verde Islands. Algeria once again revealed weaknesses by falling to both Iran in March and Saudi Arabia in May.

Algeria vs Cape Verde Head-to-head

  • Algeria won two and drew two of four head to head encounters with Cape Verde Islands.

  • Cape Verde failed to find the back of the net in three of four matches against Algeria.

Algeria vs Cape Verde Predictions

The Blue Sharks generally enjoyed a strong campaign in the African World Cup Qualifications under Lucio Antunes. The team reached the final stage of the competition inning two of six games there coming third at the end of the group which featured the likes of Senegal, South Africa and Burkina Faso.

However, Cape Verde ended the campaign in a rather dismal fashion losing 0-2 to Senegal and 4-0 to Burkina Faso in the final quarter of the last year. The visitors are thus hoping to rebound from such losses and raise the spirits with the result against high-profile continental opposition.

The hosts should have the likes of Islam Slimani and Riyad Mahrez available to make the starting lineup which is why we see the value in backing them to clinch the victory at the odds of 1.50. You can alternatively back the Under 2.5 goals FT at 1.53.

Algeria vs Cape Verde Betting Tips

  • Algeria to win @ 1.50
