Algeria vs Colombia Prediction
Keeping aside the fact that both teams are playing in different tournaments, Algeria has shown better composure in their schedule rather than Colombia. Trailing with three draws recently, the Coffee Growers have to break that streak to retain their form. El Khadra has made sure that they have not lost any game in the last ten encounters.
The guest has lost one game in the last ten appearances in the schedule. Their four winless games in the recent fixtures have also let down the traveling side. Also, their last two matches were tied in a goalless draw against Chile and Venezuela.
The winners of the African Cup of Nations have not lost a game in the last 16 fixtures in their schedule. Also, they too had to suffer a double draw in their recent matches in major tournaments. Along with that, the host is unbeaten at home in the past eleven fixtures. The hosting side has even secured six clean sheets in the last ten home ties.
Meanwhile, the visiting contingent has lost two of the last 15 away ties along with 3 draws. Also, they are unbeaten in the last three trips on the road. Moreover, they have managed to record 8 clean sheets in the past 15 ties away from home.
Both the teams had their previous matches suffer a draw in the end. The host had their prior home tie drawn with D.R.Congo. Whilst, the opponents had their last visit to Brazil ending in a 2-2 draw in the end. As far as the confidence and morale are concerned, the host has an upper hand as they hold the home ground advantage.
Algeria did remarkably well to win the Africa Cup of Nations earlier this year. The Desert Foxes have been impressive at the back of late. Also, they are likely to rely on their rock-solid defense against Colombia. Besides that, Los Cafeteros are without Radamel Falcao and James Rodriguez which will further pull them back on their mission.
As such, the match will be a tight fight with the host as the favorites to win the bout.
