Algeria vs Uganda
African Cup of Nations Qualification
Date: Saturday, 4 June 2022
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Olympic Stadium.
Algeria is set to host to the visiting Uganda in a match of Round 1 in Group F at Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, this Saturday at Olympic Stadium in Oran.
Algeria has been one of the strong contender from North Africa as they have won the Africa Cup of Nations twice, once in 1990 and when they hosted the tournament at Egypt in 2019. However, the Greens come into this on the back of a terrible start to 2022.
Djamel Belmadi’s side had been on a record-breaking unbeaten run after winning the 2021 FIFA Arab Cup and they went into the 2022 AFCON as reigning champions and favorites. However, The Desert Warriors were knocked out in the group stages without winning before being beaten in the 124th minute in extra time against Cameroon to lose their CAF 2022 FIFA World Cup playoff.
On the other side, Uganda’s best finish was at the Africa Cup of Nations where they came second in 1978. They come into this on the back of an entertaining 4-2 defeat away to Uzbekistan in their most recent outing during the March International break.
The visitors have won one of their last 4 matches and that win came against Tajikistan. They played 7 friendly fixtures coming here and they won and lost 3 games each indicating that they are an inconsistent side.
Algeria vs Uganda Head-to-head (h2h)
- They met only twice of which both sides share a win each.
- Last time they crossed paths was in 2011 where Uganda won by 2-0.
Algeria vs Uganda Prediction
Algeria remain undefeated in their last 14 home Nations Cup qualifier games in a row. Recently, their form hasn’t been good, as the team has won only 1 of their last 6 matches across various competitions. The Greens urgently need to regain their form if they have to challenge for the AFCON in 2023.
Meanwhile, a goal-less streak consisting of 3 away matches has marked the Nations Cup qualifier campaign of Uganda. They now come here on the back of 3 straight away game defeats in a row where they have conceded 8 goals in total.
We envisage that Algeria, especially with home advantage, should expect to get back on track with a fairly comfortable victory in this one.
