Algeria vs Nigeria betting tips & prediction
We bring you all the betting tips and predictions as the Super Eagles of Nigeria take on the Desert Warriors of Algeria in an international friendly game at the Oran Olympic Stadium.
Nigeria and Algeria will face each other for the first time since 2020. The last meeting was also an international friendly between both countries, as Algeria got a slim 1-0 victory at the Moshood Abiola Stadium in Abuja.
The Super Eagles’ last victory against the Desert Warriors came in 2016 during qualification for the 2018 World Cup. Both teams have met three times since that victory, and the North Africans have been victorious in all three cases (one was a 3-0 walkover).
Djamel Belmadi will be confident going into this one, with his team currently on a run of nine straight wins in international friendlies. Meanwhile, José Peseiro is yet to lead the Super Eagles of Nigeria to a win in an international friendly, losing to Ecuador and Mexico in the two he has taken charge of.
