In search of an eighth consecutive victory on home turf, Algeria welcome Liberia to the Complexe Olympic Oran on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, the visitors are looking to record back-to-back wins for the first time since 2019 following a narrow win last time out.


Match preview

Algeria got the better of Tunisia when the North African giants renewed their rivalry at the Stade Olympique de Rades on Friday.

Baghdad Bounedjah and Riyad Mahrez were on target for Djamel Belmadi's men as they recorded a fourth triumph on the trot.

In that time, the Desert Foxes have been impressive at both ends of the pitch, scoring 12 goals while conceding just one.

Wednesday's hosts now prepare to take on a Liberia side who they last faced a little under 13 years ago in a World Cup qualifier.

The AFCON holders are unbeaten in five previous meetings between the sides, winning on three occasions and drawing twice.

Liberia were victorious for the second time in three outings courtesy of a 1-0 victory over Libya at the Stade Chedly Zouiten on Monday.

Oscar Dorley scored the only goal of the game, handing Peter Butler's men a much-needed win off the back of a defeat to Mauritiana.

The Lone Stars are currently ranked as the 151st-best male national team in the world, a whooping 118 places below their next opponents.

Wednesday's visitors have kept clean sheets in two of their last three matches and will need that level of defensive solidity when they go up against a team of their hosts' calibre.

Team News

Baghdad Bounedjah and Riyad Mahrez continue to make up ground on those ahead of them in the hosts' all-time scoring chart.

Adlene Guedioura is suspended for the game after he was given his marching orders for two bookable offences last time out.

Liberia's Sampson Dweh also received a straight red card against Libya, and he is expected to play no part in Wednesday's clash.

In the aforementioned match, Oscar Dorley opened his account for the national team with a game-winning spot kick on the cusp of half time.

Algeria possible starting lineup:
M'Bolhi; Bensebaini, Touba, Mandi, Atal; Boulaya, Belkebla, Feghouli; Mahrez, Slimani, Belaili

Liberia possible starting lineup:
Williams; Kouyateh, Maccornel, Beniah, Saygbe; Sando, Vaikainah, Doe, Blapoh; Ledlum, C. Jackson


We say: Algeria 3-1 Liberia

Algeria have been near-perfect of late, especially on home turf, and we are tipping them to get the job done against a Liberia side who have the potential to push them all the way.
