Sports Mole previews Tuesday's World Cup Qualifying - Africa clash between Algeria and Burkina Faso, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

With a place in the next round of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers at stake, Algeria and Burkina Faso face off at the Stade Mustapha Tucker on Tuesday.

Ahead of the contest in Blida, the hosts currently lead their visitors by two points and will progress into the next round should they avoid defeat.


Match preview

Algeria secured a second consecutive victory on the road courtesy of a 4-0 triumph over Djibouti at the Cairo International Stadium on Friday.

Youcef Belaili, Said Benrahma, Sofiane Feghouli and Islam Slimani were all on the scoresheet as Djamel Belmadi's men romped to all three points.

Consequently, the Desert Foxes remain top of Group A having dropped only two points in their last five outings.

The north Africans have been solid at both ends of the field in that time, finding the back of the net 23 times while letting in just two.

Tuesday's hosts, who have won every home game since 2019, now set out to seal their place as group winners in front of their fans.

Burkina Faso were held to a 1-1 stalemate by Niger on Friday when the teams locked horns at Stade de Marrakech.

Kamou Malo's men trailed heading into the interval courtesy of Youssef Oumarou's penalty before drawing level 10 minutes into the second period thanks to Issoufou Dayo's spot kick.

With little time to dwell on a disappointing result, the Burkinababe now prepare for a crunch clash where nothing but a victory would suffice.

Tuesday's visitors, who are the only side to have denied their hosts all three points in the last eight months following September's 1-1 draw, will need to go one better this time to keep their World Cup dream alive.

Team News

Islam Slimani has scored six goals in his last two home appearances for Algeria and the 33-year-old will aim to add to his tally of 38 international strikes.

The Lyon man, who was only a half-time substitute last time out, is expected to get the nod ahead of Baghdad Bounedjah this time.

Burkina Faso's Issoufou Dayo is on a two-game scoring streak heading into this one and will be looking to come up clutch for his side.

Having netted in each of his last two away outings for the visitors, Mohamed Konate is one to keep an eye on.

Algeria possible starting lineup:
Oukidja; Mandi, Bedrane, Bensebaini, Halaimia; Bennacer, Belailli, Feghouli; Mahrez, Slimani, Benrahma

Burkina Faso possible starting lineup:
Ouedraogo; Kabore, Yago, Dayo, Tapsoba; Dabo, Guira, Sangare, Bande, Bayala; Konate


We say: Algeria 2-1 Burkina Faso

Both teams are in the last chance saloon heading into this one, so we expect a keenly-contested affair. Algeria will back themselves to get the job done on home turf, and we are backing them to emerge victorious come the full-time whistle.
