-----------------------------------

Niger and Algeria will meet on Tuesday in World Cup 2022 Qualifying action. El Khadra earned a dominant 6-1 victory in the previous clash and face a quick turnaround as they travel to Niger for the reverse fixture with the hopes of continuing their strong start to the qualifying campaign.

Niger began their World Cup Qualifying campaign in September with a home clash against Burkina Faso, and they were handed a disappointing 2-0 defeat before putting their first points on the board in the second outing. Jean-Michel Cavalli's men travelled to take on Djibouti and, after going behind in the first half, they turned the game on its head as a Victorien Adebayor brace and goals from Mohamed Wonkoye and Amadou Sabo fired them to an eventual 4-2 victory.The Menas were unable to build on that last time out though, as they were handed a 6-1 thrashing in Algeria on Friday, leaving them on three points from three games. With only one team from each group guaranteed a place in next year's tournament, Niger are left in a difficult situation in their bid to reach a first World Cup, and they will see a victory on Tuesday as vital if they are to stand a chance of overcoming the odds. That will be no easy task though, as the visitors will look to repeat Friday's performance with another dominant win.

Algeria got off to an eye-catching start in the qualifying group, as Islam Slimani netted four goals alongside finishes from Ramy Bensebaini, Baghdad Bounedjah, Riyad Mahrez and Ramiz Zerrouki in an 8-0 thrashing of Djibouti on home turf. They were then held to a draw by Burkina Faso, before bouncing back to winning ways in style last time out against Niger. While Daniel Sosah pulled a goal back for the visitors after a Mahrez finish and a Youssouf Oumarou own goal, El Khadra quickly stormed out of sight, as Mahrez found the net for a second time before Zakariya Souleymane scored an own goal and Slimani netted a late brace to seal an eye-catching 6-1 win.Currently leading Burkina Faso on goal difference at the top of the group, Djamel Belmadi's side will be keen to extend their strong run with a victory to maintain their position at the summit, after missing out on the 2018 World Cup.

 

Betting Verdict:

Following the rampant Algeria victory last time out, we do not see the turn of home advantage making a major difference on Tuesday and expect the visitors to come away with another dominant result. The Desert Foxes boast far more quality than their opponents, and they should continue their march towards next year's World Cup with relative ease.
