Defending champions Algeria kicked off their defense of the AFCON title in less than impressive fashion with a 0-0 stalemate against underdogs Sierra Leone.

Here at Alley Sport, we bring you the Algeria predicted lineup vs Equatorial Guinea: Preview, Prediction and Livestream details from this group stage clash at the Africa Cup of Nations 2022.

Algeria vs Equatorial Guinea Preview and Livestream

Riyad Mahrez’s Algeria were expected to start their campaign with a flyer, especially being afforded relatively easy opponents in the form of Sierra Leone, one of the tournament’s rank outsiders. However, the Greens failed to capitalise on any of the chances they created, as only Yacine Brahimi had any sort of a decent game compared to the rest of his teammates. True, a draw is not the worst result in the world, but it does give Ivory Coast the early initiative in the group with their win over Equatorial Guinea. Algeria need severe improvement in their performances moving forward if they are to defend their crown in Cameroon this year.

Equatorial Guinea, on the other hand, started their campaign in a relatively tough group on a less than impressive note as well. Max Gradel fired Ivory Coast into an early lead which the Guineans never looked like recovering from. The Nzalang Nacional need to score big by beating Algeria to have any shot at progress past the group stage.

Algeria vs Equatorial Guinea Prediction

Algeria were looking like a well-oiled, rugged unit under their experienced manager Djamel Belmandi, but if their match against Sierra Leone is anything to go by, the Greens will find it hard to progress. Equatorial Guinea too were unable to show any sort of flair in their drab defeat to Ivory Coast. As such, with both teams needing a win and Algeria still to face the group leaders, we fancy Riyad Mahrez’s team to snatch a 2-0 win thanks solely to their squad depth on paper.
