For the first round of the Algerian football selection camp, a friendly match against the Guinean team is scheduled for this evening.
Back on Algerian soil, the Algerian national team will welcome its opponent on the lawn of the Olympic stadium in Oran.
Thus, the Algerian coach, Djamel Belmadi, has concocted a largely redesigned 11 starter to apply the automatisms prepared during the first phase of the September internship.
The 11 type of Belmadi against Guinea
For this first match of the international window, the goalkeeper, Mustapha Zeghba, will be the goalkeeper for the Greens.
The Algerian defense will consist of Ramy Bensebaini, Abdelkader Bedrane, Mohamed Tougai and Hocine Benayada.
The interplay of the Algerian team will be hosted by Nabil Bentaleb, Ismail Bennacer and Sofiane Bendebka.
In line of attack of the Algerian team, Belmadi has aligned Andy Delort alongside Bilal Brahimi and Adem Ounas.
Note that Ramy Bensebaini will be the captain of the Algerian team for this friendly match against the Guinean team.
History of the meetings of the Algerian team against Guinea
If the last meeting against the Guinea team was a total success for the teammates of Riyad Mahrez, the matches of the Algerian selection against Guinea were not always affordable for the Fennecs.
Thus, during 9 official matches played against Guinea, Algeria could only win 3 victories. With 4 games won over official confrontations, the Guinean team has the upper hand over Algeria. The latter scored 12 goals and conceded 15 against the opponent on 23 September.
We can note the large victory of the Guineans in 1972 with the score of 5-1 for the account of the qualifiers for the 1974 World Cup. In friendly, Algeria and Guinea have faced each other 6 times. Each of the selections won 2 wins and the draw was recorded in two matches.
For tonight’s game, Belmadi’s team will try to take advantage of the Guineans. The kick-off of the meeting will be given at 8 p.m.
