Algeria will be looking to follow Egypt’s roadmap as they look to become only the second team to ever defend the AFCON title they won in 2019.
Djamel Belmadi’s men made light work Ghana in their last preparation match for the tournament as they eased their way to a 3-0 win on Wednesday.
They are quite rightly considered as one of the favourites to clinch the title once again and will come out here to solidify their title credentials.
Sierra Leone had a less than stellar qualification campaign but their seven points from 6 qualifying matches was good enough to place them second in a tough Group L behind group winners Nigeria. . Their qualification was so tight it came down to a goal difference over Benin.
This is only their third appearance at the competition and the first since 1996. Despite this achievement, they have been in the news for all the wrong reasons in the last couple of weeks with reports indicating that their coach Jon Keister received death threats ahead of naming his squad for the tournament.
Having now settled on his battalion for this fight, John will be looking to inspire them to upset the odds, with many pundits overlooking them in this Group E that also has West African titans Ivory Coast.

ALGERIA VS SIERRA LEONE PREDICTIONS
Algeria are a force to reckon with. Not only are they the defending champions, but they are also in an incredible vein of form at the moment. They are yet to lose any of their last 27 straight matches across all competitions (21W, 6D) and have kept 14 clean sheets in this stretch. We fancy the Desert Foxes to kick off their quest for a back-to-back title with a comfortable and comprehensive win. We are therefore backing them to come out all guns blazing and win the opening half @ 1.40 with Cyberbet Welcome Bonus.
Man City forward Riyad Mahrez was instrumental in their last championship run and pretty much remains a key cog in their outstanding offensive output. He has scored in three of his last four appearances for the team. Bet9ja Bonus have him priced @ 2.00 to score anytime and we feel there is value in going with this as our final tip here.
