MC Alger will welcome USM Bel Abbès to Stade du 5 Juillet 1962 for a matchday 20 fixture in Algeria Ligue 1. The last meeting on 8th December 2020 ended in a MC Alger 2-1 win. Both sides have met ten times in the most recent seasons. MC Alger has won 3 matches, and USM Bel Abbès triumphed in 6. Recent outings average 2.90 goals, while both teams score 80% of the time.
MC Alger's last game in the Algeria Ligue 1 against NC Magra at home ended in a 5-1 win. Although MCA played less with the ball than their opponent, it was enough to get the result they were hoping for. MC Alger outplayed NC Magra in the second half and scored in the 45+1, 59th, 67th, 69th and 78th minute.
USM Bel Abbès's recent game against JS Kabylie ended in a home 0-5 loss. USM Bel Abbès's strikers were frustrated by the lack of good chances.
Since the start of the season, Le Doyen is more dominant at home. They have six wins out of 12 games on home soil. Although MC Alger is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 33% home clean sheets.
USM Bel Abbès has picked up 6 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. USM Bel Abbès wins 0.50 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. USM Bel Abbès kept a clean sheet in just 7% of their visits.
It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Mouloudia is currently unbeaten at home in six games. Since the start of the season, they have lost at home on just one occasion.
USM Bel Abbès failed to win in ten consecutive away games. It will be a big surprise to turn up on Tuesday and win against Mouloudia.
I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. MC Alger wins on average 1.92 points per home game, compared to 0.50 points per away game for USM Bel Abbès. My prediction is MC Alger to win.
Lately, there are not that many high-scoring games for both sides. I am confident that the tendency will keep going and at least one team will keep a clean sheet. A bet that both sides will score wins in an average of 59% of MC Alger's home and USM Bel Abbès's away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: No.
