Olympique Médéa will welcome USM Alger to Stade Imam Lyes for a matchday 23 fixture in Algeria Ligue 1. The last meeting on 19th December 2020 ended in a Olympique Médéa 3-1 win. Both sides have met seven times in the most recent seasons. Olympique Médéa has won 1 match, and USM Alger triumphed in 4. Recent outings average 3.57 goals, while both teams score 100% of the time.
Olympique Médéa's latest fixture against MC Oran ended in an away 0-0 draw. They were not spectacular, so this result seems fair.
USM Alger's recent game against WA Tlemcen ended in a home 1-0 win. L'USMA dominated the game and deserved the win. USM Alger put in a decent first-half display and scored in the 27th minute.
Since the start of the season, Olympique Médéa is more dominant at home. They have six wins out of 13 games on home soil. Olympique Médéa's good defensive display is key to their success. They didn't concede in 38% of home games.
USM Alger has picked up 11 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Ouled El Bahdja wins 1.18 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. USM Alger kept a clean sheet in just 27% of their visits.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Olympique Médéa or Draw.
Still, I expect a close game and don't think that we will see a lot of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 1.9 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 40% of Olympique Médéa's home and USM Alger's away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.
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 60% of Olympique Médéa's home and USM Alger's away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: No.
