USM Alger will welcome MC Alger to Stade Omar Hamadi for a matchday 12 fixture in Algeria Ligue 1. The last meeting on 24th February 2020 ended in a MC Alger 1-0 win. Both sides have met fourteen times in the most recent seasons. USM Alger has won 4 matches, and MC Alger triumphed in 4. Recent outings average 2.21 goals, while both teams score 36% of the time.
USM Alger's last game in the Algeria Ligue 1 against JSM Skikda at home ended in a 4-1 win. Although L'USMA played less with the ball than their opponent, it was enough to get the result they were hoping for. USM Alger played much better in the first half and scored in the 7th, 34th, 62nd and 90+1 minute.
MC Alger's previous game in the competition versus NA Hussein Dey ended in an away 0-0 draw. The whole team didn't turn up, so in the end the draw was a good result.
Since the start of the season, Ouled El Bahdja is more dominant at home. They have eight wins out of 13 games on home soil. L'USMA's good defensive display is key to their success. They didn't concede in 54% of home games.
MC Alger has picked up 8 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Le Doyen wins 1.23 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. MC Alger kept a clean sheet in just 31% 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 USM Alger or MC Alger to win.
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 2.15 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 41% of USM Alger's home and MC 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 31% of USM Alger's home and MC Alger's away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: No.
