The Ligue Professionnelle 1 fixture at Stade 8 Mai 1945 on Thursday sees home side Sétif ready themselves for the visit of Belouizdad.
All of our predictions, stats and the user poll for Sétif v Belouizdad are shown below including the latest game odds.
Sétif enter this match coming off the back of a 0-0 Ligue Professionnelle 1 drawn match against Oran.
An interesting theme in recent Sétif games is the high number of scores with a nil in them.
Taking their previous 6 matches leading up to this one, in 6 of them a wager on BTTS would have lost. That sort of pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward into this next game, of course.
Belouizdad go into this meeting after a 2-1 Ligue Professionnelle 1 win to defeat Olympique Médéa in their most recent fixture.
Belouizdad have attacked well in the lead-up to this encounter, having scored 15 goals in their previous 6 matches. Having said that, Belouizdad have had their own issues at the back, also conceding in 6 of those same outings.

If we look at their past head to head meetings going back to 15/02/2018, both clubs have shared the honours with Sétif winning 2 of those games, Belouizdad 2 and 2 being draws after 90 minutes of play.
An aggregate of 12 goals were yielded between them in this period, with 6 of them from El Kahla and 6 belonging to Laakiba. The average goals per game has been 2.
Team News: Sétif
The Sétif manager Kheirredine Madoui will be grateful not to have any fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this match thanks to a completely injury-free group to pick from.
Team News: Belouizdad
Owing to a fully healthy group available for selection, the Belouizdad boss Ivica Todorov has no fitness worries to report ahead of this clash.
For this match, we think that Belouizdad have enough to put one past this Sétif side, however that is unlikely to be enough to prevent defeat.
We can see a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 winning score for Sétif when the full-time whistle blows. Should be a good one.
