Mohamed Souibaa (Leg Injury), Adel Djerrar (Leg Injury) and Sofiane Bouchar (Knock) will be missing for Belouizdad manager Ivica Todorov.
Team News: USM Alger
USM Alger has to choose a team with limited availability. Aimen Mahious (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Fateh Achour (Leg Injury), Haithem Loucif (Knock) and Anis Khemaissia (Ankle Fracture) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
We believe that Belouizdad have it within them to get the goals that they need against USM Alger, who could well find it tough scoring a goal of their own.
