Hussein Dey are hoping to win again following a 1-2 Ligue Professionnelle 1 success versus Olympique Médéa.
It’s been a rare occasion in recent games that Hussein Dey have shown defensive steel. In fact, Hussein Dey have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 12 goals on the way. That kind of pattern won’t necessarily be continued into this match, however.

Team News: Hussein Dey
The Hussein Dey boss Bilel Dziri has no fitness concerns whatsoever before this match owing to a fully healthy squad available to select from.
Team News: Sétif
Sétif boss Kheirredine Madoui has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Hicham Belkaroui (Leg Injury) and Sofiane Khedairia (Hand Injury) are not ready for selection.
We feel that over the course of the game, Hussein Dey will have a tough ask to register a score against this Sétif outfit who we think should gain the upper hand.
We’re going for a hard-fought 0-1 win for Sétif at the end of this one.
Looking forward to watching this one unfold.
