Our predictions, user poll and statistics for JSM Skikda v Sétif can be found here - plus the latest match odds.
JSM Skikda will want to continue from where they left off last time out with the 1-0 Ligue Professionnelle 1 triumph versus MC Alger.
It’s not been often in recent games that JSM Skikda haven’t conceded. It will be a concern for them that Skikda have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 12 goals on the way.
Sétif will come into the match after a 1-0 Ligue Professionnelle 1 win to defeat Kabylie in their last fixture.
A series of outstanding showings by the Sétif defensive unit has seen their ‘goals against’ tally amounting to 3 from their previous 6 outings in total. Over that same period of time, their forwards have scored 12. That aside, it remains to be seen whether the trend will continue on here in this game.
Coming into this fixture, Sétif haven’t won away from home in the past 3 matches in the league.
Team News: JSM Skikda
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just the lone fitness concern for the JSM Skikda boss to contend with thanks to an almost full-strength set of players. Aymen Khoudja (Hand Injury) will miss out.
Team News: Sétif
Sétif manager Kheirredine Madoui has a number of players out of action. Mohamed Djahli (Leg Injury), Houari Ferhani (Knee Surgery), Amine Biaz (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Houssam Eddine Ghacha (Leg Injury) and Youcef Amine Laouafi (Bruise) can’t be considered.
We’re inclined to think that JSM Skikda will have to work hard as a team to find the net against this Sétif side who we think might manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
We’re therefore expecting a very competitive game with a 0-1 winning score for Sétif at the end of the 90 minutes.
