Magra make the trip to Stade Omar Hamadi on Friday for the Ligue Professionnelle 1 showdown with home team USM Alger.
All of our predictions, stats and the user poll for USM Alger v Magra are shown below (plus the best game odds).
USM Alger will be wanting a better result here after a 1-0 Ligue Professionnelle 1 loss in their previous game against US Biskra.
Their latest results shine a light on the fact that things are going according to plan in the USM Alger rearguard. Ouled El Bahdja have been mean at the back, resulting in the number of goals that have gone in at their end over the course of their previous six games standing at 4. We will find out if that trend will end up being sustained in this game.
In their last fixture, Magra drew 2-2 in the Ligue Professionnelle 1 match with Bordj Bou Arréridj.
It is worth noting that Magra have made hard work of scoring goals over their last six clashes, recording the unsatisfactory return of only 4. In those fixtures, Magra have also seen the overall goal aggregate of opposing teams equal 6.
Coming into this clash, Magra have not won away from home in their last 11 matches in the league. A poor run.
Team News: USM Alger
Saâdi Redouani (Leg Injury), Abdelkrim Zouari (Leg Injury) and Fateh Achour (Leg Injury) will be missing for USM Alger .
Team News: Magra
Thanks to a mainly available squad, there is just the sole fitness issue for the Magra manager to be concerned about. Mounib Benmerzoug (Unknown Injury) won’t be in action.
Our thinking is that USM Alger will most probably be able to create a decent number of chances and shots on target.
At the other end, Magra are also probably going to find it difficult to make a breakthrough but we can see them converting at least once.
Accordingly, we see a 3-1 winning score for USM Alger at the end of this one.
