Team News: Sétif
Houari Ferhani (Knee Surgery), Amine Biaz (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Houssam Eddine Ghacha (Leg Injury), Youcef Amine Laouafi (Bruise) and Mohamed Djahli (Leg Injury) won’t be available for Sétif boss Kheirredine Madoui.
Team News: USM Alger
USM Alger has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Fateh Achour (Leg Injury), Aimen Mahious (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Anis Khemaissia (Ankle Fracture) will not be playing here.
We’re inclined to think that Sétif will most probably see a lot of the ball and convert quite a few goal-scoring opportunities.
However, USM Alger will not find it easy to score a goal of their own although we do reckon that they could well end up scoring here as well.
Our tip is for a pretty comfortable 3-1 winning margin for Sétif at the end of this one.
