The Ligue Professionnelle 1 game at Complexe Sportif d'El Alia on Friday sees home side US Biskra up against opponents in USM Alger.
Full predictions, pre-match stats and user poll for US Biskra v USM Alger are shown on this page (plus the best game odds).
US Biskra won’t want a repeat of their last result here after the 6-0 Ligue Professionnelle 1 losing effort in their last game against Oran.
Under three goals per match were seen in 5 of the last 6 fixtures where US Biskra have been involved. Breaking down the goal attribution during that period, opposition teams scored an aggregate of 11 while US Biskra totted up 2.
Heading into this contest, US Biskra haven’t won at home in the past 6 matches in the league. That's never good.
Since being defeated in their last game at the hands of Mlila in Ligue Professionnelle 1 competition, USM Alger and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
A series of resolute showings from the USM Alger defensive unit has resulted in their ‘goals against’ tally amounting to 4 from their past 6 outings combined. In that time, the number of goals that they have scored themselves is 9. Such a trend isn’t assured to follow through into this game, of course.

Adel Lakhdari (Leg Injury), Mohamed Ikbal Boufligha (Leg Injury) and Hamza Heriat (Shinbone injury) are unavailable for manager Nadir Leknaoui.
Team News: USM Alger
USM Alger has a number of players out of action. Fateh Achour (Leg Injury), Saâdi Redouani (Leg Injury) and Abdelkrim Zouari (Leg Injury) miss out here.
In our opinion, USM Alger and US Biskra could well both score and end up finding themselves in a fairly even game here.
Shouldn’t be much in it, and a draw looks quite a realistic result. With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a very even match with a 1-1 scoreline when all is said and done.
