Our prediction for this World Cup 2022 match:
Algeria will look to seal their spot at the 2022 World Cup finals when they take on second-place Burkina Faso at Stade Mustapha Tchaker. The Desert Warriors are on a three-game winning run in Group A, but they would be happy with one point from the decider as well. Riyad Mahrez, who was rested in a 4-0 win over Djibouti, returns to the starting XI, as well as Islam Slimani.
Burkina Faso, on the other hand, surprisingly dropped two points in a 1-1 draw with Niger. As a result, they face a must-win situation in the Group A derby, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Algeria. Seeing that the Desert Warriors will have a number of opportunities to score on the break, home win should definitely be considered. The bad news for the visitors is that Akhmat Grozny attacker Mohamed Konate serves a one-game ban.
