Our prediction for this World Cup 2022 match:
Algeria and Djibouti take on each other in a David-vs-Goliath clash at Stade Mustapha Tchaker. The Desert Warriors are seen as No. 1 favourites to win Group A, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the minors. Since all Benrahma, Mahrez, and Slimani have been named in the Algeria squad, anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise.
Djibouti are on a six-game winless run in all competitions, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Algeria’s party at Stade Mushapha Tchaker. Head coach Julien Mette mainly counts on footballers who play for African clubs. You should bear in mind that this will be the first meeting between the two national teams in a competitive match. A man to watch in the away team will be captain Daoud Wais, who has 31 caps for the Djibouti national football team.
Highlighted Player (Andy Delort):
Born on the 9th of October, 1991, the Algerian international is an FC Sete youth product who spent 11 years at the club's academy before joining Ajjacio in 2008. Delort spent his first season at the French club playing for their reserve team but never made any first-team appearances.
The following season, he joined Nimes and made his professional debut, featuring for the club in their Ligue two match against FC Metz on the 30th of August, 2009. The striker then rejoined Ajaccio and scored his first professional goal on the 15th of September, 2010, in L'ours' french league cup game against Le Havre.
Delort then went onto have little stints at clubs FC Metz, Tours, Wigan Athletic, Caen, and Toulouse before joining his current club Montepillier initially on a loan deal in 2018 and then permanently next year. Additionally, the 28-year-old has capped five times for his country Algeria, making his International debut on the 16th of June, 2019, in Algeria's 3-2 friendly win over Mali.
