Algeria AFCON 2024 Predictions

Based on past results and current form, we have thoroughly analysed the Algerian team. Here are some picks you need to check out:

Outright Tournament Winner

With talents such as Riyad Mahrez, Said Benrahma, Sofiane Feghouli, and Houssem Aouar, who recently switched allegiance from France, punters can not write off this Algerian team. The odds of the two-time champions outright winning the tournament will be high across several online betting sites in Kenya since it is a risky pick. 


During the Algerian National Male’s team ride to victory in 2019, they faced big opposition like Senegal and Nigeria. The North African side won all three group matches against Kenya, Senegal and Tanzania.

They strolled past Guinea in the quarterfinal and defeated this edition’s host, Ivory Coast, in a penalty shootout in the quarterfinals.

It took an added time brilliant free kick by Riyad Mahrez to conquer Nigeria in the semi-final. Indeed, the Algeria AFCON team shocked the continent; predicting them to win games will give you a good return on your stake.

Over/Under Goals

Most experienced punters opt for the Under goals since most AFCON teams average 1-3 goals per game. Placing Algeria AFCON bets on the Over/Under market should depend on their opposition’s strength.
