The Grand Stand Prediction:

As things stand, Senegal know that a draw against the continents number one ranked nation will be enough to secure them safe passage into the knockout stages and a maintaining a shot at the golden prize of being the Kings of the Continent; yet one cannot expect their offensively impressive side to come out and defend with all the fire power they have at their disposal. Algeria will know that they cannot sit back and absorb pressure, something they’ve don very well throughout the tournament, as they know that a win will be top of their priority list if they want to cement their place as Africa’s premier football side by the time the final whistle is blown on February 8th. We expect a close encounter as the Group of Death comes to a close, both sides know that they may have to play a different game to what they are accustomed to and that could make for a cagey affair.
