Algeria team news

Since the competition was conceived in 1957 only three nations — Ghana, Cameroon and Egypt — have successfully defended their AFCON crown. Algeria, who ended a 29-year wait for international glory last time out, come into this winter’s championship among the pre-tournament favourites. Djamel Belmadi’s men are on a 34-game unbeaten streak (consisting of 26 victories plus eight draws) and have Italy’s record for longest such run (37) in their sight. Baghdad Bounedjah, who netted the winner against Senegal in 2019, is expected to lead Algeria’s line with support from Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez.

Algeria predicted XI: M’bolhi; Atal, Mandi, Bedrane, Bensebaini; Zerrouki, Bennacer, Feghouli; Mahrez, Bounedjah, Belaili.

Sierra Leone team news

A 26-year wait to participate in Africa’s top international tournament ended for Sierra Leone, who are the underdogs in Group E which also features Equatorial Guinea and the Ivory Coast, not only that Leone Stars come into this opening game on the back of registering one win across their previous nine matches. Steven Caulker, who recently swapped international allegiance, is expected to start and make his national team debut. Umaru Bangura — his nation’s record appearance holder — will be key to any success given the plethora of inexperienced players around the defender: 22 of the 28 players in Sierra Leone’s squad have played less than 10 international games with four on 0 caps.

Sierra Leone predicted XI: M. Kamara; Kakay, Bangura, Caulker, Wright; Fofanah, J. Kamara, Quee; K. Kamara, A. Kamara, Kallon.

Scoreline prediction: Algeria 3-0 Sierra Leone
