Algeria, host of the 2023 African Nations Championship, will face Ethiopia at the Stade de Baraki on Tuesday, with the goal of being the first team to secure a place in the tournament’s knockout stage. The Walia Ibexes, on the other hand, were unlucky not to walk away with maximum points in their group A opener against Mozambique on Saturday and will work to get their title chase back on track in order to win it.

Algeria set off their campaign to become the first team to win the Africa Nations Championship by claiming a hard-fought and narrow 1-0 victory over Libya in the tournament’s opening match on the previous Friday. After a scoreless first half at Baraki, the game’s first goal came from the penalty spot three minutes before the hour mark. Aimen Mahious made the conversion with aplomb to give the hosts an ideal start to the season. After a difficult pre-tournament campaign in which they did not win any of their three warm-up matches, Madjid Bougherra will be impressed with his side’s performance on the first day of the tournament and will hope that it may serve as a springboard for a run to win the championship. Algeria’s first and only appearance at the CHAN was in 2011, and they finished in third place after suffering a 1-0 loss to Sudan in the third-place playoff after losing to Angola on penalties in the semi-finals. Algeria’s objective will be to do better than they did in 2011, which was their first and only appearance at the CHAN.

Ethiopia played without much cutting edge in their first group game, which led to a somewhat disappointing scoreless tie with Mozambique last Saturday. The Walia Ibexes had the upper hand for the whole game and held the majority of possession; nevertheless, they were unable to capitalize on a number of excellent scoring opportunities and ultimately had to settle for a split of the spoils. This came after Morocco defeated them in their final warm-up match on January 7 by the score of 1-0 thanks to a late goal scored by Saifeddine Alami at Rabat’s Mohammed VI Football Academy. The team captained by Wubetu Abate goes into the midweek matchup aware that anything less than a perfect victory could deliver a significant setback to their hopes of winning the Africa Nations Championship for the very first time. But they will have to get past a strong Algerian team that has won all seven of their most recent games against them, with a record of four wins, three draws, and one loss by a score of 3-1 at the 1968 Africa Cup of Nations.

Algeria, who have an outstanding extra edge here due to the backing they receive from their fans at home, will try to build on the showing they gave on Friday by putting on yet another impressive performance. We anticipate that Ethiopia will put up a fight, but we are picking Bougherra’s team to pick up where they left off and win all three points on their own turf.
