Nigeria vs Algeria – All you need to know about the match



This is the first time Nigeria and Algeria will be meeting after 2019 AFCON semi-final encounter which was won in dramatic fashion by Algeria courtesy of a stoppage-time goal from Riyad Mahrez.

The international friendly game between Nigeria vs Algeria will kick of today, 9th October, 2020 – 19:30.

The match between three-time African champions and reigning continental champions Algeria was originally scheduled for the Jacques LeMans Arena but organisers say it will now hold at the Worthersee Stadion, Klangenfurt.

There is no need to look for where to buy ticket because it will be played without spectators.

Algeria come into today’s game on the back of an 18-match unbeaten run and they have not lost on the pitch since they were bumped by the odd goal in an AFCON 2019 qualifier away in Benin Republic in October 2018.

Two years earlier, they were trounced 3-1 by the Super Eagles in a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying match in Uyo. Both teams ended the return leg in Constantine 1-1, though the Eagles had already picked the only World Cup ticket from the group ahead of that final encounter.

Both teams will be desperate for a win to prove who is on top.
