ES Setif meets USM Alger in a match of the 8th round of the Algerian Ligue 1.
ES Setif: After 6 wins, 6 draws and a loss, the home team is in the 3rd position with 24 points won. The home team comes into the game after a comfortable win (2-0) against Tadjenant. Also, ES Setif is undefeated in their last 6 matches. Although they have a very modest budget and no big stars in the team, they are still showing a great performance, especially when playing at home.
USM Alger: The away team is currently taking the 6th position in the league with 20 points won after 5 wins, 5 draws and 3 losses. After a draw (1-1) against JS Kabylie in the previous round, they have continued their inconsistent performance in Ligue 1. However, USM Alger is undefeated in their last 4 matches. This team has weak flanks and with big problems in their defensive line.
Conclusion: Bookmakers favour the home team here. On the paper, hosts are the better team but still, USM Alger is a tough nut to crack. Also, each of the last 5 matches that USM Alger have played had under 2.5 goals. Hence, we can expect another tight and a low-scoring match.
