The upcoming World Cup Qualifying clash between Uganda and Algeria at the Mandela National Stadium on Monday is set to be a thrilling encounter.

Both teams are vying for crucial points in Group G, where the competition is tight.

Match Preview

Uganda and Algeria are tied on six points each, alongside Guinea and Mozambique. This match could be pivotal in determining which team gains the upper hand in the group standings.

Uganda comes into this game on the back of a 1-0 win against Botswana, thanks to a late goal from Muhammad Shaban. Despite their points tally, Uganda is third due to an inferior goal difference.

Uganda's Recent Form

Uganda has had a mixed run in 2024, with two wins, one draw, and one loss. Their campaign began with a 2-1 loss to Guinea but bounced back with a narrow 1-0 win over Somalia. The team will be looking to build on this momentum against Algeria.

Historically, Uganda has struggled against Algeria, losing both previous encounters in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Algeria's Recent Form and Challenges

Algeria has had a rocky start under new manager Vladimir Petkovic. After winning their first two qualifiers against Somalia and Mozambique, they suffered a 2-1 defeat to Guinea.

This loss has put added pressure on Petkovic, who replaced Djamel Belmadi after a disappointing AFCON campaign.

Algeria’s recent form is concerning, with just one win in their last six matches across all competitions.

Team News

Uganda

Kampala City forward Muhammad Shaban may start after his impactful performance against Botswana.

Key players like Bevis Mugabi are missing, so the defensive lineup will likely include Halidi Lwaliwa and Isaac Muleme.

Algeria

The team is missing star winger Riyad Mahrez due to injury, along with Ramy Bensebaini, Islam Slimani, and Youcef Belaili.

Petkovic might introduce AS Roma's Houssem Aouar, who did not play in the recent defeat to Guinea.

Key Players to Watch

Uganda: Muhammad Shaban, Halidi Lwaliwa

Algeria: Houssem Aouar, Saïd Benrahma

Prediction

Given the current form and lineup changes, a closely contested match is expected.

Uganda is showing signs of improvement, while Algeria is still finding its footing under new management.

Our Prediction: Uganda 1-1 Algeria
