Algeria will starts its 2013 Africa Cup campaign against neighbors Tunisia on Tuesday. We played Tunisia in November 2011, just over a year ago, and beat them 1-0 in a rather dull affair. Tuesday's game might be more of the same in terms of excitement with both coaches going with defensive oriented line-ups (according to sources anyway). Algeria's rumored line-up is supposed to be:
M'Bolhi - Cadamuro, Belkalem, Medjani, Mesbah - Mostefa, Lacen, Guedioura, Feghouli, Kadir - Slimani
A 4-3-2-1 with Mostefa-Lacen-Guedioura in the middle. I really have no idea why Vahid would take such a cautious approach but we'll see how it works out. Personally, I'm not expecting much from a line-up that features Cadamuro at RB, 3 defensive midfielders and just Feghouli-Kadir playing behind Slimani.
Kickoff is at 7PM Algeria time.
