Algeria (in all competitions): D-W-L-D-D

Guinea (in all competitions): W-W-L-W-L

Players to Watch

Houssem Aouar (Algeria)

Houssem Aouar who joined AS Roma as a free agent in the summer of 2023 will be the one to watch. The 25-year-old had made 16 Serie A appearances in the 2023-24 season scoring four goals in total. Aouar will be looking to add to his Algeria national team tally of two goals in five appearances.

Serhou Guirassy (Guinea)

Without a question of doubt, the main man for Guinea is Serhou Guirassy. If Harry Kane wasn’t playing in the Bundesliga, the 2023-24 season, Guirassy could have won the Golden Boot. The forward netted 28 goals in the same number of league appearances.
