Algeria lock horns with Ghana at the Education City Stadium in their pre-AFCON preparatory fixture on Wednesday.

Algeria had their friendly game against the Gambia canceled on account of COVID-19 cases in The Scorpions' squad.

Algeria are among the strong favorites to win the AFCON this year and face Sierra Leone, Equatorial Guinea and Ivory Coast in Group E. Ghana face Comoros, Gabon and Morocco in Group C.

There are some worries over the game being canceled as there are a number of injuries and COVID concerns among the Ghana squad.

Algeria vs Ghana Prediction

Algeria have been training in Doha since last week and should be warmed up enough to have a good outing here. They enjoyed great results in 2021 and are expected to continue their great form at the AFCON.

Ghana also have a good squad, but both sides will be without key players and a draw is the most likely outcome here.

Prediction: Algeria 2-2 Ghana
