The hosts come into the game off the back of a 1-1 draw away to Burkina Faso in the qualifiers last month. Sofiane Feghouli and Abdoul Tapsoba scored in either half to share the points at fulltime.
Niger secured a 4-2 away victory over Djibouti. Adebayor Adje scored a second-half brace to inspire a comeback victory for the Mena.
That win propelled the west Africans to third spot in Group A, having garnered three points from two matches. Algeria are joint-top of the standings with Burkina Faso on four points.
Algeria vs Niger Head-to-Head
This will be the seventh meeting between the two sides and Algeria have a better record with five wins to their name. Niger were victorious on just one occasion while both teams are yet to play out a draw.
They last clashed in a 2006 FIFA World Cup qualifier in November 2003 when Algeria ran riot in a 6-0 victory on home turf.
The home side are currently on a remarkable unbeaten run stretching back to October 2018. Their sole defeat in this time came at the Africa Nations Championship for players based in the domestic league.
Algeria's draw with Burkina Faso halted an eight-game winning run. Niger have won two of their last five matches.

Algeria vs Niger Prediction
Algeria have several proven players on the highest stages within their ranks and this is vastly superior to anything that Niger have to offer. Jean-Michel Cavalli's side are likely to sit deep and try to absorb the pressure of the Desert Foxes. However, their efforts could be futile.
The hosts will be looking to maintain their lead at the summit with a convincing victory and we are backing the African champions to triumph comfortably.
Prediction: Algeria 4-0 Niger
