Burkina Faso and Algeria will battle for three points in a 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier in Marrakesh, Morocco on Tuesday.

Burkina Faso come into the game on the back of a 2-0 away victory over Niger on Thursday. Lassina Traore and Mohamed Konate scored late goals to give the Stallions all three points.

Algeria ran riot in an 8-0 whitewash of 10-man Djibouti on the same day. Islam Slimani was the star of the show with four goals while Riyad Mahrez also got in on the act with a late strike.

The convincing victory helped the Desert Foxes climb to the summit of Group A on goal difference. Burkina Faso are just below them in second spot.

Burkina Faso have the ability to trouble the biggest sides in Africa on their day but the quality available to Algeria means that there should ostensibly be only one winner here.
