Algeria will host Mali in an international friendly at the Oran Olympic Stadium on Wednesday night. Both sides missed out on a place in the finals of the upcoming World Cup in Qatar, having lost their playoff fixtures. Algeria lost to Cameroon on away goals after the two legged tie ended 2-2, while Mali suffered a narrow 1-0 aggregate defeat to Tunisia, back in March. Meanwhile, the hosts are heading into the match on the back of a narrow 1-0 victory over Syria in a friendly on Sunday, while Mali were last in action in September, having played out a goalless draw against Zambia. 

Algeria got the better of Syria on Sunday courtesy of Djamel Belmadi’s lone goal 20 minutes from time. It was a tough game for the North African outfit as the Syrian’s showed great fighting spirit till the final whistle. The result helped the Desert Warriors to extend their unbeaten run to 13 games. After one more friendly against Sweden next week, the Fennec Foxes will begin their African Nations Championship campaign against Libya in January. Mali, on the other hand, since losing out to Tunisia in the third round of World Cup qualification playoff, have been near perfect even since and will be looking to continue in the same vein. Les Aigles have lost just one of their last eight outings.
