The heavens flood gates opened on Algiers, Algeria on Thursday 12th September forcing USM Alger to abandon training as some sections of the city experienced floods.
USM Alger are set to host Gor Mahia in the First Round of the CAF Champions League at the Mustapha Tchaker Stadium on Sunday 15th September in a 10:45 PM (EAT) kick-off. The Algerian outfit has had their fair share of woes in the build-up to the clash with their players downing their tools due to salary arrears.
Alger had previously admitted that they could be forced to forfeit their return leg against Gor Mahia due to the harsh economic times at the club. Everything seems to be against the 2015 Champions League finalists as they were forced to abandon training due to the heavy rains that pounded Algiers on Thursday evening.
