Algeria coach Djamel Belmadi tips Senegal as favorites in the final

19 Jul 2019, 10:30

Ahead of the 2019 African Cup of Nations final, Algeria coach Djamel Belmadi has come up with mind games, dubbing Senegal as the favorites.

Algeria have had a spectacular campaign, going unbeaten in all their games with the only blemish coming in the quarter-finals against Ivory Coast which ended in a 1-1 draw. The Desert Foxes have already gotten the better of Senegal in the group stages beating them 1-0 courtesy of a goal from Youcef Belaili.

Speaking in a press conference ahead of the final, Belmadi tipped Senegal as the favorites, "We are preparing in the best conditions and we are playing this match just to win. The group stage game is totally different, this is a decisive match. Both teams are on another psychological level. 

"We are playing against the best African ranked team, and they played in the previous World Cup, so we can lose, they are the favorites."

The game kicks off at 10 PM (EAT) on Friday 19th July at the Cairo International Stadium.
