Algeria vs Nigeria: Mahrez tips Super Eagles as favourites for the trophy


Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez has disclosed that Nigeria will be a tougher opponent than Cote D’Ivoire ahead of their AFCON 2019 semi final clash with the Super Eagles.

The Algerian captain also added that the Super Eagles have more time to rest following their 2-1 victory over South Africa.

The Desert Warriors battled the Elephants a day later and played into extra time before winning on penalty shoot-out.

And the three-time African champions are looking like the favourites over the North African opponents as they have never lost to Algeria on the field of play in 29 years.
