Algerian champion Belouizdad continues its domination in the Ligue 1 by managing the fourth victory in a row, last Friday away against 3rd placed Biskra. With these three points, they make 4 points difference from Saoura and Biskra and are at the top of the standings. The Brazilian coach Marcos Paqueta was satisfied with these positive results with only one defeat after 9 rounds with 6 wins and 2 draws. USM Alger in the last couple of months has had some financial problems like many other Algerian teams this season. They are winless in the past 3 matches against ASO Chlef, Oran, and Chelghoum who are teams from the lower part of the table, which will lead to an uncertain battle for survival in Ligue 1. In the last round at home, they take a point in a goalless draw against poor Oran, and of this match, key defender Bouchina is suspended. All in all, the positive mood and form are on Belouizdad side, which is one of the strongest home teams with 13 wins and 1 draw in the last 14 matches in the league (counting the last season) and should score the 5th win in a row.
