DIRECT. Algeria Burkina Faso: Konaté opens the standings for the Stallions RMC Sport

Burkina Faso leads at break!

Thanks to a goal from Konaté in stoppage time, Burkina Faso leads 1-0 against Algeria at the break. The stallions had been harmless until this sudden impulse.


Incredible stallions! Konaté catapulted a header into the Fennecs' goal, the goal was initially rejected by the referee and then declared valid after the VAR was activated. Against the run of play, the Stallions took the lead in stoppage time and led 1-0 against Algeria

Algeria-Burkina Faso: 0-1

Four minutes of injury time

Players suffering from the heat have to play four more minutes.

Second big chance for Algeria

This time it is Feghouli who forces Koffi to parry a cross shot from the right. Bounedjah takes the ball but misses it completely.

There is already a change in the stallions

Blow on the ankle, Guira comes out, Ouédraogo comes into play.

Guira stays on the ground

But the Stallions midfielder got back up after a few minutes of play being stopped.

Huge opportunity for Algeria!

Bounedjah takes advantage of Dayo's poor recovery to place a shot that goes just wide of the Stallions' goal. It was very hot.

Sangaré, in turn, warned

The player from Burkina Faso receives a yellow card for a foul on Belaïli. He is the second stallion registered after Nagalo. Time for a refreshment break.

Bounedjah countered narrowly

The Algerian center forward found himself almost alone in front of the goal after a great collective movement. The stallions stop Bounedjah without making a mistake.

Belaïli very prominent

The former Brest and Ajaccio player is still working on an attack on the left. Safe for Burkina Faso.

Yellow card for Nagalo

The Stallions defender is booked for a foot too high.

72% possession for Algeria

The Fennecs show their technical ability, but we are waiting for a first clear chance.

Great try from Belaïli

The Algerian tries his luck very eccentrically on the left. His curling shot forces Koffi to make a good save. I'm not sure the shot hit the target.

Too much inaccuracy on the Algerian side

As with two long openings, the Fennecs struggled to get close to Burkina Faso's goals.

Slow pace at the beginning

The pace is not very fast in these first few minutes. A first header from the Stallions doesn't worry Mandrea.

Let's go !

Commitment to Algerians.

Let's hear the hymns

Burkina Faso will play in the green jersey, the Algerians in the white.
