    Match Preview

    Algeria play Russia in Group H at Arena da Baixada in Curitiba and will be looking to upset the odds to make it to the Second Round.

    Having qualified for the 2014 World Cup in good style, Algeria will be looking to do much better than in the 2010 tournament in South Africa where they didn't manage to score a single goal. They faced Fabio Capello's England four years ago and it's the Italian tactician's Russia side who are expected to go through, but they will have to do a professional job in this final group game. This is the first meeting between these sides and the calibre of opponents in a qualification group which Russia topped suggests that they will be successful in this encounter.

    Islam Slimani and Hilal El Arbi Soudani will provide the most likely goal threat for Algeria, but Sofiane Feghouli often contributes from midfield and his knack of scoring first coupled with longer odds makes him an appealing bet in the goalscorer markets. It's a similar story for Russia with strikers Alexander Kerzhakov and Aleksandr Kokorin likely to be favourites in goalscorer betting, while probable penalty taker Roman Shirokov could be a better value alternative from midfield.
