    Algeria have played with credit thus far in Brazil, they held a one goal lead over a very talented Belgium side until 20 minutes from time in their opening match before going for the jugular to record a 4-2 win over South Korea. They could be about to reap the reward for those efforts as a draw will most likely be enough to progress to the next round, with South Korea needing a convincing and relatively unlikely win over group leaders Belgium to progress at their expense.

    Russia are yet to come to life in the tournament, they only went in search of a goal when they had gone behind against South Korea and seemed happy to settle for a point once they had equalised. Following that 1-1 draw they were made to pay when they conceded late on to lose 1-0 against Belgium, prompting manager Fabio Capello to come under criticism for playing to avoid defeat rather than go for a win. Refreshing news for the neutral then as anything but a win will see Russia exit the tournament, but a change of tactics may not be enough on the evidence of their poor attacking displays so far.

    Matt is dubious about the favourites in this match and "wouldn't fancy their chances of coming from a goal down against the Algerians, considering they have found the net just once all tournament." The African side got into the goal-scoring groove in their last match can earn a draw at best odds 11/4 with Boylesports, while those who fancy Russia to eventually spring to life should consider opening a Titanbet account for a price boost of 2/1 Russia to beat Algeria.

    Rafik Halliche has been a real rock at the back for Algeria and has provided a platform for the more creative players to build on such as Sofiane Feghouli who has converted from the penalty spot and set up a goal in the tournament so far. There are no reported injury concerns so the likes of Abdelmoumene Djabou, Yacine Brahimi and Islam Slimani are likely to retain their starting berths after impressing in the last match.

    Russia could be forced to make changes with Andrey Eshchenko likely to come in for Aleksei Kozlov after the right-back was forced off through injury against Belgium. Fabio Capello may replace the misfiring Alexander Kokorin with the scorer of Russia's only goal Alexander Kerzhakov up front, while Alan Dzagoev and Yuri Zhirkov will also be hoping to start.
