Two of the Algerians last five outings featured over 2,5 goals, and also two witnessed goals at both ends.
Guinea managed to progress past the group stage, thanks to their win in the last match with Burundi. Their task was made a lot easier when Burundi’s Cristophe Nduwarugira was sent off with just 12 minutes gone and Mohamed Yattara capitalized on the gaps left by the opposition’s defense by scoring a brace. Two of the country’s last five encounters produced over 2,5 goals and only the same matches saw both involved selections to hit the back of the nets.
