Supersport vs USM Alger stats and predictions

It's important to point out that Supersport United lost to Future FC by a lone goal in their opening group game. On the other hand, USM Alger kicked off their CAF Confederations Cup campaign with a 2-0 victory over Al-Hilal Benghazi.

As it stands, USM Alger lead the group standings with three points, while their South African opponents are in third place. Bearing that in mind, these are our predictions for Supersport vs USM Alger:

Prediction 1: USM Alger to win

We've established that Supersport United lost their CAF Confederations Cup opener. They are currently on a three-match losing streak, with no wins in their last four games.

Although Alger have had their fair share of struggles lately, they've fared better than their opponents in recent weeks. The Algerian side won three of their last five matches, scoring eight times in that stretch.

This will likely be a tightly-contested fixture, and we are leaning towards the visitors for the win.

Prediction 2: One team to keep a clean sheet

Our second Supersport vs USM Alger prediction is on the BTTS market. We would like to point out that both teams have not been very consistent when it comes to finding the net.

While Supersport United have lost three consecutive wins, they did not score in their last two games. Similarly, USM Alger failed to score in four of their last eight matches across all competitions.

Interestingly, both teams managed to score in just two of USM Alger's last eight matches. Considering Supersport's recent struggles in front of goal, we shouldn't expect goals at both ends.

Prediction 3: Under 2.5 goals

Supersport United have been involved in a few low-scoring matches recently, as three of their last four matches went below the 2.5 goal mark.

This has been the same case with USM Alger, who kept three clean sheets in their last eight matches whilst failing to score in four of them.

Fewer than three goals were scored in seven of Alger's last 10 games. For this reason, we are fairly confident that these teams will not score up to three goals between them.
