After his team won all three of their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations group stage matches, outscoring opponents 6-0, Algeria Coach Djamel Belmadi says that his sights are now set on nothing short of the AFCON trophy, according to BeIn Sports. That objective is perhaps made more realistic by the upset defeats of favorite Egypt and another highly-rated side, Morocco, already in the Round of 16. And on Sunday, Madagascar in their AFCON debut eliminated Democratic Republic of the Congo on a penalty shootout. If they can manage it, the title would be Algeria's first since 1990, and only second in history. But first the Desert Foxes must avoid becoming an upset victim themselves, when they face a determined underdog Guinea side in their first knockout stage match, which will stream live from Cairo.

Kickoff is set for 9 p.m. Eastern European Time on Sunday, July 7, at the 30,000-seat 30 June Stadium, also known as Egyptian Air Defense Stadium, in Cairo, Egypt.

Algeria have not always been the better team, historically. In 12 previous meetings dating back to 1972, per 11v11, the National Elephants actually have the better of it, taking five victories to four for Algeria, with three games drawn. But Algeria won the most recent clash, a friendly match in June of 2017.
The Algerians come in with the deeper side, using a team of mostly reserve players in their final group stage game against Tanzania, according to The South African. Algeria won anyway, 3-0, and now enter the knockout stage with a roster of well-rested starters ready to make a run at the AFCON title.
