Algeria eased into the quarter-finals on Sunday evening with a comfortable 3-0 win over Guinea. Youcef Belaïli opened the scoring in the first half for Les Verts before second-half strikes from Riyad Mahrez and Adam Ounas confirmed the victory.
Algeria dominated the early exchanges and really should have opened the scoring with twenty minutes on the clock. A long ball from Adlène Guedioura picked out Bagdad Boundjah in the box, chesting the ball down it sat up perfectly for the Al Sadd striker who smashed the ball well over the bar.
Eventually, Algeria took the lead with Boundjah turning provider for Belaïli. A neat lay-off left the winger with plenty to do but found the back of the net from the tightest of angles. Surprisingly Guinea had more shots and possession than their rivals, yet where unable to make their chances count
Into the second half and Riyad Mahrez all but assured the result with a classy strike. Picking up the ball just outside the box, the Manchester City star had plenty of time to compose himself and send a low shot past Ibrahim Koné.
With both Egypt and Morocco bowing out at the round of sixteen, the tournament has opened up for Djamel Belmadi’s side who will play the winner of Mali and Ivory Coast and on this form, they will have to fancy their chances.
Substitute Adam Ounas slid in to make it 3-0 on the 82nd and have desert foxes fans dreaming of a first AFCON triumph since 1990.
