Algeria vs Burkina Faso, World Cup Playoff 2nd Leg; 1:15pm ET Kickoff

The final game of the World Cup playoffs from the African continent will decide whether Algeria or Burkina Faso will play in next summer’s World Cup.

The first leg of this tie in Burkina Faso was one of the most exciting of the entire qualification campaign on any continent. Burkina Faso won 3-2 in a back and forth game, the winning goal was scored on a contentious late penalty.

Algeria aren’t in a bad position with a one goal deficit and two away goals, but Burkina Faso proved in the last leg they can play with Africa’s big boys. Burkina Faso are trying to qualify for their first World Cup, and much like Jordan, the country didn’t even exist in some of the football glory days of its opponent.

Burkina Faso are upstarts in this region, while Algeria have a well-deserved reputation for hot-headedness, and the Desert Foxes can run hot and cold.

The best bet for fireworks in the African qualifiers is in this game.
