Re: ACN 2013 - Group D Tunisia vs Algeria under 2.5 goals @ 1.55 Betfair I rarely bet on goals and those odds don't look the most appealing :lol but I have a really instinct of a low scoring match here. Primarilly being defensive (mainly due to the lack of quality in attack), these are also rivals geographically and I imagine a frenetic game dominated by territory gain in the middle of the park. Granted my knowledge is not the best of either team cup format (especially the ACoN) usually attracts low scoring matches early on. Another important point is the loser will be staring down the barrel already due to the strongest team (by far) being in the group, Cote D'Ivoire, who are widely expected to win each game. If this game goes the way I think it should be a limp low scoring game, most likely a draw.

Re: ACN 2013 - Group D Draw and unders are priced quite low in my opinion. The Algerian manager has said that this is a must win game and his team will go for it. Both sides are weaker than they have been in the past. Algeria have lost a lot of players and have a very inexperienced squad so I think there is a small amount of value in tunisia at 3.0.

Re: ACN 2013 - Group D Tuesday previews: 4pts Togo (+1.5AH) to beat Ivory Coast 1.81 BetVictor Although Ivory Coast are the heavy favourites for this match I’m not convinced they’ll win this by a landslide. All six matches so far in the tournament have been tight and I think this one can be as well. Ivory Coast haven’t won their opening match by more than one goal in this tournament since 1994 and they can’t go all guns blazing here because Adebayor could easily make them pay so I expect a tight match and even if Ivory Coast do win I think it could be by just the odd goal which leads me to take Togo with a 1.5 goal head start. Full preview here: http://www.punterslounge.com/ivory-coast-vs-togo-betting-togo-can-keep-the-tournament-favourites-honest-in-group-d-opener 3pts Algeria vs Tunisia - Draw 21/10 Skybet I really do think this will be a close game and it looks like one of them which both sides will be eager to win because of the Ivory Coast effect in this group but it may be that they are so eager that they are scared of making a crucial mistake and they end up cancelling each other out and have to settle for the draw. All the matches so far have been tight and I see this being no different. Full preview here: http://www.punterslounge.com/tunisia-vs-algeria-betting-tight-game-expected-between-north-african-rivals

Re: ACN 2013 - Group D Algeria v Tunisia Maghreb derby is ahead of us between the two nations that are very hate each other. Both sides are without several international players who play in Europe, but the Desert Foxes have a better coach and a better team in my opinion. Also, Algeria has better record in h2h games (20-13-14) while Tunisia will be without their captain and regular keeper tonight. I must try... Algeria (DNB) @1.90 (Coral, Pinnacle) low stake

Re: ACN 2013 - Group D Wednesday previews: 4pts Ivory Coast to beat Algeria 4/5 Blue Square Even though Ivory Coast are going to rest players I still think the 4/5 on them is good value as their second string will win most matches in this tournament. Algeria have been that poor that I don’t expect them to cause too many problems here and I’d expect a lot of their players will now be thinking about getting back to their clubs for the rest of the season. The braver punter might take Ivory Coast to win to nil but I’m happy to just settle for the win. Full preview here: http://www.punterslounge.com/algeria-vs-ivory-coast-betting-ivory-coast-s-second-string-can-keep-their-100-record-in-tact 4pts Togo (+0.25AH) to beat Tunisia 1.95 BetVictor On the evidence of what we’ve seen in the tournament thus far I think Togo are the value in this match but it will be nervy and it will be edgy so this isn’t a match for going gung ho on the straight win I don’t think. On the Asian handicaps we will get a half win on Togo if this ends in a draw and I think that’s excellent value in this match as for my money Togo have been the better of the two in this tournament so far.

Re: ACN 2013 - Group D Purely judging by the H2H between these 2 sides in the last 3 games. Tunisia have came out on top each time. I agree it will definitely be a edgey game as winner takes all. It will all depend on the time of first goal if any. I see it all happening in the second half. my bet would be 2nd half with the most goals. Correct score prediction 2-1 Tunisia
