Sétif, who won their previous game, will hope for a similar result following a 4-0 Ligue Professionnelle 1 success against Mlila.Their more recent scorelines really do illustrate the point that much solidity has been shown by the Sétif rearguard. El Kahla have been stingy, seeing the number of goals that have flown into the back of their net during their last 6 games standing at 4.
Kabylie come into this match following on from a 1-0 Ligue Professionnelle 1 win to defeat RC Rélizane in their most recent match. A series of reliable displays from the Kabylie defence has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded standing at 4 from their last 6 clashes combined. In that period of time, their forwards have scored 8. Even so, time will tell whether such a trend will be maintained in this match.
Head to head
An inspection of their past head to head meetings going back to 07/11/2017 tells us that these encounters have been miserable for Sétif. They have not been able to get themselves any wins at all while Kabylie have just been too good for them, beating them in 67% of those matches.
Fans would have hoped for more goals in them, as well, with a sum of 4 scored between them overall.
Team News: Sétif
Mohamed Djahli (Leg Injury), Houari Ferhani (Knee Surgery), Amine Biaz (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Messala Merbah (Bruise) will not be able to play for Sétif boss Kheirredine Madoui.
Team News: Kabylie
Due to a fully healthy squad available to choose from, Kabylie manager Azzedine Aït Djoudi does not have any fitness worries at all before this match.
When taking all factors into account, Sétif will probably convert a lot of goal-scoring opportunities. However, Kabylie could well find it tough to get a goal of their own although I do think it’s probable that they will be hitting back at some stage here, too.
