Score Algeria VS Togo
As the 2014 World Cup continues, Sportsmail will be providing you with all you need to know about every fixture in Brazil from team news and key battles to betting odds and Opta stats... here is all the information you need for the game in Group H between Algeria and Russia.
Referee: Cuneyt Cakir, Turkey
Managers: Vahid Halilhodzic (Algeria), Fabio Capello (Russia)
Team news: Algeria could name the same starting XI that impressively beat South Korea last time out.
Stoke and West Ham target Islam Slimani should get another chance to shine up-front, while Tottenham's Nabil Bentaleb is set to retain his place in midfield.
Alan Dzagoev could also get a chance in from the start but defender Aleksei Kozlov is doubtful.
Key clash: Sofiane Feghouli v Dmitry Kombarov
Russia need a win to have any chance of progressing so expect to see Kombarov bombing forward down the left. Feghouli, who plays high on the right for Algeria, will look to drop in and exploit the gaps left by the full-back.
Tricky customer: Valencia midfielder Sofiane Feghouli (right) will be one of Algeria's main threats
VIDEO Team Profile: Algeria
One to watch: Igor Akinfeev (Russia)
The 28-year-old goalkeeper has been one of Russia’s weak links so far in Brazil. His blunder against South Korea nearly gifted them all three points, only for Alexander Kerzhakov to spare his blushes by scoring a late equaliser.
Head-to-head record: Played 1, Algeria Wins 0, Draws 1, Losses 0
Best bet: Game to be drawn 13-5
Room for improvement: Russia goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev will be looking to prove himself after making a howler in the draw with South Korea
