Algeria trashed Guinea 3-0 in the AFCON

goals from Youcef Belaili and Riyad Mahrez set Algeria on the way to a comfortable 3-0 win over Guinea as they reached the Africa Cup of Nations quarter-finals on Sunday, reaffirming their status as one of the favourites for the title.

Algeria deservedly go through to the quarterfinals, there can be no question about that. The difference in quality between the two teams was far too big for Guinea to overcome. T

can leave the tournament with their heads held high, knowing that they did everything they could, but it simply wasn’t enough to stop an opponent notably superior.

Algeria and Guinea met at the 30 June Stadium in Cairo on Sunday evening to do battle in the round of 16 of the 2019 African Cup of Nations.

Algeria finished top of Group C with a maximum of nine points, ahead of Senegal, Kenya and Tanzania.

Guinea on the other hand finished third in Group B, and got through to the knockout stages only due to a 2-o win over Burundi in the last round.
