This match features two teams living in the basement of the Ligue 1, USM Bel Abbès holding 17th place and JSM Skikda lying 19th. A good chance for both teams to improve their position.

Insights:
  • USM Bel Abbès has the fewest points from losing position (-1) in Ligue 1
  • JSM Skikda is in the worst form (0-1-5)

There should be plenty of energy on the pitch in this game, as both sides have had time to recuperate from their last game. Let's hope both teams are ready to give it all.

One slightly interesting match fact is that this game is played on grass and that the visiting JSM Skikda have a different surface at their stadium (artifical turf). The impact of this is hard to measure exactly, but the visitors stats on grass is 2-5-15 (win-draw-loss) from 22 matches.

It's time to recharge all electronic entertainment devices for JSM Skikda, who are travelling more than 900 kilometers to play this game.
