Six: Three points is a must

Nothing but victory will give Algeria and Togo a chance to make it to the next round of the Africa Cup of Nations after both suffered deflating defeats in their opening matches.

Algeria dominated against Tunisia with possession and shots on goal in their Group D opener, but finally succumbed to a 90th minute strike by Youssef Msakni that gave the Carthage Eagles victory while Togo had a goal disallowed against Ivory Coast in a game they lost 2-1.

Losing in this weekend's match means the loser goes home, while a draw will give them a slim chance of advancing to the quarter-finals.

According to Togo coach Didier Six there is no other result but a win: "We must now regroup quickly and get ready for our must win contest against Algeria. We must win because that is the only way we can reach the last eight of the tournament."

Both teams are fully fit and should field the same XI that competed in the first matches. Fans, too, will be delighted as this is another double-header at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium.

Kickoff is at 8pm after the Ivory Coast-Tunisia clash.
