Football Ligue 1: MCA Vs USMA and JSMB Vs USM Harrach
ALGIERS - The 11th day of the championship of professional football Ligue 1, Saturday will offer a platform for purists with the royal derby between MC Algiers and USM Algiers, while USM Harrach, performs a tricky trip to Bejaia.
- The 73rd derby between MCA and USMA will come with varying degrees of success for both teams.
If USMA prances at the top of the standings with 21 points, MCA (14th, 9 pts) is languishing at the bottom of the table with a relegation place that doesn’t honour the status of a "Dean", lacking confidence since the start of the season.
MCA, beaten in Khroub (2-1) will necessarily respond to its neighbour to get out of the zone of turbulence, while USMA will have to prevail and at the same time consolidate its leadership position.
For its part, USMH (2nd, 18 pts), will have to make a tricky trip to Bejaia to challenge JSMB, author of a resounding victory Saturday at the 20 August 1955 Stadium against the CR Belouizdad (2-1).
JSMB, which ended a series of four draws, will attempt to confirm its return to form, before a team of Shabab which saw the departure of Italian coach Giovanni Solinas.
