Background: INTRODUCTION Two teams in the first division of the Algerian football league met in a tense National Championship match in Algiers on Friday (7 January).
SYNOPSIS: The match was played between J.C. Kouba, and Mouloudia of Constantine at the Fifth of July Stadium in Algiers. The first half was a very even contest, with both sides forcing the opposing goalkeepers into several saves. Here, Constantine are attacking but a shot from Krokro went wide.
Constantine took the lead in the 44th minute of the match when Kecir hit a shot past Kouba goalkeeper Teldji.
Constantine started the second half in an attacking mood, but good defence stopped them increasing their lead.
Just after the restart Kouba mounted an attack on the Constantine net which ended with a goal from Sasafi, a member of the Algerian national team. The equaliser came less then five minutes after Constantine had taken the lead.
Both sides continued to attack for the rest of the half, but neither team was able to break through the other's defence to score the winning goal. The final score - one-all.
