Background: Algeria and tunisia drew one-all in their first-log Olympic qualifying soccer match at the Olympic Stadium in Algiers on Sunday (11 May).
Tunisia was first to score, with a goal headed by Mohieddine just before the interval.
Algeria fought back well in the second half and equalised nine minutes before the end of the match with a goal from a header by Madani.
The Tunisians took charge of the match in the first half and it appeared they would repeat their 2-1 victory over algeria in the African Nations Cup in Oran six week ago.
But the Algerians rallied after the interval and their persistence paid off.
