Zambia have an opportunity to move within three points of leaders Nigeria in Group B of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers if they beat Algeria away in Constantine on Tuesday night.

Bottom of Group B side Algeria (1 point from three games) will hosts 2nd placed Zambia in a 21h30 kickoff in a match both sides must win to stay in contention.

Zambia have 4 points, six behind Nigeria who were held to a 1-1 away draw by 3rd placed Cameroon on Monday night in Yaounde.

That result ended Cameroon’s 2018 World Cup hopes with two games left on 3 points.

Zambia head into their match with Algeria on a high following a convincing 3-1 home win on Saturday in Lusaka.

“It will not be easy playing against a big team at their home where everyone will be there for them,”Zambia coach Wedson Nyirenda said.

“But I think we have the character to get a win.”

Zambia will be chasing history on Tuesday seeking a debut away win over Algeria who have won all three home games against Chipolopolo.

But Zambia are unbeaten in their last six matches since losing 3-1 to Zimbabwe in the 2017 Cosafa Cup finals last July in South Africa with five wins and a draw.

One of the key catalysts during Nyirenda’s best run since his appointment last September has been striker Brian Mwila who has scored four goals in three matches including a brace in the first leg against Algeria.

Mwila, who has 7 goals in eight matches overall for Zambia in 2017,is again expected to lead Chipolopolo charge as they seek their second Group B victory.

Victory will be paramount as Zambia head into their penultimate Group B date away to Nigeria on October 7 in what could define their destiny should Chipolopolo triumph in Constantine on September 5.
