The Smurfs head here after finishing behind league leaders CR Belouizdad in the Algerian Ligue. Even though they finished as the runner-up last season, CS Constantine had a horrible ending, winning just once in their previous five games. Bougherara failed to impress in the CAF Champions League, losing both legs against Etoile du Sahel. They began their league campaign with another defeat on the road, losing (1-0) to MC Bayadh.
CS Constantine are more of an attacking side, with almost forty goals scored last season, but are yet to find the back of the net this season.
Patrice Beaumelle's men have had a remarkable start to the season, winning (4-0) at home against newly promoted ES Ben Aknoun. With four different goalscorers, MC Alger found the back of the net twice in both halves to assume the top spot. The Mouloudians enjoyed a comfortable victory over their opponent but will test themselves against a proven side tomorrow.
