A few days after beating this opponent 1-0, the Fennecs U20 were hooked by their Burkinabè counterparts on Tuesday at the Nelson Mandela stadium in Algiers. The hosts opened the scoring through Lyon striker, Djibril Bahlouli (1-0, 17e) on a cross from Issam Yazid. The Burkinabè will come back to the score shortly before the break thanks to Chabane Camara (1-1, 43e).
