Algeria Ligue 1 Professionnelle: CR Belouizdad closes in on another title

The 25th round of matches took place on Tuesday and Wednesday in the Algerian Ligue 1 Professionnelle and it is CR Belouizdad who are the leaders as the 2022-23 season approaches its conclusion. Le Grand Chabab defeated MC El Bayadh by a score of 3-1 away from home to maintain an eight point lead at the top of the table. Cameroonian striker Leonel Wamba scored twice and Mohamed Belkhir confirmed the three points for CRB by finishing for the third goal.

CAF Confederation Cup champions USM Alger returned to domestic league action on Wednesday and a late goal from captain Zineddine Belaid was the difference in a 1-0 victory over US Biskra. USMA are continuing to gain ground on the rest of the league with games to make up due to their participation in the Confederation Cup, currently sitting in seventh place following the result.

CS Constantine are in second place after keeping pace with CRB by defeating RC Arbaâ 2-0. JS Kabylie are continuing to move away from the relegation battle after a 2-0 victory over MC Alger. JSK have four wins and two draws in their last six matches since being eliminated from the CAF Champions League and recently appointed head coach Youcef Bouzidi is doing excellently to guide his team out of danger.
