VIDEO: Algiers derby between MCA and CRB ends goalless
In the opening game of the Algerian Ligue 1 season, MC Alger and CR Belouizdad played out a goalless draw at the Stade Omar Hamadi in the Algiers Derby, sometimes known as the ‘Big Derby’.
The home side, who are looking to bounce back from their dismal campaign last season, wanted to kick-off their campaign with a win in the illustrious derby – but were short on firepower as the away side returned to Mohamed Belouizdad with a point.
Chances were few in the Algiers derby; however, a moment of magic from MCA’s Sofiane Ben Braham could’ve sent the home fans wild, but the ball hit Tarek Cherfaoui.
MCA had the best chance of the match to make it 1-0, when Abderrahmane Hachoud’s thunderous free-kick from 25-yards out slammed against the post.
It is also worth mentioning that there was crowd trouble towards the end, when both sets of fans started throwing stones at one another.
