Constantine have gone to the top of the Algerian league after an impressive victory against Biskra on Saturday.
Two goals from Mohamed Abid were enough to seal the three points, even though they were reduced to ten men after Ousmane Sylla was shown a straight red card.
Biskra did manage to pull one back through Boubacar Bagili, but it was too little, too late for the newly-promoted side who remain in the relegation zone.
Elsewhere, Belouizdad and Saoura played out a 1-1 draw. Mounir Aichi gave the hosts the lead after 18 minutes, but the desert side equalised after Abdelkader Salhi’s penalty save fell to Moustapha Djallit to convert the rebound. CRB remain unbeaten in #Ligue1DZ.
Bel Abbes had a brilliant performance at the weekend, beating Kabylie 4-1 in a very convincing victory. Two goals from Abdennour Belhocini put the game to bed, although JSK did pull one back from the penalty spot.
However, Hoauri Ferhani was sent off in the second half and Bel Abbes went on to win comfortably with further goals from Belahouel and Kherbache.
Reigning champions Setif drew 0-0 to Medea, and Tadjenanet inflicted more misery on Blida after Mohamed Attouche’s fourth goal of the season means Blida are still bottom of the table with just one point and no wins.
Paradou got a point away to Hussein Dey in a 1-1 draw, and Oran left it late to score two goals in the last two minutes of their match against Harrach where they won 3-2. Harrach are still looking for their first win of the season.
