When the World Cup draw was announced, facing the likes of France, Denmark and Australia was always going to be tough for Tunisia.
Tunisians to Fall Short?
However, the Eagles of Carthage can still book their spot in the Round of 16 on the final day. They must beat France and hope for a favor elsewhere.
Tunisia kicked off their World Cup campaign with an excellent draw with the Danes. They were the underdogs heading in, but Kadri’s men held firm and stopped Denmark from scoring in Al Rayyan.
They went into their game against Australia on matchday two in high spirits after the Danish draw, but the Aussies nicked a tight and tense tussle at Al Janoub Stadium in Al Wakrah. Mitchell Duke’s 23rd-minute strike gave the Socceroos a 1-0 win.
Tunisians Toppling the World Champions
The Tunisians have never beaten France, and toppling the world champions will no doubt be an arduous task in midweek.
More worryingly for their supporters, Tunisia have yet to score from 27 shots at this World Cup, and they have only ever kept two clean sheets in 17 World Cup matches.
Our Tunisia World Cup predictions before a ball was kicked was the Eagles of Carthage to be eliminated in the group, and that looks very likely to happen. Read on for the best Tunisia vs France odds and tips.
Tunisia Projected Lineup
- Aymen Dahmen
- Montassar Talbi
- Yassine Meriah
- Dylan Bronn
- Wajdi Kechrida
- Ali Abdi
- Youssef Msakni
- Aissa Laidouni
- Ellyes Skhiri
- Naim Sliti
- Wahbi Khazri
No current injuries
Deschamps’ France have started the defense of their World Cup crown in fine fettle.
Will the Senegalese Build on Qatar Win?
The French have won two out of two in Group D and were officially the first nation to seal their passage through to the last 16. The real tests will start in the knockouts, but France have looked solid so far.
They fell behind to Australia early on in their opening group match of the tournament, with Craig Goodwin giving the Aussies a shock ninth-minute lead.
However, Les Bleus showed their class after that, and goals from Olivier Giroud (2), Adrien Rabiot, and Kylian Mbappe gave them a convincing 4-1 win.
They were also given a scare by Denmark in game two. Mbappe opened the scoring just after the hour mark, but the Danes were level minutes later. Mbappe popped up again late on to give the French a massive three points in Doha.
France Six Winning Streak
France have won each of their last six World Cup matches, which is their longest winning run in this competition.
Only Italy and Brazil have enjoyed longer winning streaks in World Cup history. Deschamps has an incredible record as France manager in World Cups, winning 11 of 14 games, and the 54-year-old will want his side to secure another three points here.
France are the big favorites to get the victory at Education City Stadium on Wednesday, and they should ease past the Tunisians and move on to nine points.
France Projected Lineup
- Steve Mandanda
- Benjamin Pavard
- Raphael Varane
- Ibrahima Konate
- Eduardo Camavinga
- Matteo Guendouzi
- Antoine Griezmann
- Youssouf Fofana
- Kingsley Coman
- Kylian Mbappe
- Marcus Thurman
- Karim Benzema
- Lucas Hernandez
Tunisia vs. France Pick and Prediction
France have never lost in four previous meetings with Tunisia (two wins, two draws). However, the last time they met, which was a friendly fixture back in May 2010, the North African side held the European giants to a 1-1 draw.
A draw will not be enough for the Tunisians in this one, and France will be formidable opponents for Kadri’s side.
Unfortunately for Tunisia, we fancy the French to ease to victory in Al Rayyan, even if the France manager does opt to chop and change his team.
Who to Bet On?
France have conceded in both games so far, but we are backing Deschamps’ boys to keep a clean sheet against a Tunisia side that has yet to score in Qatar.
You can get +125 for France to win to nil. There is also good value in +125 for the French to be winning at half time and full time.
