Tunisia Prediction- Can Tunisia build on point against Angola?

Tunisia sit in 3rd place in Group E and sit on one point following their opening match with Angola which ended in a 1-1 draw, after taking a 1-0 lead.

They now take on the early group leaders, Mali, and bring a 4-match unbeaten run into this clash having recorded 3 wins and a draw within this sequence.

Wins against Iraq, Croatia and Burundi in 2-0, 2-1 and 2-1 victories respectively along with the recent point against Mali should give them confidence of adding to their points tally here.

Indeed, recent results for Tunisia have been fairly solid and impressive in recent times as they’ve suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 6 matches overall.

That loss came in the shape of a 1-0 loss to Algeria, but they are one of the favourites to emerge from Group B and progress to the quarter-finals.

A result against Mali on Friday afternoon would go a long way towards securing their passage through to the last eight in this competition.

Mali Prediction – Can Mali maintain top spot?

Mali made an impressive start to their Africa Cup on Nations campaign when they recorded an emphatic 4-1 win over Mauritania.

This impressive victory in their opening match in Group E has sent them to the top of the group and they now look fairly well set to progress to the quarter-finals.

At least avoiding defeat in their next 2 group matches would virtually secure their place in the last eight but a win against Tunisia would guarantee their place.

However, recent results for Mali have produced mixed returns as they’ve registered wins against Gabon, South Sudan and Mauritania.

Defeats to Senegal and Algeria along with a draw against Cameroon however, don’t make Mali automatic candidates for all three points in this encounter.

Form away from home has also seen Mali struggle to string victories together on their travels as they’ve gained just 2 wins out of their last 14 matches on the road.

Out of the 3 encounters between these two teams to date, Mali have won 2 and Tunisia have won 1.


Key-Facts – Tunisia v Mali

  • Tunisia have lost just 1 of their last 6 matches in all competitions
  • Mali have gained just 2 wins out of their last 14 matches on the road
  • Mali have won 2 of the 3 encounters against Tunisia to date


Betting Tips Verdict

Tunisia will have been disappointed by their point against Angola and we can expect a better performance from them against Mali.
