Tunisia vs Mauritania Predictions

  • Tunisia lost in their opener despite the referee blowing his whistle before the 90-minute mark.
  • Tunisia sit 73 places higher than Mauritania in FIFA’s rankings.
  • Mauritania conceded nine goals across the last four H2H meetings.
  • Mauritania are yet to win a group game in the AFCON proper (D2, L2).

Eagles set to soar against lowly Mauritania

Players and punters alike were left fuming after Tunisia’s opening game was blown for full-time at 85 minutes, and then less than 20 seconds prior to the end of the regulation 90 minutes despite VAR being required multiple times and numerous substitutions.

Following on from that controversial defeat to Mali, Tunisia should return with a fire in their bellies to put things right and qualify from a fourth AFCON group stage across the last five tournaments, including this one.

Mauritania look out of their depth

After their opening day defeat at just their second AFCON tournament, #103 ranked Mauritania have now won just one of their last 12 matches, hardly the kind of form you want to take into a game against former AFCON champions.

The Group F minnows will be all but eliminated if they lose this game, and we predict that is exactly what is going to happen after they failed to score in five of their last six meetings with Tunisia.

Combining both poor general and H2H form, and Mauritania’s lack of experience in this sphere in comparison to Tunisia, the 2004 Champions could very well produce a handicap-busting 2-0 victory in this all-important clash.
