However, if they manage to thrash France on Wednesday, they can get ahead to the round of 16, provided that the Denmark vs. Australia face-off ends in a draw. Indeed, Tunisia has to dig deeper to save its place in the World Cup.
According to online FIFA betting sites, the reigning World Cup holder, France, is likely to win in the final group stage before the knockout stages for the obvious reason of being the first team to qualify for the knockout round. All credit goes to its outstanding performance in the opening two matches. France secured the win with the score of 4-1 against Australia and thrashed Denmark by 2-1 with Kylian Mbappe’s brace in the second half on Saturday.
The previous matches show there is hardly any chance to sustain in the knockout stages as Tunisia will have to defeat France by a margin or a minimum of two goals. It seems to be a back-breaking task for the team, which is yet to score a goal in this tournament.
France has been the dominant side in these games as it has been unbeaten against the African team since the 1971 match. Moreover, France can secure an easy win over its North African opponents. The only drawback for France is that several of its players had suffered myriad injuries before reaching Qatar, with the addition of Lucas Hernandez’s ACL rupture while playing against Australia in the tournament.
