On the second day of the group stage of the World Cup, the two outsiders of France’s group face-off, which is bad luck for the loser, who will likely face elimination as early as the second match.
✔ 1×2 Prediction: Tunisia vs Australia
The encounter between these two teams promises to be open and enthralling. Tunisia is the narrow favourite, but watch out for Australia who won’t be feeling any pressure at all. With that said, we see Tunisia winning by a slight margin.
✔ Exact Score Prediction: Tunisia vs Australia
In this highly anticipated matchup of the 2022 World Cup, our prediction for the score is a match dominated by Tunisia, who should be able to take the win by the smallest of margins in this matchup.
Victory for Tunisia
This is the most likely outcome. Tunisia seems the superior team on paper and should be capable of dominating the match. They will have to demonstrate patience to score, faced with a team who will be happy to mount a defence in order to keep the score even for as long as possible. We foresee a score of 1-0 or 2-1.
This is a possible outcome. Both teams might walk away with a point since there isn’t a huge difference in level between the two squads. As such, we should not write off the possibility that neither team will get a lead over the other. A 1-1 or 2-2 draw could come about.
Victory for Australia
This is, at the moment, the least likely scenario. Australia will be the surprise guest in this group, and will not be starting out as the favourite. Though perhaps this will allow them to make an impact this year at the Qatar World Cup. A victory of 0-1 or 1-2 would be an impressive feat.
✔ Half-time/Full-time prediction: Tunisia – 1st half; Tunisia 2nd half
In this matchup, we can see Tunisia scoring in the first half. Then, they should be able to hold onto their lead while resisting Australian efforts, with the latter more than capable of giving their all to make a comeback in the last 15 minutes.
✔ Scorer Predictions: Tunisia vs Australia
In this matchup, we can see Tunisian striker Saifeddine Jaziri finding the way to the net, and the same can be said for his teammate Naïm Sliti. On the Australian side, Jackson Irvine will be without a doubt the one to watch.
✔ Double Chance Scoring predictions: S. Jaziri / J. Irvine
The match might allow some stars to shine. There is a chance, as we have suggested above, that we might see Saifeddine Jaziri and Jackson Irvine score. Thus we offer you this double change scoring prediction.
📄 Match Analysis: Tunisia vs Australia
In order to reach the 2022 Qatar World Cup, Tunisia first had to finish top of group B in the second round of the eliminations for the African zone, in front of Equatorial Guinea. The Tunisians then played two legs against Mali, which they won thanks to a goal in the away leg (1-0, 0-0).
Australia have suffered, but will still see the World Cup. They easily finished top of the group in the second round of the eliminations for the Asian zone, with 8 wins in as many matches. The Australian team eventually finished 3rd in its group, behind Saudi Arabia and Japan, in the 3rd round. Finally, the Oceanians dominated the United Arab Emirates in the semi-finals of the playoffs (1-2) and went on to beat Peru (0-0, 5 penalties to 4).
First face-off in a World Cup setting. Even if the Tunisians and the Australians faced one another in the Confederation Cup in 2005, this will still be the first time that these two nations meet during a World Cup.
Tunisia managed to maintain an honourable streak in the African Cup of Nations in Cameroon last Winter. After making it through the group stage, they knocked out Nigeria in the Round of 16 before falling in the quarters to Burkina Faso. In March, the Tunisians managed to triumph over Mali in a two-leg play-off in order to qualify for their second World Cup in a row.
Australia wants to maintain its momentum. Having taken part in the play-offs for the Asian zone after finishing third in its group in the 3rd round of eliminations, Australia managed to pull off a win against the United Arab Emirates (1-2) before triumphing over Peru after a long, drawn-out match (0-0, 5 penalties to 4).
