Mauritania boss Corentin Martins da Silva would have feared the worst for his sides chances when they were hammered 4-1 by Mali in their opening AFCON 2019 fixture, but a creditable point against Angola in their second match has meant they still have a chance of qualifying for the knockout stages. The concern for them is scoring goals and although they found the net from the penalty spot against Mali, they didn’t register a shot on target in the 0-0 draw with Angola.
Tunisia would have been disappointed with their opening draw against Angola but they did manage a draw against Mali which would have been a decent result had they won their first match. Those two draws leaves them needing a win in this one to have any chance of topping Group E. Luckily for them, they’re playing what is their easiest of the three group games on paper last. Alain Giresse’s side are by no means prolific in front of goal, but they should see off Tuesday’s opponents.
Although Mauritania did score in the 4-1 loss against Mali, it was from the penalty spot and they didn’t create many other chances, having no other shots on target. This stat also rang true in their 0-0 draw with Angola, so the first of our Mauritania vs Tunisia predictions is for Tunisia to win this match to nil. The odds for this are 6/5 with William Hill.
Under 2.5 goals would probably be a good option if you were betting on an under/over 2.5 goals bet today, however the odds are too short for our predictions here. Instead, a correct score tip is going the be the option and we’re betting on Tunisia to win this match 2-0. They will need to improve on their first two matches but this is against weaker opposition who struggle to score goals.
