Both teams scored in the first matches that both of these sides played in AFCON 2019 and the same can happen again here. Tunisia have now seen a both teams to score bet win in their last three matches played and the same can be said of Mali’s last four fixtures.
At odds of 11/10, this isn’t a bet to miss on today’s matches and it goes in as our NAP of the day too.
This is a massive game for both sides, especially Tunisia who could only manage a point in their first match. Mauritania look like the side that everybody will take points off in this group and Mali did exactly that with a convincing 4-1 victory in their first Group E match. They’ll now look to book their place in the knockout stages with another victory today.
However, Tunisia are a strong side and won all three of their warm-up matches before this tournament including an impressive win against World Cup finalists Croatia. The Carthage Eagles would have been disappointed with the draw against Angola and they could make amends here with a close fought victory.
Our Tunisia vs Mali Betting Tip:
A close match is in prospect here but you shouldn’t be blinkered by Mali’s impressive 4-1 win in their first match. It was against one of the weakest sides in the African Cup of Nations and their form before the tournament does not make as plesent reading for fans of the Eagles of Carthage. They lost 3-2 against Algeria, drew 1-1 with Cameroon and lost 2-1 against Senegal. Although they did score in all three of those matches, they could suffer the same fate today and go down to a narrow defeat. That would leave them on three points with Angola still left to play so there own destiny would still be in their hands.
These sides last met in the 2016 African Cup of Nations, with Mali running out 2-1 winners.
They have only ever met three times, with both teams scoring in the last two matches and Mali winning two, to Tunisia’s one.
Mali’s main attacking danger is Porto’s Moussa Marega, who is 11/4 with Paddy Power to score anytime.
