The Carthage Eagles will be looking to secure a third win in Group H.

This fixture will be the third match for both the teams in Group H of FIFA World Cup African qualifiers. Tunisia have managed to win both of their matches in the group so far while Equatorial Guinea have failed to win any. If we see matches, other than just these qualifiers, Tunisia and Equatorial Guinea have both performed considerably well.

Both teams are capable of posing a considerable threat to their opponents. Looking at their FIFA rankings, Tunisia stands at 41 whereas Equatorial Guinea stands at 79. The hosts have played their last three matches against tough teams, New Zealand, South Africa and Croatia, and are likely to have better preparation for this game.

Kick-Off: 

Thursday, 6 June at 12:30 AM (IST)

Location: Stade Olympique Hammadi Agrebi, Rades, Tunisia

Form

Tunisia (All Competitions): W-L-D-D-L

Equatorial Guinea (All Competitions): L-W-L-W-W

Players to Watch  

Elias Achouri (Tunisia) 

This 25-year-old midfielder, who plays as a forward for the Tunisia national team is one of the most important players in the squad. Elias Achouri currently plays for F.C. Copenhagen in the Superliga. While playing for Copenhagen, in the Superliga and Champions League, Achouri has scored four goals in 29 matches and a single goal in 13 matches, respectively.

Oscar Siafa (Equatorial Guinea)

Oscar Siafa is one of the most talented players on the Equatorial Guinea squad. Currently, Siafa plays for US Allesandia Calcia in the Serie C league. The player has scored three goals in 24 matches in the league, all while receiving four yellow cards. Although he hasn’t been given a lot of chances in the national team recently, as Emilio Nsue is not present, Siafa might get the chance to prove himself here.

Match Facts

  • In the last three international matches, Tunisia were unable to score a single goal
  • In two out of the last four matches that Equatorial Guinea have won, they didn’t let their opponents score a single goal
  • The difference between the FIFA rankings of both the teams is quite wide as Tunisia is 38 spots ahead

Tunisia vs Equatorial Guinea: Betting Tips and Odds

  • Tip 1: Tunisia to win the match
  • Tip 2: Only Tunisia will score the goals
  • Tip 3: The match will end with goals under 2.5

Injury and Team News

Raki Aouani, a 19-year-old striker, might play for the hosts and make his senior team debut. 

Under Juan Micha’s management, Equatorial Guinea will be looking forward to getting back on track for World Cup qualifiers with their first win. Their top player Nsue is ruled out, and the effects can be seen, because he was the highest goal scorer for them.
