Mauritania vs Tunisia Predictions


Tunisia are in outstanding form and could qualify for the Qatar 2022 World Cup if they win. Mauritania are stronger at home but have nothing to play for. I am tipping a narrow away win.

The sides last met on Thursday as Tunisia won 3-0 at home.

Mauritania Form


A 1-0 away win in Central African Republic saw Mauritania secure qualification for the 2022 AFCON. A 4-1 friendly defeat to Algeria and 1-0 win against Liberia followed before a 2-0 win against Yemen.

Mauritania have lost all three of their World Cup qualifiers so far. A 2-1 home defeat to Zambia preceded a 1-0 setback in Equatorial Guinea.

Their last match was a 3-0 loss away in Tunisia. The side trailed 2-0 at half time before conceding a late third goal.

Coach Corentin Martins is expected to make a few changes to his starting XI.

Tunisia Form


Tunisia are playing very well and have been beaten just once in 17 matches. A 2-1 home win against Equatorial Guinea completed a successful AFCON 2022 qualification campaign.

They followed that up with two friendly wins and a 1-0 defeat to Algeria. Tunisia began their World Cup qualifiers with a 3-0 home win against Equatorial Guinea and a 2-0 victory in Zambia.

Their last match saw a comfortable 3-0 win in Tunis against Mauritania. Ellyes Skhiri, Wahbi Khazri and Seifeddine Jaziri scored the goals.

Ferjani Sassi returns from suspension to boost midfield options. Defender Omar Rekik has joined the squad but the Arsenal defender is not expected to start.

Defenders: Wajdi Kechrida, Montassar Talbi, Yassine Meriah, Oussama Haddadi, Dylan Bronn, Ali Maâloul, Hamza Mathlouthi, Ali Abdi, Omar Rekik.

Verdict

Tunisia know they can seal qualification with three points whilst Mauritania have absolutely nothing to play for. I am tipping an away win.
