We had a lot of surprises at the beginning of the World Cup, especially with Saudi Arabia beating Argentina and one of the best players in the world, Lionel Messi. Tunisia and Australia will clash on 11/26 in the second match of the group stage. This will be a very interesting match because Tunisia got a draw against Denmark, and Australia scored against France but also conceded four goals.
They have different styles of football, where Australia plays more on long passes, and Tunisia focuses on beautiful dribblings and short passes. It will be hard to beat Tunisia, which surprised everyone against Denmark, but both teams will struggle to get out of the group stage. We bring you the game preview for your bets on the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
Tunisia vs. Australia Qatar 2022 World Cup
Team News and Form
According to the first games that were played, Tunisia seems like a strong opponent, and they will have a slight edge over Australia. None of the players were injured, and both teams will be ready for the match. Both teams had difficulties reaching the World Cup, so they weren’t expected to reach the knockoff stage, especially because they are against France and Denmark in the group.
The coaches weren’t very satisfied with their performance, and the Tunisian coach said that the next game will be the most important, considering that Denmark will also have to play against France. The most likely scenario will be that the goal difference will decide who will finish second in the group.
Tunisia vs. Australia Lineups
Dahmen will be on the Tunisian goal line with three players by his side, including Bronn, Meriah, and Talbi. Four players are in the middle, including Abdi, Skhiri, Laidouni, and Drager. This might change against Australia because they will try to attack more, so Skhiri can assist attackers. Msakni, Jebali, and Slimane are playing forward.
Ryan didn’t have too many chances against France, which is why he conceded four goals. On the other hand, Behich, Rowels, Soutter, and Atkinson could do a better job and defend their goal. Mooy, Irvine, and McGee will be in the middle, where Irvine and McGee will be more forward, supporting Goodwin, Duke, and Leckie.
France is the only favorite that has a chance to win the Cup from group D. They did an amazing job against Australia, which proved why they are considered one of the strongest teams. Professionals think Denmark should be in second place, but Tunisia changed that. Australia will definitely have issues against other teams.
Tunisia vs. Australia Predictions
Tunisia might have a stronger team, but the odds are not so small on them. Australia is at +290, which isn’t so appealing for bettors, so they are more focused on a small number of goals. Most professionals think that the draw might happen, but after the first matches, Tunisia looks like a worthy opponent that might even get out of the group stage.
