Why Tunisia is a good play versus France
The Tunisians failed big time in their final World Cup prep, losing to Brazil 5-1, but that performance doesn’t matter. The performances that do matter shows the Tunisians drawing 0-0 versus Denmark, a +2800 choice before the World Cup to win, and losing by a single goal to Australia.
Bottom line? Tunisia played best versus their top competition, the Danes. The set up in this Wednesday match, no doubt, could lead to at least another draw performance versus a French team that has no reason to dominate the Tunisians.

Why France is a good play versus Tunisia
France won’t play their top players like Kylian Mbappe for long, but it may not matter. The French entered the tournament the deepest team on paper.
So even if France takes Mbappe, Dembele, Giroud, and Griezmann out early, they will still have more attacking power than Tunisia. Tunisia is up against it no matter who steps onto the pitch for France. That’s how deep the French are.

Final Betting Analysis: Tunisia vs France
France has scored 6 goals and ended a losing streak to Denmark, which is why the French have become the team to beat at this year’s World Cup.
But although France can beat Tunisia, and they can beat them by multiple goals, the French understand that resting players for the knockout stage is the most important goal.
So, yes, the French will pull their starters and, yes, players like Thurman and Coman could dominate Tunisia, but France may not even play their second string players. The French require Thurman and Coman to maintain their excellent form.
So France will play their third string players, send their entire bench to the pitch, before putting Thurman and Coman in harms way. We should also expect France to play as conservative as possible to maintain their energy level for the knockout stage match.
All signs point to a draw. Tunisia isn’t good enough to score a goal versus France while the French will play ultra-conservative in their final group stage match to prevent any possible injuries.
