Tunisia vs France Prediction

Tunisia 1-3 France

The Tunisia defense will not be able to contain both Kylian Mbappé and Karim Benzema in this contest. They conceded five goals against Belgium in 2018 and we could see a similar result in this contest against France. Back Les Bleus to put on a dominant performance to close out Group D before the Round of 16.

Tunisia vs France Betting Tips

There will be high expectations for the French national team to repeat their performance from 2018, but history is not on their side. There has not been a nation to win back-to-back titles since 1962 when Brazil lifted the cup four years after they won in 1958.

One of the biggest holes for the French will be in the midfield where they will be missing Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kanté, two of the best players from the 2018 World Cup. This will now force youngsters Eduardo Camavinga and Aurélien Tchouaméni to man the midfield and play the connecting role between the backline and the attack.

France arguably has one of the best-attacking duos at the tournament with Mbappé and Benzema with a lot of talent on their bench, as well. Since they play in a 5-2-1-2 formation, the likes of Ousmane Dembélé and Kingsley Coman might not make the starting lineup but will be difference-makers as substitutes.

This is the first time in World Cup history that each team will be allowed five subs instead of three.

It will be a tough test for Tunisia to contain the French attack and since Les Bleus play with five in the back, scoring goals against them will also come at a premium. The two wing backs for France will join the attack when pushing forward, and they will look to attack on the wings in this tournament.

According to the World Cup Group D odds, this will be France’s easiest match in the group stage, and there should be plenty of goals in this contest. Tunisia scored in every game they played in the group in 2018, which included matches against England and Belgium.

There is a possibility that France rotates their lineup depending on where they stand in the group heading into this game but even if they do, they have the talent in their squad to score plenty of goals. Their attacking style of play will give Tunisia trouble and since they push up the field so much, they could be exposed on the counterattack, as well.

Tunisia can definitely get on the scoresheet in this game, but I’m confident France can hit the Over 2.5 goals by themselves in this match.
