Tunisia vs England Prediction & Betting tips
Four years ago, England and Italy were embarrassed at the World Cup in Brazil in the group stage and have failed to Uruguay and Costa Rica. After only one point win, the motherland of football adopted and wanted to rehabilitate this two years later at the European Championships in France. But it got even worse. In the second round, the Three Lions failed sensationally to Iceland and thus provided for one of the biggest surprises of recent years. In 2018, the British are even hotter for the finals and they want to prove once again their class on the big stage.
As the only nation on the island, they take part in Russia, and in group G, progress is actually an obligation. Although Belgium is a major competitor, Panama and Tunisia should be beatable counterparts. At the start England fight against the North Africans from Tunisia and bet on a victory of Gareth Southgate are the only correct consideration. We go a step further and even risk a tip on the handicap (-1.5), which means that the odds for an English win over Tunisia are even higher.
Tunisia, like all other African representatives, should not be taken lightly. In qualifying, they put themselves at the last peg in front of the Republic of Congo, reaching the fifth European Championship finals in the history of the country. Now for the first time the entry into the knockout phase is desired. Probably the almost pre-decisive duel is the first game against England. That’s why Tunisia also prepared for the match against the Three Lions.
All three last Test matches took place against other European representatives. Tunisia won 2: 2 against Portugal and Turkey. Against Spain, the squad of coach Nabil Maaloul narrowly defeated 0-1. Most professionals are under contract with clubs in Africa, and many players also earn their money in France. Unlike other African nations, Tunisia does not have a big superstar (Egypt with Salah, Morocco with Benatia). This does not necessarily have to be a disadvantage and makes the underdog in some ways unpredictable and dangerous against England.
England are hot, England is ready and England are in a good mood – that much can be said even before the tournament starts of the Three Lions. The troop of Gareth Southgate has a huge advantage in any case. All players from the squad are under contract in the Premier League and know each other well. Some even play in the same club and the playing style of all players is very similar. Maybe that’s why the troupe harmonizes so well in the recent past. The hope for a strong World Cup in their own country after the weak appearances lately in the big tournaments big.
After a sovereign qualifier (26 points out of ten games), the results in the test matches were neat. England have been unbeaten in ten matches and only three goals conceded during this period are an impressive statement. At the beginning of July, two tests were held, in which Nigeria were defeated 2-1 and Costa Rica 2-0 – after all, both nations are also World Cup participants. A solid defensive and in attack a formidable Harry Kane – this mix is promising and should at least extend to Tunisia for the opening victory.
