The Eagles of Carthage are yet to score at the World Cup and are on the verge of being eliminated.

They performed well in their opening match against Denmark before being beaten by Australia.

France, meanwhile, are looking for three wins out of three after impressive victories over the Aussies and Denmark.

Kylian Mbappe was the inspiration for those two wins and it remains to be seen if he will be risked for this win.

SunSport takes a look at what to expect from Tunisia v France, including our result prediction.


How are you?

Tunisia: The North Africans got off to a promising start in the opening game against Denmark, where they were the better team at 0-0.

But they failed to recover after a Mitchell Duke header and suffered a 1-0 loss in their second game against Australia.

France: Les Bleus made a mark in their opening game after beating Australia 4-1 from behind.

A brace from Kylian Mbappe then inspired a 2-1 win over Denmark, her first against the Danes in four tries.

Any injuries to worry about?

Tunisia: The Tunisians are not worried about injury and second-choice goalkeeper Bechir Ben Said is fully fit again.

France: where to start

Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kante were among a number of veteran internationals who were ruled out before the start of the tournament.

Karim Benzema is on holiday in Reunion Island and reports he could make a surprise return to the squad before the end of the tournament as he appears way over the target.

Theo Hernandez is France’s only left-back after brother Lucas was injured.

Eduardo Camavinga could therefore step in for that game if Deschamps are looking to rest the AC Milan man.

Second-choice goalkeeper Alphonse Areola is a doubt for a game he may have in the starting XI as he has a back problem.

who to watch

Tunisia: Ferencvaros star Aissa Laidouni has impressed in Tunisia’s midfield and ensured they more than matched their Danish and Australian counterparts in the first two games.

France: It’s difficult to look past Mbappe.

The PSG man has three goals in two games and despite the possibility that he will be rested for the game, it is claimed he is determined to play from the start.


If Australia beat Denmark in the other Group D game, Tunisia is out.

In the event of a draw, Tunisia can qualify by beating France.

If Denmark beats Australia, Tunisia must beat France by a bigger margin.

If Tunisia don’t manage to beat France, they are eliminated regardless of other results.

France have already qualified and know that avoiding defeat will be enough to secure first place in Group D.

Should France lose, Australia can top the group with a win over Denmark, but it will require a seven-goal swing.

What is the head-to-head race?

The teams have only met once in the competition, Tunisia winning 2-1 at the 1971 Mediterranean Games.

They have played four friendlies since then, with France winning two and drawing two.

Their last meeting was a 1-1 draw in a friendly in Rades, Tunisia in 2010.
