Tunisia vs England Betting Tip
Tunisia vs England | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
Like always Three Lions are coming to the World Cup, with a dream of reaching the title once again. And this time, that might be possible, since they have an excellent team, well balanced in all areas. Tunisia, however, is not in that position, and them qualifying here is a superb achievement. They crave to make some sort of sensation and grab the second spot in Group G.
We already mention that first two places in this assembly are going to be decided between England and Belgium. It means that Albion needs to win this one and that this victory has to have a high margin. Tunisia will try to defend, and wait for chances from the counter-attacks. They are well aware of the difference in quality, but that is not always crucial in World Cup matches.
Now, we have to say right from the start that Tunisia is one solid team, but they had a lot of luck in the qualifications. The group which they eventually won, was by far the easiest one, having them DR Congo, Libya, and Guinea involved. It is highly doubtful whether would they reach Russia in some other company. The head coach Nabil Maaloul has many players from the French leagues in his team, and most of these guys didn’t pass the selection in this Europan country and then decided to seek their chance to play international football in Tunisia. Most prominent name you can find here is Wahbi Khazri, Rennes’ midfielder. Midfield is, in fact, the best part of the team. It is filled with players from the French Ligue 1, who are very young and talented. They tend to keep the ball in their possession, preventing the rival from getting it, and imposing his own tempo and pace.
Each and every time they go to the World Cup, England’s team is under a heavy pressure created by the expectations back home. And in the majority of cases, they do not have the strength to deal with it. This time, Gareth Southgate created one strong and competitive team, who relies on hard defense and the possession of the ball. It is something which was not so characteristic for the Albion in the past times. The majority of matches played in these qualifications and friendly ones finished with them keeping the clean sheets or with less than three goals in the end. For example in ten games of the qualifiers, goal difference they had was 18-3. Key players are Tottenham’s duo Dele Alli and Harry Kane who are orchestrating the offensive part of England’s game. These two guys have been fantastic in the national team, and largely because of them, this assembly was so dominant in the qualifying process.
