Our World Cup 2022 predictions now turn the second round of fixtures inside of Group D. So far, Tunisia has drawn against Denmark and France won comfortably against Australia, so how does that reflect on our online sports betting for this fixture? Well, of the two teams France will be considered the strongest and a win for them should seal a place in the Round of 16. If Tunisia can get a result, even a draw, then this Group is blown wide open. We will be looking at all possibilities as we come to reveal our Tunisia vs France prediction. In this guide, we cover past game results, and star players, and give you the best odds on our most popular betting markets.

Our Tunisia vs France prediction: France to win.

Tunisia Preview

Tunisia’s draw against Denmark was something no World Cup predictor saw coming. The group is now wide open and a result against France will mean that it all goes down to the last day. At the start of the tournament, all World Cup betting odds will have put Tunisia as underdogs for this game, but now with a much-valued point on the board, anything is possible. Let’s not forget how much tournament experience this team gets from playing in the AFCON, which they won in 2004. In the 2021 AFCON, they finished in 8th place.

World Cup History

This is Tunisia’s sixth appearance in a World Cup. It has never been a flourishing experience for them, as they have never managed to get out of the group stages. In the last competition, they finished in 24th place but only won one game, which was against Panama. Most World Cup predictions have Tunisia achieving the same feat, but surely their win will not be against France, or will it?

Qualification and Road to the World Cup 2022

For Tunisia to get to Qatar, they had to participate in group stages that then become knockout rounds. Those winning the rounds then must face each other in the final playoff for a place in the World Cup. Here are the results of their qualifiers, which may help you to understand their form coming into this game.

Date Match Final Score
03/09/2021 (Second Round) Tunisia vs Equatorial Guinea 3-0
07/09/2021 Zambia vs Tunisia 0-2
07/10/2021 Tunisia vs Mauritania 3-0
10/10/2021 Mauritania vs Tunisia 0-0
13/11/2021 Equatorial Guinea vs Tunisia 1-0
16/11/2021 Tunisia vs Zambia 3-1
25/03/2022 (Third Round 1st Leg) Mali vs Tunisia 0-1
29/03/2022 (2nd Leg) Tunisia vs Mali 0-0

Tunisia Players to Watch

Who are the best players in the team that Tunisia can rely on to turn the game or to help shut France out to win or draw the game? Here we look at three Tunisian players that will impact the game most. You may also want to consider them with other football betting markets that are supported by Betiton. 

  • Mohamed Ali Ben Romdhane: Position: Midfield. 22 caps and 1 goal. A sturdy player and one of the best in the team. Good on passing and crossing the ball. Does more attacking than defensive work.
  • Hannibal Mejbri : Position: Midfield. 10 cap. One of the youngest players at the tournament. Very fast and technically good. He will look to make runs in this game that go through France and will draw the fouls.
  • Montassar Omar Talbi: Position: Defender. 18 caps. Another player that is relatively new to the squad but does a good job with crosses and plays out well from the box to start forward pressing.

France Preview

France won their opening match against Australia 4-1. A highly convincing performance, which we predicted it would be in our previous World Cup bets predictor for that fixture. With three points in the bag, a win over Tunisia would seal their place in the next round of the tournament. On paper, it is a win, and France should go through, but their draw against Denmark was not expected and there has already been one Cup shock, there could be more. 

World Cup History

France is the current holder of the World Cup, so that’s the reason why many football predictions are in their favour. They have won the competition twice, with the first being the 1998 World Cup. However, the winner curse struck them in 2002 when they failed to even exit the group stages and didn’t even win a single game. In the 2010 competition, their performances were just as bad. This is a common curse but will it strike again for the French national side?

Qualification and Road to the World Cup 2022

Getting to board the plane to Qatar, the French team had a very simple route to navigate. Here are the results of all their qualifiers.

Date Match Final Score
24/03/2021 France vs Ukraine 1-1
28/03/2021 Kazakhstan vs France 0-2
31/03/2021 Bosnia and Herzegovina vs France 0-1
01/09/2021 France vs Bosnia and Herzegovina 1-1
04/09/2021 Ukraine vs France 1-1
07/09/2021 France vs Finland 2-0
13/11/2021 France vs Kazakhstan 8-0
16/11/2021 Finland vs France 0-2

France Players to Watch

The depth of talent in this French side is incredible. As we have already seen in their first game, getting goals is not going to be an issue, no matter how new or old the player is. Once again, we pick our top three players for this game. No doubt the line-up will be unchanged following the Australia result.

  • Kylian Mbappe: Position: 60 caps, 28 goals, and 21 assists. Scored against Australia in the opening game and we highly expect this trend to continue.
  • Antoine Griezmann: Position: Striker. 111 caps, 42 goals, and 31 assists. He is the midfield general that manages to control games whilst being heavily involved with attacking play. Will boss the pitch with his passing ability, and pace, and will make overlapping runs to get his goals.
  • Oliver Giroud : Position: Striker. 115 caps, 51 goals, 14 assists, and 7 bookings. The player scored twice against Australia and will once again be in top form. Has good tricks and acrobatic ability even at the age of 36. Could be the Player of the Tournament.
