Gambia leads the group, but Tunisia is only a point behind in third place.
This sets the stage for one of the most intense matches of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations tonight.
For the first time in their history, Gambia and Tunisia will meet.
As a result, the game is expected to spark a fresh rivalry between two clubs vying for a playoff position in the current competition.
In this match, the key question is who will advance to the quarterfinals.
To get a sense of how these teams will likely perform today, read our analysis below.
Tunisia could have made it 5-0 against Mauritania in the previous round had it not been for a missed penalty in the 90th minute that struck the woodwork.
Wahbi Khazri, the captain, scored twice in the encounter. Khazri doubled the lead in that game with his second goal, and he tripled it four minutes after the hour mark.
He allegedly won man of the match and is set to participate in the final group stage encounter.
Gambia, on the other hand, has only scored one goal in each of its first two matches.
Due to a lack of firepower on the Gambian side, we expect Tunisia to take the lead at any time throughout the game.
Gambia’s main advantage in this match is a pretty strong defense that has only improved since the AFCON in 2022.
This will be Gambia’s first meeting with Tunisia, so the game will be tense in the sense that it will be a tight duel. In this match, we expect one side to score or no goals at all.
