France deals with with Tunisia in an important clash

France already secured their spot for the knockout stage, but they will certainly not go easy with Tunisia despite securing their spot. This game is very important for Tunisia as this gives them the chance for a spot in the next round. However, even if Tunisia wins in this game, their chances still depends on the outcome of the match between Denmark and Australia.

Moreover, they also want to be in a good momentum when they enter the group stage. Their match is on November 30, 2022, at 11:00 PM (GMT+8).

Others might think that France will make things easier for Tunisia as this is almost a no-bearing game for them. France secured a spot in the knockout stage already, but they still want to win and perfect their group stage. A win in this match keep things going for France as they have the momentum with them. France is the defending champions, and they will surely prove that they can defend their title. They are currently on top of their group stage after they won their matches against Australia and Denmark.

France’s manager might do a little changes in his starting unit in this match, since this is a less important match for them. He might opt to rest some of his key players, especially Mbappe in this game. However, Mbappe expressed that he does not want to be rested in this game, and continue to play.

Tunisia sees this match as a do-or-die game

World Cup: Tunisia

Tunisia is indeed in a do-or-die situation because a loss in this game would eliminate them from the competition. However, if they were able to pull off some miracles and win, it does not guarantee a spot for them. Despite a win, they will still have to depend on the results of the match between Denmark and Australia’s match. During their campaign in the World Cup, this team remains winless after having a goalless draw against Denmark and a 1-0 loss to Australia. If they want to enter the next round, they need to win against France by two or more goals margin. They are just hoping to have a better goal scoring output in this game.

Going against the defending champions, Tunisia parades a fully fit squad, as Bechir Ben Said is finally back for Tunisia.
