TUN vs MAU: Match Prediction And Preview

On Match Day 3 of the FIFA World Cup 2022 African qualifiers Round two, Tunisia hosts Mauritania in a Group B match. The two sides are at the group's opposite ends. Tunisia leads the group with two wins in a row and six points, while Mauritania has yet to score in round two of qualification, having lost two games in a row.

Tunisia enters the match with 3-0 and 2-0 victories over Equatorial Guinea and Zambia, respectively. Mondher Kebaier's team has been good defensively in recent weeks, keeping four clean sheets in five games. Tunisia also came into the match on a three-game winning streak.

Mauritania has lost both of its opening group matches, 2-1 to Zambia and 1-0 to Equatorial Guinea, respectively. They have a dreadful away record going into this game. In all competitions, Mauritania has only won one of their last twelve away matches. The visitors have a dreadful home-and-away record against the hosts. Mauritania has never beaten Tunisia. Tunisia has won 10 games against Mauritania, while the other three games have ended in draws. Corentin Martins' team faces an uphill battle against Tunisia, given their one-sided head-to-head record against them.

MAJOR POINTS:

• Tunisia has won three games in a row.

• Mauritania has lost its last two games.

• In their last five matches, Tunisia have preserved four clean sheets.

• In all competitions, Mauritania has only won one of their last twelve away matches.

• Tunisia has won six of their previous seven matches in all competitions.

SUMMARY:

Tunisia has had a good run of form in recent games, losing only a couple of times. They have a strong defensive record compared to Mauritania's patchy record. Tunisia will easily win this match, in my opinion.

Kickoff Time: The match will be played tomorrow at 8:00 PM Nigerian and UK time.
