Our Best Picks for Gambia vs Tunisia AFCON 2022 Fixture
Gambia and Tunisia will meet for the first time in their history. As a result, the game is expected to create a new rivalry between two teams currently battling for a playoff spot in the ongoing tournament. The big question in this fixture is which side will progress to the quarterfinals. Read our analysis below to get an idea on how these teams will likely perform on matchday.
Tunisia to score first 1/2 (1.50)
Tunisia could have made it 5-0 against Mauritania in the last game if not for a 90th minute missed penalty that hit the woodwork. It was a match that saw captain Wahbi Khazri score twice. Khazri scored the second goal to double the advantage in that fixture and tripled the lead four minutes after the hour-mark. Ostensibly, he bagged man of the match and is expected to play in this last group stage fixture. On the other hand, Gambia has scored one goal in each of their first two games. Lack of firepower on the Gambian side is why we are tipping Tunisian’s to go ahead any minute in this game.
Both teams to Score: No @ 53/100
The Biggest advantage for Gambia in this fixture is a relatively solid defence that has only got better in the 2022 AFCON. This will be the first meeting between Gambia and Tunisia, so the game will be a little tense in as much as it will be a tough duel. We expect goals on one side or no goal at all in this fixture.

Gambia vs Tunisia AFCON 2022 Match Preview, Team News and Expected Lineups
Gambia is top of Group F table of the 2022 AFCON tournament. However, they may have to relinquish that position should they lose this fixture against Tunisia. Tunisians overcame a troubled start to the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations after a controversial loss to Mali in a match that was ended prematurely. However, they came back stronger to bag a 4-nil victory in the second game of the tournament. Tunisia’s 4-0 win over Mauritania is one of the best scoreline for a winning side in the 2022 AFCON. But the question is can they carry on with that momentum in this last group stage fixture?
The fact that this is the last group stage fixture and that only a point separates these teams means we should be ready for a tough duel. It is also the first encounter, so the two teams will equally be locked in a supremacy battle.
Gambia kicked off the tournament with a narrow 1-0 victory over Mauritania but settled for a 1-1 draw with Mali in the second game. A draw against Mali, one of the toughest teams in the competition, means Gambia can stage a spirited fight in this last game against Tunisia. Let’s see how both sides will lineup for the important match.
Gambia predicted lineup: Jobe, Touray, Colley, Sundberg, Gomez, Adams, Jallow, Marreh, Bobb, Barrow and Ceesay.
