Tunisia vs Australia World Cup 2022 Prediction
Tunisia played really well in their opening game against Denmark, securing a point, but will be looking to go one better against Australia. The Aussies started well against France but ended up losing the game 4-1 and are now in danger of becoming Group D's whipping boys.
Tunisia to Win
We're backing Tunisia to win following the performances of both teams on matchday 1. Tunisia could have beaten Denmark on the day but a draw was a fair result while Australia ended up getting hammered 4-1 by France despite taking an early lead. Tunisia secured a 2-0 win in their one and only previous encounter with Australia back in 2005 and we expect history to repeat itself when the pair lock horns in Qatar, but with more goals on show.
Over 2.5 Goals
Tunisia failed to score in their opening game and managed to keep a clean sheet, though, both they and Denmark created plenty of chances to score and if it hadn;t been for some excellent goalkeeping at both ends of the pitch, the game could have ended 2-2. Two of Tunisia's last four outings have produced over 2.5 goals, including a 5-1 defeat against Brazil and a 3-0 win over Japan, while three of Australia's last six international matches have witnessed at least three goals scored.

- Tunisia odds: 13/11 (2.18)
- Draw odds: 23/10 (3.30)
- Australia odds: 14/5 (3.80)

In terms of goals, it's clear that the bookies don't expect to see many of them since the odds on under 2.5 total goals are 11/17 (1.65), which implies a probability of 60.7% for this betting market. Contrary to that, the average odds on over 2.5 total goals are 29/20 (2.45), which is equal to a 40.8% probability.
Lastly, if you want to bet on some of the highest odds for this match, you should consider correct score. According to average odds, the most likely correct scores for this game are 0-0, 1-1, and 1-0 to Tunisia.
Who Will Win the Battle of the Underdogs in Group D?
Tunisia will have been very pleased with the way they approached their opening game against Denmark. The North African side took the game to their more illustrious opponents and although the game ended goalless, it could have easily produced a win for either side and a draw was the right result. Having said that, only a win will really do for Tunisia in this game if they want to progress any further in Qatar as Australia are the weakest team in the group and there is every chance that Denmark will beat them on matchday 3, so, realistically, Tunisia need to secure all 3pts before they face France.
Tunisia Predicted Lineup:
Dahmen – Bronn, Meriah, Talbi – Drager, Skhiri, Laidouni, Abdi – Khazri, Jebali, Msakni
What a start Australia made to the World Cup, going up 1-0 against the World Champions. However, France took control of the game after that setback and ended up cruising to a 4-1 win and it easily could have been 5 or 6 at the final whistle. Australia should see more of the ball against Tunisia and have to believe they can win the game but it was always going to be tough for the Aussies to escape Group D given the draw and the fact they lack star quality these days.
Australia Predicted Lineup:
Ryan – Atkinson, Souttar, Rowles, Behich – Mooy – Leckie, Irvine, McGree, Goodwin – Duke
