Goals on one end
Tunisia won the first leg 2-0 and should be in contention for a second victory over Zambia in this fixture. While two out of three previous meetings had goals on both ends, this fixture creates a different atmosphere where both teams have a similar ambition. The two teams stand a chance of qualifying for the next World Cup if they win this game. Because of that, we expect a defensive approach to this fixture.
The reverse encounter had two goals in favour of Tunisia. We expect a similar scoreline or even lower in the return leg. Tunisia boasts the best defensive in Group B of CAF WCQ having leaked only one goal. Zambia has leaked six goals. These teams have scored 8 and 7 goals respectively. Moreover, Zambia's best performance in the competition has been away from home, a record they should fight to maintain in this fixture. A tough encounter in the last group stage fixture should yield fewer than three goals.
Draw at half-time
Our third prediction for this match settles on a draw at half-time. Only one goal was scored in the reverse fixture back in September. A lot has happened since then. And with both sides fighting for a place in the next World Cup, we expect a tough duel in the first-half to end without a breakthrough.

Match Preview: Tunisia and Zambia Locked in a World Cup Qualifier Battle
Tunisia has 10 points in five games, three more than Zambia’s seven points in as many games. It means that only one game stands between these teams. This fixture could title the tables against the hosts or push them further in their quest for a place in the next World Cup. Noting that Tunisia recorded 2W and 1D against Zambia in the last three meetings, the hosts are the presumed favourites in this game. They come to this game with a 1-0 defeat against Equatorial Guinea while Zambia bagged a 4-nil victory against Mauritania in the last game. The visiting team hopes to build on that emphatic victory to prevent a second defeat against Tunisia. It is why we have steered clear of an outright bet in this matchup.
