mauritania vs tunisia Head to Head:

Tunisia have a pleasing recent record against Mauritania, as they’ve won four of the last five renewals of this fixture. That said, when the pair last met (2016), they drew 0-0.

mauritania vs tunisia Tip Reason:

It was a disappointing first outing for Mauritania, who were thumped by an attacking Mali side on match-day one, though the minnows bounced back last time out, as they held Angola to a 1-1 draw. That point has allowed Corentin Martins da Silva’s men to go into the third and final group game with hope. They may have picked up their first point of the tournament last time out, though it’s fair to say that Mauritania have struggled to make their mark in Egypt. Going forward, although they did score against Mali on match-day one, their efforts have been underwhelming. The fact that they failed to hit the target and posted just 0.51 expected goals for against Angola last time out was particularly disappointing. In addition to looking rather weak going forward, Mauritania haven’t exactly sparkled at the back. We shouldn’t read too much into their clean sheet last time out, as they came up against an Angolan attack that didn’t offer much, while they were cut apart on a regular basis during their first match. The Tunisians haven’t been great going forward but having scored in each of their opening two matches in Egypt, they’ll fancy themselves to find the net against a rear-guard that was easily bowled over by Mali. However, we cannot ignore the fact that Tunisia have lacked creativity. First time out, Alain Giresse’s men posted a modest 1.17 expected goals for, though they only mustered two shots on target. Last time out, it looked as though Tunisia’s forward-line had regressed, as they created only 0.42 expected goals for. To be quite honest, had Wahbi Khazri’s free-kick not taken a huge deflection, Tunisia would’ve left New Suez Stadium having failed to get on the score-sheet. If they can repeat their match-day one efforts, then Tunisia ought to get the better of a limited Mauritania side, though we shouldn’t expect Aigles de Carthage to win with too much ease. In the betting, ‘Tunisia to Win & Under 2.5 Goals’ looks a solid option at the current prices. Martins da Silva’s men haven’t done enough to suggest that they can seriously trouble the Tunisians, who despite conceding, gave little away against a strong Mali side. That said, Mauritania aren’t facing the toughest of attacks, so they ought to keep the score-line respectable.
