Tunisia vs Australia Prediction & Pick

These teams enter Saturday with completely opposite momentums. Tunisia came close to pulling off a big upset against Denmark and secured a point in a game many people assumed they'd drop. On the other side, Australia fell apart on defense and failed to showcase much improvement since 2018.

I like Tunisia to come out on top here. It drew 9 corners in its opening match and had several scoring chances against Denmark. Reports claim there was also nearly 30,000 Tunisia fans cheering on their favorite team on Tuesday. Having that level of crowd support is massive when playing at a neutral site.

Final Score Prediction: Tunisia: 2 | Australia: 1

Tunisia vs Australia Best Bet

It's worth noting Australia head coach Graham Arnold said after the opening loss that France was "bigger and faster and stronger" than his squad. That is not a great sentiment heading into a match against a physical Tunisia squad. The blueprint has been set as to how to beat the Australians and that is through tough tackles and crisp passes. Look for Tunisia to be well-prepared on Saturday.

Bet: Tunisia ML (+110)
