Tunisia stands out as one of the most competitive African-Arab squads to vest interest in the World Cup Mundial. As the first African team to gain a World Cup match victory laced with absolute mastery of the cloak-and-dagger approach, they have successfully slithered around tougher, unsuspecting opponents who brashly underestimated them. Qatar 2022 makes it the sixth time they would feature in the FIFA World Cup tournament, Football's biggest event on the globe. In this article, we will tell you about Tunisia and her chances of making the playoffs from Group G.

With a far less superior squad on paper and European experience, Tunisia would have to prepare against an onslaught from the Danish Danes in the wake of their first group-stage encounter. With notable names like Christian Eriksen (who just recovered from injury), Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Kapser Dolberg, Daniel Vass, Simon Kjaer, and Kasper Schmeichel, the Eagles from Tunis have a 70-30 obvious disadvantage towards victory. However, as the match edges to an end, the true "dark horse" would prevail as both teams have been tagged dark horses from their respective qualifying groups.

Engaging Denmark head-to-head would be a bit risky, seeing as the opponents beat France, the World Champions home and away in the just concluded Nations League. The Danish side boasts excellent quality and would not expect to lose against Tunisia; a detail Tunisia could use to their advantage seeing how they've always punched unbelievably above their weight.

Although the Tunisian squad lacks European experience, what is lacking in European expeditions is made up for in strength and teamwork. Starman Wahbi Khaziri would be sure to guide his team to a successful campaign. Captain Youssef Mskani who is naturalized to Qatar (by club football) would do all he can to make his teammates feel at home as quickly as possible.

For this match, we predict that Tunisia would, as usual, slither around their Danish counterparts in an attempt to pick a low-scoring victory the total number of match goals would be strictly greater than two for 2.10 odds.

A crucial fixture to the Tunisians, the Socceroos will try to leverage the fact that the Carthage Eagles may at this stage of the competition appear to be on their way out of the competition. However, the Aussies may not have fared better; or to put the words to test, may have fared worse. The Australian squad enjoys collective play, but lacks individual brilliance and as such may not be able to escape the stealthy ambush of the Tunisians.

Another daunting factor in this contest is the naivety of the Australian defense. With only goalkeeper Mat Ryan possessing European experience, this match looks like a definite win for the Tunisians. Since the likelihood for the Aussies to lose against the French and the Danish Dames is also definite, they would aim to capitalize on this fixture as a three-point leeway. If the Carthage Eagles succeed in wearing the Aussies out in the first 60 minutes, it should be a pretty easy win, with a handful of goals.

For this duel, we predict Tunisian's style of play to overwhelm the 'Aussie Spirit' andprobably a total of three goals i.e. Betking offers 2.45 odds on Over 2.5 goals.

For the final fixture of the group stage, Les Blues (The Blues) would face off against Tunisia. Whereas to the French, this should be a breezy walkover, but to the Tunisians, it would be a fight to the death as they would pit themselves against the best team in the group, desperate to gallantly defy the gargantuan odds stacked against them.

The French team, ladened with A-list players from the defense to the attacking front would try to outclass, outplay, and outperform the Australians as Didier Deschamps would literally fold his arms, hoping to his team annihilate the Tunisian boys who would have by this point realized that victory would cost an arm and a leg.

Kylian's Mbappe speed and skill, Karim Benzema's Goal Poaching proficiency, and other world-class personalities would leave the Tunisians grateful if they do not concede more goals than necessary.

For this fixture, France's goal pursuit would make us predict heavy goal density and that there would be Over 2.5 Match goals for 1.88 odds at bet365.

Betking offers odds of 3.80 for Tunisia to qualify from the group. Quite fair since the stakes are high in this group. A lot of team willpower must be shown and sacrificial heroics must be on constant display to make it out despite the heavy presence of France and Denmark, who are heavily tipped to both qualify from the group. Regardless, Tunisia can defeat Australia and Denmark, leaving the contest against France as the only probable avenue for dropped points in the group. This is why we say that 3.80 odds is fair.

One of the most outstanding squad members of the Tunisian squad favored by bookmakers to score freely is Khazri Wahbi who is tipped at 5.50 odds (Betking) as the potential best goalscorer from the Tunisian team.

A citizen of France by birth, Khazri dons the Tunisia jersey at the international level as captain of the Tunisia national squad. Having over 70 matches in which he has scored 24 goals for his side since 2013, he has represented Tunisia at five Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournaments and the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

The next on the team's goal-scoring list after Khazri Wahbi is Jaziri Seifeddine (7.50 odds), winner of the 2021 FIFA Arab Golden Boot and Zamalek Star. Mskani Youssef and Sliti Naim (8.00 odds) would also be considered prolific scorers for the team.

Betking also proffers odds of 7.03 for Tunisia to emerge as the Best African Team of the Tournament. A category in which Senegal leads with 2.81 odds, Morocco follows with 3.51 odds, Ghana (4.52 odds), and Cameroun with 6.02 odds.

The Tunisian team, unlike any other African team, seems like an easy team to defeat, but the squad is laced with modest players who can pack a punch to unsuspecting opponents on the pitch. The qualifiers showed a team defeating Zambia and Mali to earn the only African-Arab seat on the African table in the Mundial; a feat Egypt, Algeria, and the likes failed to attain.

Irrespective of all these, Tunisia's group domination is given (at Betking) at odds of around 16.70 and 3.77 odds to be among the Top 2 countries to make it into the next round. Therefore, we predict France will win Group D while Tunisia will place second.

Our prediction: France to win Group D, and Tunisia to finish second for 3.77 odds
