Tunisia vs Mali Today’s Football Tips
Tunisia face Mali for this second day of Group E CAN 2019 and it will have to rectify the shot in order not to see his dreams of qualifying in the 8th finals evaporate. Indeed, the Tunisians badly started the CAN and conceded the draw against Angola for their entry in the competition. Unable to do better than a 1-1, Tunisia has put itself in a delicate position for the rest of the group phase. Quarter finalists in 2015 and 2017, Tunisia was keen to start in the best way competition against modest Angolans. But nothing happened as expected and despite a clear domination early in the game, which resulted in a penalty obtained in the 34th minute by Sliti and converted by Msakni, Tunisians then dropped intensity. Angola did not ask so much and was able to deploy his game, patiently building his actions. But it was a mistake by Tunisian goalkeeper Ben Mustapha, who allowed Angola to return to the score and hold this draw until the end of 90 minutes. Because at the end of the match, it’s down to Tunisia that has done the round back to keep this draw. It will therefore be much better to hope to qualify in the 8th finals. Because opposite is the Mali that presents itself and the Malians are in full form. Authors of a very serious and spectacular entry, the Malians won 4-1 against Mauritania who participated in the first CAN in its history. Leading 2-0 at half-time, Mali then took off with a 3rd goal in the 55th minute. Despite a penalty El Hacen for Mauritania, which was also the first goal in the history of Mauritania in Africa Cup of Nations, Malians have resumed the sea by scoring a fourth and last goal. A large success that allows the Malians to occupy the first place in this group E. In case of victory against Tunisia, Mali would be assured of participating in the 8th finals. A beautiful goal that should motivate the Malians above all else. There will therefore be great danger for Tunisia.
