Given the super strong defensive displays both teams have put up on Friday, we would not be surprised to witness a goalless draw when they take on each other at Allianz Riviera. It’s the stern defensive line which has helped Tunisia dominate the Group A of the final round in the African QC Qualification zone. The Carthage Eagles have only shipped four goals in six matches en route to topping the group with 14 out of possible 18 points (the opposition, though, included the names of Congo DR, Libya and Guinea).

Los Ticos did not have many troubles on their way towards booking tickets for Russia either s they finished second comfortable in the CONCACAF Zone qualifiers (behind Mexico). Costa Rica play ultra-defensive football with five men in the back line and Real Madrid’s Keylor Navas between the posts. Oscar Ramirez’s main strategy included counter attacks and Marco Urena has just bagged a goal from one against Scotland on Friday (0-1 victory for Los Ticos).

Tunisia made it two games on the bounce without conceding a single goal when they dispatched Iran 1-0 on Friday. Rennes’ Wahbi Khazri is the team’s main star and he could cause some threat to Costa Rican goal after a strong campaign he has had in Ligue 1 this term.

Tunisia vs Costa Rica: Prediction

Teams have a similar quality and it will be very hard to make the difference on Tuesday. Since both sides heavily rely on the defense, the Under 2.5 goals FT bet is a genuine banker at 1.70 odds.

Braver tipsters can even try with the goalless draw at 8.00.
