Tunisia vs Mali
Africa – World Cup Qualification
Date: Tuesday, 29 March 2022
Kick-off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Stade Olympique Hammadi Agrebi.
The second-leg of African Playoffs for the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers will see Tunisia host Mali in their second duel at the Stade Olympique Hammadi Agrebi on Tuesday evening.
Tunisia began their WC qualification run with 3 consecutive wins while maintaining a clean sheet on all of those games. They then suffered a brief scare, playing out a goal-less draw against Mauritania and then losing to Equatorial Guinea before beating Zambia 3-1 in their final group game.
The Carthage Eagles went a quarter-final exit from the Africa Cup of Nations against 1-0 loss to Burkina Faso. They will be targeting back to back World Cup appearances but will be hoping to perform better than they did in the last edition, where they exited in the group stages.
Mali have never qualified for the World Cup but they however, made major strides in the football world as of late and will be looking to make their debut in Qatar this year. They had a 100% winning record in the group stages barring a draw, and had conceded a total of just one goal on the way.
The visitors went exit from Africa Cup of Nations dreams after suffering a penalty shootout against Equatorial Guinea by 1-0. Mali went unbeaten in their 6 games, winning their World Cup campaign group by landslide.
Tunisia vs Mali Head-to-head (h2h)

- Two of their last three wins had come for a 1-0 scoreline.
Tunisia vs Mali Prediction
Tunisia lost 4 of their past 6 overall fixtures, while winning 9 of the last 11 games played on road. Furthermore, their h2h stats are pretty meagre against this rival.
Mali has been currently on a 5-game unbeaten run on road with 3 straight wins.
They have been tremendous on this World Cup campaign winning 5 of their 6 games and drawing the other. They managed to keep a clean sheet in all 6 games while scoring 11 goals.
By the looks of things, Mali will be the one coming out of this as they are on a good form as of late. Also, after their first-leg gets over, a possible lead in hand can also be expected.
