Zimbabwe lock horns with Tunisia for the last group games in Group B of the Africa Cup of Nations 2017 edition.
Zimbabwe suffered a 2-0 loss in their match day 2 clash with Senegal. The warriors were unable to curtail the attacking prowess of Senegal as they succumb to a 2-0 loss. Moreover, Zimbabwe sits bottom of the Group log, and will need but victory to at least get a hope of a quarter final berth.
Tunisia won Algeria in a North African group b affair on match day 2. The Cartage eagles forced 2 second half goals, and conceded late in the same half as they leaped pass Algeria on Thursday. Moreover, Tunisia sits 2nd on the Group B log, and will be in need of at least a point for a hopeful place in the next phase.

Both teams will be meeting each other for the first time. Zimbabwe is only making her 3rd Africa Cup of Nation appearance, while Tunisia is appearing in her 13th consecutive AFCON edition, and 18th in general.
Zimbabwe vs Tunisia: Prediction
Zimbabwe failed to go past the group stage in her first 2 appearance, a feat the warriors will lung to surpass in the on-going edition in Gabon. On the other hand, Tunisia have also failed to surpass the Quarter-final since they hosted and won in 2004. Therefore, both teams have a hidden push that will bring out the best and a potential electrifying game.
Regardless of the aforementioned drive, Zimbabwe have a slim chance to victory. Therefore, I will predict 2-0 victory for Tunisia.
