-----------------------------------

Mauritania and Tunisia woll meet for the second straight game this Sunday when they square off at the Stade Olympique. The hosts will be looking to exact revenge on the visitors who cruised to a comfortable 3-0 victory in the reverse fixture on Thursday.

 

Mauritania form (all competitions): LWWLLL

Mauritania have endured an underwhelming start to their quest for a first-ever World Cup appearance and currently find themselves rooted to the bottom of Group B. After booking their place in the 2021 Arab Cup courtesy of a 2-0 victory over Yemen, Corentin Martins's men suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Zambia on September 3. This was followed by a somewhat disappointing 1-0 loss to Equatorial Guinea four days later, when Iban Salvador scored the winner from the penalty spot shortly before the hour mark. Mauritania failed to end their dry spell last time out as group favourites Tunisia eased past them courtesy of a 3-0 victory at the Stade Olympique de Rades last Thursday. The Eagles of Carthage went into half time with a two-goal lead through Ellyes Skhiri and Wahbi Khazri before Seifeddine Jaziri completed the rout in the 86th minute. While this was a third defeat on the trot for the Al-Murabitun, it was Tunisia's fourth consecutive win since a 2-0 loss to Algeria when they faced off in a friendly tie back in June.

 

Tunisia form (all competitions): WLWWWW

Mondher Kebaier's men, in stark contrast, have enjoyed a stellar run in their quest for a sixth World Cup appearance as they currently lead the way in Group B with nine points from a possible nine. This is owing to the superb job done at both ends of the pitch as they have netted the second-most goals with eight and are yet to concede at the other end of the pitch. The North African side head into Sunday's game on a run of seven wins from their last eight games in all competitions, while they are unbeaten in all but one one of their most recent 16 outings since 2019. Tunisia, who became the first African side to win a World Cup game courtesy of a 2-0 win over Mexico back in 1978, will fancy their chances of completing a group double over an out-of-sorts Mauritania side who have shipped six goals in their opening three games.

 

Betting Verdict:

While Mauritania will look to arrest their slump in form and pick up their first points in the qualifiers, they face a free-scoring Tunisia side who are yet to concede a goal in the qualifiers. The Eagles of Carthage cruised to a comfortable victory when the sides met on Thursday and we anticipate a repeat of the same this weekend given the gulf in class and quality between the two sides.
