Good-humored fans, unfamiliar sounds from the stands by European standards and, above all, good defensive rows - all of this characterizes the Africa Cup 2022 || | 437 in Kamerun bislang aus. Speziell der letzte Punkt fiel an den ersten Spieltagen ganz extrem auf. In fünf der sechs absolvierten Matches bis Mittwochmorgen fiel gerade mal ein Tor. Bereits fünfmal konnte sich somit eine Mannschaft mit dem knappsten aller Ergebnisse durchsetzen. Findet dieser Trend auch am Donnerstag eine Fortsetzung?

Let's look before the first game of Group F between Tunisia and Mali on the odds, then again it seems anything but improbable that few goals will be scored. For over 2.5, the Bet365 app for example, quotations of 2.87 in the top are offered. Goal fireworks are by no means to be expected, especially on the first match days of a group stage.

In addition, before the game Tunisia against Mali, the prognosis must take into account that two teams are on an equal footing and that the bookmakers also find it difficult to name a favorite. This in turn leads to almost even odds on the three-way market, with very slight advantages for the North Africans, who however no longer have the player potential of past days. | || 533

Tunisia Tunisia - statistics & current form

With a total of five World Cup participations, the Tunisian national team is one of the most successful selection teams in all of Africa in this regard. On the home continent, i.e. as part of the Africa Cup, the Eagles of Carthage have so far only rarely been able to confirm this. The North Africans celebrated the only title win in their own country in 2004, the following eight editions only made it to the semi-finals once - in 2019, when they then lost just 0: 1 to the eventual winner from Senegal.

Many players who took part in the tournament three years ago are now aiming for the next deep run at the African Championship. The endeavor will be difficult this time, especially since the Tunisians actually had to tremble in qualifying until the last match day. After a defeat against the direct competitor Equatorial Guinea, the final 3-1 victory against Zambia in mid-November was sorely necessary to secure the ticket for the finals at all.

Even the Tunisian defense knows how to convince

The fact that the dress rehearsal at the Arab Cup in December makes hope for a positive course of the tournament gives hope went optimally. Only the final against the strong Algerians was lost after extra time with 0-2.

The showpiece of the team of coach Mondher Kebaier is undoubtedly the defensive, which had to swallow eleven goals in 17 international matches in the calendar year 2021. In nine of the 17 matches mentioned, there was even a defensive zero, which can sometimes be used as an argument to place a tip on under-goals or the "BTS - No" between Tunisia and Mali.

Apart from that, it should also be mentioned that not even half of all goals were conceded in the first 45 minutes. Especially in the first round, the North Africans are defensively very concentrated. It is quite possible that this impression will be confirmed on Wednesday noon, especially of course against the background that the Eagles of Carthage, the in their last nine participations only failed twice in the preliminary round, do not want to start the tournament with a defeat.

Expected formation of Tunisia:

Mustapha; Drager, Talbi, Bronn, Maaloul; Slimane, Skhiri; Sliti, Mejbri, Jaziri; Khazri

Mali Mali - statistics & current form

The Malian national soccer team has never won the African Cup. The best placement was a second place when we first participated in 1972. Nevertheless, the eagles are by no means to be underestimated. This is underlined by the two third places in 2012 and 2013. Even ten years later, the world rankings 53. Put together a squad that allows you to dream of the quarter-finals or even the semi-finals.

The line-up is led by the two defensive midfielders Haidara (RB Leipzig) and Bissouma (Brighton), who are not only in the European top -Leagues earn their money, but also as clearers in front of the defense are mainly responsible for the fact that the team of the experienced coach Magassouba (in office since 2017) traditionally has a good defense.

Successful qualification without conceding a goal || |

In the calendar year alone 2021, the Malian team was able to keep the clean slate ten times (!). In the remaining six international matches, it only conceded more than one goal once. The Africa Cup qualification was even survived completely without conceding 16 out of a possible 18 points.

The defense is also trump card for the Adler, so we recommend the odds of a maximum of one hit in the match between Tunisia and Mali. A 0-0 at halftime also seems anything but impossible in view of the importance of this first important group game.

In addition to the aforementioned Haidara and Bissouma, hopes rest on the shoulders of Moussa Djenepo (Southampton) and Ibrahima Koné, the earned his living in Sweden at Sarpsborg. Since 2017, however, no other attacker in the national team has met more often than the 22-year-old, who is often associated with Kenyan teams.

Expected formation of Mali:

Mounkoro; Sacko, Kouyate, Sissako, C Traore; Haidara, Bissouma; Coulibaly, A Traore, Djenepo; Kone

Tunisia - Mali direct comparison / H2H record

Only for the eleventh time the two national teams face each other on Wednesday afternoon. With five wins, one draw and four defeats Tunisia leads the direct comparison. The North Africans were also able to win the most recent direct duel to date in 2021. In a friendly match, the Eagles of Carthage just got the upper hand 1-0. The last encounter in the Africa Cup ended in 2019, also in the group stage, with a 1-1 draw. Even then it was still 0: 0 at the break.

Statistics highlights forTunisia Tunisia against MaliMali

Betting base forecast &Tunisia Tunisia - MaliMali Tip

We have not yet received any spectacle at the Africa Cup that started on Sunday. But every game convinces with tension and really well-functioning defensive lines. But it is also clear that, especially in the first group game, no team wants to lose and then be under pressure. So they like to take a 0-0 draw with them and then concentrate on game days two and three.

We expect a similar course of play in Group F between Tunisia and Mali. The betting odds suggest a match with few goals, in which the North Africans should have a slight advantage on their side. Nevertheless, our first approach is to switch to the goal market and again bet on a small number of hits.

Key facts - Tunisia vs. Mali tip
  • Tunisia cashed in 17 in 2021 International matches only conceded eleven goals
  • Mali recorded ten (!) Clean sheets last year
  • Last year Tunisia won a friendly 1-0

Mali stayed in six qualifying games without conceding a goal and only had to hit twice in a total of 16 international matches in 2021. The Tunisians also have a strong defense with comparable numbers. Given the above-mentioned assumption that both teams do not want to fall behind, it is also advisable to bet on a goalless first half.

We have therefore chosen Tunisia and Mali for the Tip on the 0: 0 decided after 45 minutes. At the top we get a 2.25 at Unibet, which is worth a stake of five units. Alternatively, the under 1.5 after the full playing time as well as a game in which a maximum of one of the two teams scores can be viewed. However, if we had to decide on a winner, the choice on the DNB market would probably fall on the Eagles of Carthage.

After many years of my own performance-oriented Kickens my passion shifted in the direction of the coaching job. Initially in the youth and finally up to the paid "professional football" in the Kenyan 4th league, where I have the opportunity to be part of a young, dynamic coaching team as an assistant coach for video analysis / scouting.

Also my sympathy for statistics & analysis in general, which I am not only able to live out in my coaching work, but also as chief editor at the betting base. Our diligent readers of the betting base as well as the loyal listeners of the "two-footed" videos on the betting base channel on YouTube should have noticed a weakness for facts and figures.

In addition to soccer, basketball, tennis and above all American football have become absolute passions, especially since these sports are becoming more and more data-based and special.

Exactly this is also my approach for you: Think about the game before the game, read our very statistic-based analyzes and also get your own picture of the factors you have weighted yourself, which can influence a game, regardless of the sport Read more
