Tunisia go up against Australia this coming Saturday in their second outing in the World Cup group stage. With all scenarios still open, we are looking ahead to an exciting encounter.

Following the opening round of the World Cup group matches, Tunisia are number two on one point, while Australia have zero points as number four. Home side Tunisia go into their match on Saturday as number 30 in the FIFA world ranking, while Australia find themselves as number 38.

As rather big outsiders in this group it would be considered an upset if Tunisia were to survive the World Cup beyond the group stage. It has the look of three very tough outings in this particular group for Tunisia.

Australia arrive at the World Cup with mischief on their mind, but seeing them get beyond the group would indeed raise some eyebrows.

Tunisia vs Australia Prediction

Tournament Overview

Tunisia enter their next assignment in the World Cup hoping to justify their status as slight favourites against Australia. The latter could turn out to be a potential banana skin though, and the former will know how to tread carefully. Poor Australia. They were left battered and bruised after opening their World Cup campaign by getting thrown under the bus by France. Are they able to avenge themselves, or have confidence taken too big a hit?
