Panama vs Tunisia Predictions

For other bookmakers

Panama and Tunisia are heading home from the 2018 World Cup early. Both teams started with successive defeats to Belgium and England and they will each be hoping to avoid finishing bottom of Group G. Panama conceded six goals to England whilst Tunisia were knocked for five against Belgium. They will both be hoping to recover from heavy defeats and they may have to share the points. Panama will be dreaming of their first ever point at the tournament and they want to give their travelling fans something to shout about. Tunisia haven’t won a World Cup match since 1978 and will have high hopes of ending that barren run. They may fall short here. A draw can be backed at 3.65 with 888sport.

Panama vs Tunisia Preview

Panama will leave Russia with their heads held high. They weren’t expected to qualify for the tournament and they have netted their first ever goal in the competition. Felipe Baloy’s second-half strike sent their fans wild and they will be looking to take something from this game. They have 90 minutes to salvage their first ever World Cup point but they will need to tighten up at the back. Their tactics were too heavy-handed for the Egyptian official and they conceded two penalties against England. Can they avoid ending the tournament without a point to their name?

Tunisia battled admirably against England and were only narrowly defeated. A late Harry Kane header denied them a precious point and they were outclassed by Belgium on June 23rd. The North African side looked dangerous in the final third and did manage to score two goals against the Red Devils but they were incredibly open at the back and struggled to contain their opponents. It’s been a while since they were victorious in this competition and they will fancy their chances against the World Cup debutants.

Both Teams to Score Prediction

For other bookmakers

Neither of these two teams have been secure at the back and they’ve conceded 16 goals between them in 180 minutes of football. Tunisia have scored and conceded in each of their last two games and they’ve only failed to find the net once in the last seven matches. Panama netted their first ever World Cup goal against England and they’ll be keen to add to that haul. They played some nice football against the Three Lions and with the pressure off, they should find the net here. Both Teams to Score? Yes is priced at 1.70 with 888sport.

Panama vs Tunisia Correct Score Prediction

These two sides will be desperate to avoid ending their 2018 World Cup campaign bottom of Group G and both teams will push for a winner during this game. It is likely to end all square but unlikely to be goalless. Neither defence can be trusted and both teams have a few players missing for this tie through injury and suspension. 1-1 looks like a sensible wager and can be backed at 6.27 with Sports Interaction.

Group G Standings

Belgium and England will fight it out for top spot in Group G, with both sides sitting on six points. They’ve also got identical goal difference and it should be an intriguing contest. Panama and Tunisia are out of the tournament and are yet to collect a point. The North African side have a superior goal difference and will be fancied to avoid bottom position.

Statistics

  • Panama have picked up eight yellow cards in their previous two contests including five against Belgium
  • They’ve netted just two times in their last seven matches across all competitions
  • Felipe Baloy netted Panama’s first ever World Cup goal
  • Tunisia have conceded 12 goals in their last five matches
  • The North African side have netted in six of their last seven matches and look dangerous going forward
  • Tunisia are looking for their first World Cup win since 1978. Tunisia can be backed at 1.80 with William Hill

Head to Head

  • These two sides have never previously faced one another.

Key Players

Panama

Roman Torres – The Seattle Sounders defender’s header sent his side to the 2018 World Cup and he will lead by example at the tournament. He has an above-average strike rate for a central defender and netted twice during qualification. As well as carrying out his duties at the back, he is also likely to be a threat in the opposition’s penalty box.

Tunisia

Wahbi Khazri – Khazri struggled to make the grade in England but his performances at Rennes this season suggest that he can cause problems in Group G. He is quick, skilful and has a wonderful crossing ability. With the loss of Msakni, he is seen as Tunisia’s best attacking outlet.
