Panama vs Tunisia Predictions
Both of these two teams have very little to play for. They have each been eliminated from Group G after losing their opening two fixtures. Panama have conceded nine goals but they did net their first ever World Cup goal against England which sparked wild celebrations from those travelling fans. Tunisia played reasonably well against Belgium but conceded some sloppy goals. Neither side will want to finish on zero points and they will be desperate to end with a victory. As a result, this could end all-square. The draw is available at 13/5 with Bet365.
Panama vs Tunisia Preview
Panama fans are delighted to see their side compete at the World Cup and the competition debutants are exiting at the group stage as expected. They were atrocious in the first half against England but they did manage to net their first ever goal in the tournament and that was a monumental moment for the CONCACAF side. They used rough-handed tactics against England and gave away two penalties and they must ensure they are less abrasive in the box against Tunisia. They have collected the most yellow cards in the tournament and they have a couple of players missing for this game.
Tunisia competed admirably in Group G but they are leaving the competition empty-handed. They were narrowly beaten by England before struggling to contain Belgium on June 23rd. They did find the net twice in the second half and looked dangerous going forward. They’ve netted three times at the tournament but their problems have been at the other end of the field. Youssef Msakni’s injury pre-tournament didn’t help matters, however, they’ve not struggled for creativity and they will fancy their chances of picking up three points in this final match.
Both Teams to Score Prediction
Both of these sides are off the mark for the tournament and will fancy their chances of finding the net in this tie. There is nothing to lose in this game and the pressure if off. Tunisia have looked extremely dangerous in the final third whilst Panama have played some nice football at times. There could be a couple of goals in this game and both teams should find the net. Both Teams to Score? Yes is priced at 7/10 with Bet365.
Panama vs Tunisia Correct Score Prediction
Panama are dreaming of picking up their first ever point at the World Cup and they stand a decent chance of getting a draw from this tie. They should be able to get something but it’s unlikely to be goalless. 1-1 looks a likely outcome and will be popular in the correct score market. It is priced at 6/1 with 10Bet.

Group G Standings
Group G is pretty much wrapped up with both of these sides eliminated after two games. Panama and Tunisia have failed to collect a single point in their opening couple of matches. Belgium and England share the same amount of points and goal difference and will battle it out for first place.
- Panama have picked up eight yellow cards in their previous two matches
- They’ve scored just two goals in their last seven matches across all competition
- Felipe Baloy netted their first ever World Cup goal against England
- Tunisia have conceded 12 goals in their last five matches
- The North African side have netted in six of their last seven matches
- Tunisia are looking for their first World Cup win since 1978. Tunisia can be backed at 4/5 with William Hill
Head to Head
These two sides have never previously faced one another.
Roman Torres – The Seattle Sounders defender helped secure qualification for his side and he will once again be pivotal to their chances in Group G. He will lead by example and ensure the CONCACAF outfit are well drilled at the back. He netted twice in nine qualifiers and his return of ten goals from 110 caps isn’t a bad return for a central defender. If Panama find the back of the net, it is likely to be from a set-piece.
Wahbi Khazri – He may have failed to make the grade at Sunderland but the winger has enjoyed a profitable season at Rennes. In the absence of Msakni, Khazri is tasked with creating opportunities and fashioning chances. Tunisia’s defence is secure and robust but their attack is powderpuff by comparison and they’ll need Khazri to be at his best throughout the tournament.
