Tunisia v. France
Odds, picks & predictions
Moneyline pick: France -260
Despite the excitement surrounding Tunisia and the possibility of them qualifying for their first-ever round of 16 in this tournament, France are all but guaranteed to win this one. The French side sit on top of the group with a perfect 2-0-0 record and six points after their first two matches. They’ve already qualified for the knockouts and all but officially have topped the group, but a win or draw will see them officially declared the winners of Group D.
France have scored six goals so far in the tournament, starting with a 4-1 shellacking of Australia followed by a 2-1 win over Denmark thanks to a Kylian Mbappe brace. Tunisia’s lone point came from a scoreless draw with Denmark to open the campaign, while they dropped a 1-0 result against Australia in their second match. No matter how you look at it, they’re really just no match for the defending champions as France should cruise to a comfortable and comprehensive win over Tunisia.
How each team can advance:
- France have already qualified for the round of 16, but they will win the group with a win or draw against Tunisia. Even with a France loss, they’d still likely win the group unless Australia can beat Denmark by enough goals to make up the differential.
- Tunisia can advance with a win over France combined with a Denmark win or draw against Australia. If Denmark win, Tunisia would just have to beat France by more goals than Denmark’s win. A draw or loss against France will eliminate Tunisia.
