  • Competition: Africa Cup of Nations
  • Date: Thursday, 24th January 2024
  • Kickoff: 17:00 UK/18:00 CET
  • Venue: Amadou Gon Coulibaly Stadium (Korhogo)

Thursday will be very interesting for the teams in group E as all four of them have a chance to progress to the next phase. Mali are the leader with four points, followed by South Africa and Namibia with one point fewer. The last is Tunisia (one point), but they, too, have a chance to progress if they win in the upcoming tie. 

South Africa opened the continental championship with a 2-0 loss against Mali, but they returned on the right track with a 4-0 win versus Namibia in the second round. South Africa dominated in the last game from the start, so they had a 3-0 lead already at halftime. After such a big win, their confidence will certainly improve ahead of the game versus Tunisia. 

Tunisia disappointed its fans in the first round when it lost 1-0 against Namibia. Still, Jalel Kadri's team improved in the previous game when Tunisia played 1-1 versus Mali. The opponents were better in that game, as Kadri's team had only 39% ball possession and five shots on the goal, but Tunisia still picked up a valuable point. 

South Africa vs Tunisia pick: Under 2.5 goals

South Africa's four goals against Namibia are their only goals in the last four matches. On the other hand, Tunisia scored only four goals in the previous five games. Under 2.5 goals should be the safest bet for this tie.

South Africa team news

South Africa didn't play well in the first round against Mali, so the head coach, Hugo Broos, changed a few players in the starting lineup for the second game. In a win versus Namibia, Thapelo Morena and Grant Kekana got the opportunity from the beginning and performed well, so we should anticipate them to continue to start.

Tunisia team news

Tunisia changed a few players, too, for the second round. In contrast to the first round and surprising loss against Namibia, the head coach, Jalel Kadri, gave Aissa Laidouni, Hamza Rafia, and Ali Abdi a chance. All three played well in the second round, so we shouldn't expect another change in the lineup for the game versus South Africa.
