Panama vs Tunisia Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
In the final clash of the day, Panama will face Tunisia at the Mordovia Arena (Saransk). This is a match between two sides which have been eliminated from the competition and in it, they will try to provide some comfort for their fans back home.
Panama is placed last in Group G with two losses and a negative goal difference of -8. Even though this was their first appearance at the big stage, people didn’t believe that they would go down this easily. In the first round Belgium defeated them by the score of 3-0, and in the second, England crushed them by the score of 6-2. The English squad started the match with all of their might and as a result, scored five goals in the first half alone. Stones scored two, Lingard one, and Kane added two goals of his own from the penalty spot. In the second half, Kane managed to get a hat-trick after Loftus-Cheek’s shot deflected off his foot and went into the goal. They lack in all departments of their play, from defense to offense. The fact that they conceded nine goals in two matches shows how bad defense is, and the fact that in two matches they had only four shots on target proves that their attack is not that better. Nonetheless, this was a huge experience for the World Cup newbies and they should be proud for having made it this far in the first place.
Tunisia is placed third in their group with zero points from two losses. They have a somewhat better goal difference compared to Panama, +4, and for that reason hold the third slot. In the first round they played against England and proved that on a good day, they can tackle in the ring with the best. They lost in the final minute of the match with a late goal from Harry Kane of Spurs. In the second clash, however, they were not up to the task and as a result lost by the score of 5-2. Just six minutes into the match, Hazard opened the goal scoring sheet from the penalty spot. Ten minutes later, Lukaku scored his first goal of the game. In the stoppage time, he made his second. In the second half, Belgium continued with their attacks and had no intention of stopping. As a result, they got two more goals. Hazard scored early in the half and Batshuayi got his name on to the scoreboard in the final minutes of the match. Belgium dominated in all aspects of the game. They had twenty-three shots of which twelve were on target, as opposed to Tunisia’s five.
The two sides have never faced each other before. Although this match does not hold much value, as both teams have already been eliminated, it is likely that the two countries will give their best to win and bring some joy to the fans back home. They were in one of the toughest groups in the World Cup, and no one can blame them for their results.
