Expect a neck-to-neck battle between Tunisia and Cape Verde Islands. Both teams aspire for a historic World Cup entry and both are readily qualified.

Together with Tunisia, Cape Verde is also hoping to book their entry to Brazil. Should they win, it will serve as a historic victory for the team because it will signal their first entry into the World Cup.


Cape Verde currently trails Tunisia by three points. It boasts a better goal difference and a single win will make a major change in itsWorld Cup bid.

With 11 points under its wing, Tunisia presents a better form than Cape Verde. Out of its 5 matches, it won thrice and forced a draw in the remaining 2 encounters.


Scoring wise, the team has the upper-hand. But they cannot be too overconfident since Cape Verde is also determined to enter the celebrated tournament.


Cape Verde has 9 points. It lost twice and won thrice during its last 5 matches. If they win against Tunisia, they will immediately take the spotlight and cause a major upset.


Tunisia has a high possibility of winning. Yet, expect it to be a down the wire match.
