Tunisia vs Angola (By: Birdman)
This game is for the group E where features Tunisia, Mali, Mauritania and Angola. After the World Cup in Russia where Tunisia showed good performance in a difficult group: they have lost against England by 1-2 and Belgium by 2-5 and a win against Panama by 2-1. Tunisia have changed the boss since the World Cup, as the french coach Alain Giresse has taken the team to build a good team in this Africa Cup of Nations 2019. They are currently ranked 2nd best team in Africa, coming into this match in good shape: They came through in first place during their qualifying campaign, above the hosts Egypt and they have won 5 and lost just one of their six qualifying matches. Also, they have won their last friendly games against Iraq by 2-0, against Croatia by 2-1 and Burundi by 2-1.
Probable line-up: Mouez Hassen (Goalkeeper, Nice), Wajdi Kechrida (Defender, Etoile Sahel), Dylan Bronn (Defender, Gent), Yassine Meriah (Defender, Olympiakos Piraeus), Oussama Haddadi (Defender, Dijon), Ellyes Skhiri (Midfielder, Montpellier), Ferjani Sassi (Midfielder, Zamalek), Naim Sliti (Midfielder, Dijon), Wahbi Khazri (Midfielder, St Etienne) and Taha Khenissi (Forward, Esperance Tunis).
Angola had a golden period between 2006 and 2010, as they made the World Cup in Germany. Recently, Angola have failed to get beyond the quarter-final of the Africa Cup of Nations since they hosted it in 2010. They were eliminated in the first round in 2012 and 2013 and then failed to qualify in 2015 and 2017. Angola preparation for the Africa Cup of Nations 2019 wasn't ideal as they played just one friendly match against Guinea-Bissau, which they won 2-0.
Probable line-up: Tony (Goalkeeper, Primeiro de Agosto), Bastos (Defender, lazio), Dani Massunguna (Defender, Primeiro de Agosto), Isaac (Primeiro de Agosto), Paizo (Primeiro de Agosto), Herenilson (Midfielder), Show (Midfielder, Primeiro de Agosto), Djalma Campos (Midfielder, Alanyaspor), Wilson Eduardo (Midfielder, Braga), Fredy (Forward, Antalyaspor) and Job Mabululu (Forward, Primeiro de Agosto).
I think Tunisia have the better squad and they showed recently good performance and I can add the bad preparation for Angola for this Africa Cup to choose the winner: Tunisia.
