Mauritania vs Tunisia (By: Birdman)
It was a big achievement for Mauritania to qualify to the African Cup of Nations but they have lost their first game against Mali by 4-1, thought they bounced back to get an important point against Angola after a 1-1 draw. Mauritania can still finish second in Group E but they need to win against Tunisia and hope Angola cannot defeat Mali. They will need to improve in all areas if they hope to beat Tunisia, however they have a very bad record against them: Tunisia have never lost to Mauritania in 11 matches with 9 wins and 2 draws. Mauritania have won 1 of their last 4 matches in all competitions.
On the other side, Tunisia started with a poor performance against Angola and they have draw by 1-1: Tunisia have scored the first goal after a penalty kick but they have conceded a goal in the 73th minute after a mistake by the Tunisian Goalkeeper Ben Mostafa. In the second game the Tunisian goalkeeper Hassen make a big mistake to help Mali to score their first goal. After that, they bounced back to score a goal by Kazri in the 70th minutes. Tunisia have won 4 of their last 5 games including the last 3 in a row before the draws with Angola and Mali in the tournament.
Tunisia haven't started well in their first game but they have bounced back to show a good performance against Mali and I think that they will get an easy win against Mauritania.
