TUN vs ML Dream11 Prediction for Tunisia vs Mali Africa Cup of Nations Live Score Fantasy Football Tips & Dream11 Team


TUN vs ML Dream11: A defensive style of football has helped Tunisia be relatively successful within the last few years. They reached the 2018 FIFA World Cup and frustrated eventual semi-finalists England before holding off Equatorial Guinea to make the playoffs of CAF’s qualification for the 2022 global event, and reached the final of the 2021 FIFA Arab Cup last month – despite having a limited talent pool. They come up against a Mali side that have one of the most impressive midfields in the tournament with Yves Bissouma, Amadou Haidara and Diadie Samassekou. This one is an evenly matched encounter and a low-scoring draw would appear likely.
