Our football match prediction:
Tunisia will be looking to secure automatic qualification for the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals when they host Libya at their Stade Olimpique de Rades on Saturday evening. The Eagles of Carthage sit in top position in Group A ahead of the visit of Libya and they are three points clear of second-placed Congo DR. The Tunisians are one point away from booking their place at the World Cup finals, but we predict that they will go for a win in Saturday’s football match against Jalal Al Damja’s charges. Tunisia recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Libya at Stade Omar Hamadi earlier in the process and the history is likely to repeat itself. Al Duhail attacker scored a hat-trick in a 4-1 win over Guinea last month, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay. Taking everything into account, home win should be considered.
