At the OtkrytiyeArena in Moscow, Belgium will face off against Tunisia, seeking for a win that will see them qualify for the knockout stage. The Red Devils have managed to beat Panama by three goals to nil in their opening World Cup match despite the strong resistance from the Los Canaleros in the first half, thus securing the top place in Group G, in front of England, who defeated Tunisia 2-1 thanks to Harry Kane’s 90th-minute header. One of the best sides at the final tournament, Roberto Martínez’s team is obliged to move at least one step further than in EURO 2016 when Wales surprisingly eliminated them by three goals to one. After dominating performance in the qualification competition, De Rode Duivels arrived in Russia as one of the favorites to claim the prestigious trophy, but the enormous expectations might represent a problem for a relatively inexperienced team. On the other hand, the Eagles of Carthage have nothing to lose in this match, which is why they can enter the game relaxed, relieving the pressure. Nabil Maâloul’s players demonstrated a great spirit and determination against favored England team, losing the game in the final moments, and if they can repeat the similar performance against Belgium, anything can happen.
Martinez will have all of his players fit and ready for the encounter, while Maâloul might have to give up on Mouez Hassen who sustained a shoulder injury on the training ground.
