Croatia welcome Tunisia to the Stadium NK Varteks in Varazdin for a friendly meeting, which will be the first H2H meeting between these two nations in the 21st century.
The hosts have never lost to an African nation, picking up two wins against the CAF-based teams in the past 12 months. However, they have endured mixed fortunes over their previous five outings (W3, L2), although all five of those matches have featured over 2.5 goals and saw both teams score. Moreover, the 2018 FIFA World Cup runners-up have struggled to impress since returning from Russia, securing four wins in nine games (W4, D2, L3), while keeping a clean sheet only once in the process. Still, the Blazers have been ruthless at home over the past nine months, clinching four wins in five home games (W4, D1), with Zlatko Dalic’s men scoring 2+ match goals across all of those triumphs.
Meanwhile, the visitors are preparing for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations that will take place later this month, as they come into this meeting after pulling off two wins in three outings in 2019 (W2, L1). Interestingly, both of those victories have seen them score 2+ match goals and preserve a blank slate, while their only defeat since the turn of the year saw them lose 1-0 to Algeria. Still, Eagles of Carthage have struggled for consistency since exiting the World Cup after the group stage, having clinched five wins in eight games since returning from Russia (W5, L3). Just three of those clashes have featured over 2.5 goals, while only two of those have seen both teams score.
