Tunisia are a heavy favourite to progress in this group and they are unbeaten in their last seven in all competitions. Tunisia are a physical strong team with Younes and Ben Youssef up front this Tunisia team look likely to win this group and could be a competitior in the knockout stages but first they must negotiate this group which is tougher than it looks.
They face a tough game against a Cape Verde team that have some young talent in their rranks. Gary Rodriguez and Heldon will be the key men for the islanders and they will take stopping as both are talented players plying their trade in a the Portugese and Spanish leagues. Cape Verde actually beat Tunisia 2-0 in a World Cup qualifier but the game got awarded to Tunisia as Cape Verde fielded an ineligible player. There is definite revenge angle here for Cape Verde if they can pull it together.
Tough game to handicap here as although Tunisia have a strong physical team I have a feeling Cape Verde could turn over the favourites here. I am going to take both teams to score though as the value I see in the market is there.
