Group B action on Thursday as all four teams are level on points with two 1-1 draws in the opening games. Tunisia and Zambia meet here with both teams favourites to progress from Group B , with two draws in their opening games though this game takes on far bigger significance. A win here for either side puts them in the driving seat for the group. The 2012 champions Zambia will be looking to get their campaign on track here after struggling to a 1-1 draw with Congo DR. With a solid team Zambia's hopes of repeating their 2012 victory will be again based on their defence.
Tunisia themselves were favourites for this Group, they played poorly in their opening game against Cape Verde Islands. Tunisia are a strong physical side. The struggled against the quick movement of the Cape Verde team who actually do have some good young players. They wont face the same type of threat against Zambia but they will have to watch Singulumu who is Zambias best attacking option. For Tunisia their attacking play will center around Manzer who scored in the opening game and is their best center forward.
This game has 1-1 written all over it for me, I think there will be nerves around both teams as they know a loss leaves them on the brink of exit where a draw sets them up for a winner take all showdown in the third group game against the so called weaker teams. Taking the draw here.
