This should be a cracking game as Congo DR need a win to guarantee themselves a trip to the knockout stages and Tunisia know that a draw will be enough to get them through as Group winners providing that Cape Verde dont win by two or more. With Congo Dr led by Crystal Palace Bolasie and West Brom's Mulumbu. Congo DR have some decent players and have been excellent in this tournament. Bolaise is a terrific individual and could be a game winner if given the chance. I have been impressed with both teams here though and am really looking forward to this one.
Tunisia came from behind to beat Zambia in the second game in the group. With Akaichi and Khazri they have two good attacking outlets. Khazri in particular has been excellent for Bordeaux in limited opportunities and has led the line last time out for Tunisia even though he plays most of his football as a midfielder in the national side. Tunisia are a dark horse to win the competition and with a solid defence and midfield and a very experienced coah in Leekens this will be a tough team to beat.
I am going to take both teams to score here. Although this competition has been predominantly an unders tournament I like the look of both offences here and I think they will both get on the scoresheet here. I wouldnt be all that surprised if the underdogs manage to come out on top here.
