Burkina Faso vs Tunisia: prediction and bets on Africa Cup of Nations 2022, January 29, 2022
Burkina Faso will face Tunisia in the quarter-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations 2022 (postponed from 2021) in Cameroon. Who’ll make it to the semi-finals? We’ll write about the forms of the two national teams below and advise which option is better to bet on. The match will begin at 8 p.m. local time (10 p.m. Moscow time) on Saturday, January 29, at the Stade Omnisport Roumdé Adjia in Garoua.
The current form of Burkina Faso The Burkina Faso national team started the CAN in a bad way, but already in that match, it made it clear that it had come here not just to walk around the Cameroonian pitches. The fact is that the Burkinians lost to the hosts, but took the lead in that meeting and showed potential in the long run (1-2). Then there was the most important victory over Cape Verde and, after a tie with Ethiopia, Burkina Faso took 2nd place in Pool A. In the 1/8 finals, the drawing of lots brought it to Gabon. The match turned out to be extremely tense – the Burkinians were leading 1-0 since the 28th minute, but at stoppage time, they scored their own goal, which sent them into extra time. We didn’t see goals there, and, in the penalty shootout, Burkina Faso turned out to be stronger than the opponents.
The latest results of Burkina Faso: • Won against Gabon 2-1 • Drew against Ethiopia 1-1 • Won against Cape Verde 1-0 • Lost against Cameroon 1-2 • Won against Gabon 3-0
The current form of Tunisia The Tunisian national team underperformed in the group stage, miraculously getting into the playoffs. Tunisians took 3rd place in their respective pool, and in the ranking of 3rd-placed teams, they also became 3rd. Recall that they lost to Mali and the Gambia, and beat only Mauritania, though very effectively. In the 1/8 finals, Tunisia met with Nigeria. It seemed it will have very little chance. But in the 47th minute, Tunisia took the lead, and in the 66th minute, Nigeria remained with 10 men, having “buried” itself. Although in these 20-something minutes the Nigerians created several scoring chances, they were simply unlucky.
The latest results of Tunisia: • Won against Nigeria 1-0 • Lost against Gambia 0-1 • Won against Mauritania 4-0 • Lost against Mali 0-1 • Drew against Algeria 0-0
Head-to-head encounters Burkina Faso and Tunisia met 4 times thus far. The former prevailed in 2 matches, while 2 ended with a tie.
Yes, after the victory over Nigeria, it’s logical to consider Tunisia as a favorite for the upcoming match, but we wouldn’t write off Burkina Faso too soon. This team looks great within the CAN and has every chance to go to the semi-finals. Moreover, the Tunisians, not without luck, passed the Nigerians, but they lost to the Malians and Gambians.
