On January 20, Tunisia and Mali will face off at the Amadou Gon Coulibaly Stadium in Korhogo, Ivory Coast. Group E of the Africa Cup of Nations includes this game.
Tunisia are concerned about experienced attacker Taha Yassine Khenissi’s fitness for this match after he was injured early in their loss to Namibia. Even though they controlled possession, Naim Sliti or Bassem Srarfi might get a shot in the starting lineup due to an absence of opportunities produced. Prior to the AFCON competition, Tunisia had won 3 of their 4 previous games and drawn one, demonstrating strong form. They had only lost one of their previous five games before the event. In their last five games, Tunisia has scored seven goals and given up just one. Out of 54 African football countries, Tunisia is presently placed 3rd, only ahead of them are Morocco, who are semifinalists in the 2022 World Cup, and Senegal, the reigning Cup of Nations champions.
After defeating South Africa 2-0 to grab the lead in Group E, Mali’s Africa Cup of Nations journey started off to a tremendous start. After the interval, Kamory Doumbia’s free kick struck the bottom of the crossbar, giving Mali the advantage and a 60-minute lead. From on the line, skipper Hamari Traore punched home. Mali doubled their advantage in just 6 minutes when Lassine Sinayoko easily slotted under keeper Ronwen Williams after outmuscling Siyanda Xulu. Mali has continued to win their opening-round record in the Africa Cup of Nations. They now have 8 wins and 5 ties in their first-round matches out of 13 appearances in the event. Unverified reports from Africa claim that Tottenham’s Yves Bissouma and Moussa Diarra, both of Mali, have been afflicted with malaria. Mali will bring their best squad to try and take a bigger advantage in group E of this tournament.
