Group A is Tunisia’s to lose

Published

on

As we are fresh from another fantastic round of 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers, AfricanFootball.com takes a look at the permutations in Group A.

The standings see Tunisia three points clear at the top of the log on 10 points, following their back-to-back clashes against second-placed DR Congo.

The Leopards were so close to leveling up with the Carthage Eagles, as they held a comfortable 2-0 lead in the teams’ second match in Kinshasa on Tuesday.

However, a lapse of concentration with around 10 minutes to play could well have cost Florent Ibenge’s side the chance to return to the World Cup for the first time since 1974, when their nation was still known as Zaire.

Tunisia need four points from their remaining two matches (Guinea away and Libya at home) to secure qualification, but it could be wrapped up as early as next month.

If Tunisia win in Conakry and DRC fail to win in Monastir against Libya, the Carthage Eagles will be guaranteed top spot.

This will also be the case if Nabil Maaloul’s men draw in Guinea and the Leopards lose their match against the Mediterranean Knights.

Group A – remaining fixtures:

7 October 2017 – Guinea v Tunisia
7 October 2017 – Libya v DR Congo
6 November 2017 – Tunisia v Libya
6 November 2017 – DR Congo v Guinea
