Date/Time: 6-28-2018, 14:00 EDT
Spread: Tunisia -0.5
Total: 2.5 Goals
Panama tried really hard against Belgium in Game 1 but couldn’t avoid the loss by 0-3. However, they stood strong for the entirefirst half, but conceded late goals to lose by so much. Panama were actually pretty active against England in Game 2, but their fighting chances were quickly destroyed. They conceded a massive 5 goals in the first half, as they met a devastating 1-6 loss. Opposing defender John Stones took the lead at the 8th minute and scored two goals in the first half. Kane scored twice from the spot in the first half, and once again at the 62nd to complete his hattrick. Jesse Lingard had scored in the first half as well, while Felipe Baloy scored the only goal for Panama at the 78th minute. Panama will now fight to avoid the last spot in their first presence at a World Cup.
On the other hand, Tunisia were pretty solid against England in the first match, but left empty handed. Harry Kane took an early lead for England but Tunisia pulled even at the 35th minute. They were holding out for the draw point that would give them some qualifying chances, but Kane scored a late goalfor the 1-2. Tunisia were also pretty feisty against Belgium in Game 2, but were unlucky to concede two early goals (6th and 16th). Even so, Tunisia scored at the 18th minute with Bronn, only to conceded three more goals by the end of the match. They eventually scored once again at the dying moments of the match with Khazri for the final 2-5.
Both Panama and Tunisia have been doomed to elimination since the draw of this group. Playing against two very strong sides like England and Belgium left little room for error, and neither of the two allowed any. Panama and Tunisia will now have to clash against one another in nothing more than an exhibitions match.
I expect to see an open match between the two sides, as they will both play to impress. Of course they will be looking to avoid the final spot, but I bet they will have fun doing it. I think that Tunisia have been the better side here, and they should have the better chances to win. There is a very good chance we will see a lot of goals too, as both sides will be focused on attacking.
