Tunisia: Tunisia deployed a 3-4-3 formation in their scoreless draw with Denmark. France are two points ahead of them in first place. If Tunisia can beat Australia it would put them in a very strong position ahead of the final group game against France. They’d have four points meaning that it would only take a draw with France (who’ll may be qualified by then) to progress to the next phase.
Australia: Australia utilized a 4-5-1 system in their 4-1 defeat to France. If they’re to bounce back and go into the final game of the group phase with something to play for, they’re going to need to beat Tunisia. That would take them to three points, meaning they have a fighting chance ahead of their final game against Denmark. That game could then become a deciding match to determine who will move on.
