Madagascar meets Tunisia in the Africa Cup of Nations quarterfinals. The match will be played on Thursday, July 11th at Al Salam Stadium (Cairo)
Madagascar is beating a new record for itself with every match. The team first entered the final stage of a major tournament. Previously, it has never participated neither in the African Cup nor in the World Cup, of course. Madagascar progressed from the group and not just progressed but won it by beating Burundi, Guinea and Nigeria. In the 1/8 finals, it was 2-1 ahead Congo until the 90th minute, but the defenders didn’t see Mbemba during the last corner in the match, and he scored a goal between the legs of the goalkeeper. Feeling guilty, the goalkeeper corrected in the penalty shootout and made two saves, and now the debutant of the ACN is in the quarterfinal.

Tunisia was considered one of the favorites of the tournament even before its start. And after the elimination of Cameroon, Egypt, and someone from the Ivory Coast-Algeria pair, its chances will increase even more in the case of qualifying for the semifinals. Although the Eagles of Carthage don’t impress with their game. All 4 matches in the championship were tied. Like Madagascar, they crawled into the quarterfinals only after a penalty shootout in a game against Ghana. Moreover, Tunisia conceded in 3 of 4 matches of the tournament.
From the point of view of the usual fan, the Tunisia team is mean and not interesting. The meanness lies in the fact that it does not play and dries the game. And does not allow its rivals to play. Sooner or later, such a strategy will be punished. Ghana was close to knocking this anti-football team out of the tournament but didn’t succeed. Maybe Madagascar will be luckier. As they say, rookie’s luck, and the islanders confirm this thesis so far. According to the game, the team looks much more interesting and spectacular. 7 goals already scored. Personally I would like to see Madagascar in the semifinals. But it is likely to score a goal in the upcoming game. As we see, the team is not afraid of the authorities, goes forward and scores everybody and not once.
Prediction for the match: Madagascar to score - yes
