Ghana News and Form
Ghana were thwarted in their opening group stage game by Benin, the fixture playing out to a 2-2 draw. After a 0-0 draw against Cameroon in the group’s feature match, it left Ghana with a bit of work to do to get to the top spot in the final round of matches. With Cameroon failing to beat Benin in their final game, Ghana delivered a 2-0 win over Guinea-Bissau to top the table in the head to head over the Cameroonians. Jordan Ayew is their top scorer at the tournament with two goals in three games.
The Black Stars might have hoped for a slightly easier round of sixteen tie though. Their record in recent Africa Cup of Nations tournaments has been good. They have finished in the top four in each of the last six editions now, but none of those campaigns yielded a title. They are four-time winners of the tournament, but their last success was all the way back in 1982. Ghana have suffered just one defeat in their last eight games, winning four of those. They have been tight at the back with three clean sheets in their last four games played now.
Ghana v Tunisia Head to Head

It is a W5 D2 L1 record that Ghana have over Tunisia
Tunisia are winless in three against the Black Stars
Both teams have scored in five of the previous eight meetings
Tunisia News and Form
Tunisia will have been expecting a bit of a higher return than what they managed in the group stage. They played out three straight drawn matches. Their first two against Angola and Mali were 1-1 draws, while they could only close out with a really disappointing 0-0 draw against Mauritania. So it hasn’t been wonderful stuff from the Eagles of Carthage at all. They have been to the quarterfinals in three of their last four Africa Cup of Nations appearances though.
Their current form suggests that they are going to be in this tie. They are undefeated in their last six games losing just one of their last eight. Since the beginning of September last year, Tunisia are W7 D3 L3 but only one of those three defeats were in competitive fixtures. Tunisia’s 0-0 draw against Mauritania saw them take their first clean sheet in five. It also saw them have a five-match scoring streak snapped.
