England opens their World Cup account on Monday and the Three Lions are carrying form forward to the tournament. They will be expected winners but with their recent failures in major international tournaments there may be a few nerves around. Tunisia thanks to some decent current form may be a trickier opponent for England to handle than it first appeared. Looking at our betting tips for Tunisia v England a low scoring game is likely to crop up.

Tunisia v England Betting Tips
Can Tunisia, come up with something to stifle England out of a victory? There is something that is probably on the back of many an English punters minds. Given their recent form, Tunisia may well make life difficult for the Three Lions. Tunisia have lost just one of their last 10 games, winning four goals. That lone defeat in that sequence happened in their final World Cup warm-up match when they fell 1-0 Spain. But they certainly made the Spaniards work hard for their spoils. So that will give them belief that they may be able to stick in there and frustrate England. In their two previous warm-up games before meeting Spain, Tunisia played out a 2-2 draw against both Portugal and Turkey and only conceded a 90th-minute equaliser to the Turks to deny them a win. Seeing Tunisia collect a victory in this one doesn’t look too likely, but England fans will be worried that the Africans could be strong enough to keep England at arm’s length. Either way, our Tunisia v England betting tips are looking at under 1.5 goals for 2/1 odds at William Hill* (Betting Odds were taken on June 14th, 2018 at 5:54 p.m.).
Can England avoid an early wobble in the tournament? That is the last thing that they would need. They need a confident start to get up and running and they will be looking to extend a 10 match undefeated streak that they have put together since the start of September 2017. Seven of the 10 games they have played in that sequence ended under 2.5 goals and five of them ended under the 1.5 goal line. So this is not likely to be a major goal-fest of a fixture and an England 1-0 at William Hill is at 4/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on June 14th, 2018 at 5:54 p.m.). While that doesn’t read as being a particularly positive result for England who are fully expected to record a victory, it would get them up and running and get them off the mark. That’s about the most important thing here. Just twice in their last nine games have England managed to produce more than one goal in a fixture.
Harry Kane is their big goalscoring hope at the tournament and Kane is the 13/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on June 14th, 2018 at 5:54 p.m.) first goalscorer favourite at William Hill. Just because of the results Tunisia have produced recently England are likely going to have to be patient to get anything out of this game. Backing the half-time draw, or going further by shooting for a draw/England half-time/full-time wager does have some appeal in our Tunisia v England betting tips. This may be an early test for the Three Lions especially with the expectancy of a victory on their shoulders, but they have looked fairly confident and fluent in attack in recent matches. They will have the chance to really open up when they face Panama in their second group stage match. For now, it is just about getting the win on the board.
Tunisia v England Head to Head
This will be just the second meeting between England and Tunisia the previous one coming at the 1998 World Cup in France. That was an occasion marred with hooliganism and both nations this time around will be looking for a more pleasant, peaceful experience. England collected a 2-0 victory in that game over Tunisia in the group stage match.
Who will win – Tunisia v England Predictions
Our Tunisia v England predictions are leaning towards this being a low-scoring game, but one that England should be able to edge. The Three Lions have looked fine in attack in recent friendlies other their goal output at the end of the day has not been high. So we are looking at an England 1-0 correct score option for their opener.
