Burkina Faso Team News
Issoufou Dayo, a Berkane defender who just tested positive for COVID-19, is a serious worry for Burkina Faso. He missed the game against Gabon.
Following starting each of his team’s first three games, the 30-year-old was replaced by Soumaila Ouattara, who should keep his starting spot after a strong showing.
Traore made up for his missed penalty in the 18th minute by scoring 10 minutes later, and the Aston Villa striker should lead the assault once more.
Tunisia Team News
Tunisia will be strengthened by the return of many key players, including Ali Maaloul, Ghailene Chaalali, and Ben Hmida, as the COVID-19 situation in the squad eases.
Wahbi Khazri, who only played four minutes against Nigeria, will push for a starting spot on Saturday, and we anticipate the Saint-Etienne player to lead the attack once more.
Msakni came up trumps for the North Africans last time out with a winner against the Super Eagles, and the 31-year-old attacker should partner up with Khazri in attack.
Burkina Faso possible starting XI:
Koffi; Kabore, Tapsoba, Ouattara, Yago; Nikiema, Guira, Sangare; Bande, Ouattara, Traore
Tunisia possible starting XI:
Said; Drager, Talbi, Ifa, Haddadi; Skhiri, Laidouni, Slimane; Khazri, Jaziri, Msakni
