Reigning World Cup champion France can take a big step toward defending their title when Les Bleus close out Group D play against Tunisia in the 2022 World Cup on Wednesday at Education City Stadium in Doha. After wins in their first two World Cup matches, the French lead Group D with six points and need only a draw to win the group. They could even win the group with a loss to Tunisia if they get a friendly result in the other Group D match on Wednesday between Australia and Denmark. Meanwhile the Tunisians need a victory over France and an Australia loss or draw and win a tiebreaker to advance to the knockout stage. 

Kickoff is 10 a.m. ET. The French are the -255 favorites (risk $255 to win $100) in the latest France vs. Tunisia odds from Caesars Sportsbook, with the Tunisians the +700 underdogs. A draw is priced at +360. Before locking in any Tunisia vs. France picks or predictions, you need to see what SportsLine soccer insider Brandt Sutton has to say.

Why you should back France

Kylian Mbappe has arguably been one of the best players of the World Cup so far. The 23-year-old forward for Paris Saint-Germain already has scored three goals in Qatar, which is tied for the most in the tournament. The other three players to have scored three goals have played three games, while Mbappe has played just two. He also has an assist.

In addition, France have played well so far in Qatar. The French rank third among all nations in passes completed (1,067) and passing accuracy (88%). They also are fourth in final third passes completed (244).

Why you should back Tunisia

The Tunisians face a France side that have little to play for on Wednesday. Les Bleus have not only clinched a spot in the knockout round; they almost certainly will be the top team in the group. The French would have to lose to Tunisia, and Australia would have to beat Denmark while also making up the goal differential (France stand at +4, while Australia are -2) in order for Les Bleus to not be the top team in the group. France manager Didier Deschamps could elect to sit key players or play them sparingly on Wednesday in preparation for the knockout round.

In addition, Tunisia have a capable defender in Dylan Bronn. The 27-year-old has been a key part of the Tunisia lineup since his first cap in 2017. Last season for Metz in Ligue, he allowed opponents to get past him only 0.4 times per match.
