There won’t be too many bettors falling over themselves to bet on Tunisia or Australia to have much joy in FIFA World Cup 2022 Group D, with the two nations’ considerable underdogs behind France and Denmark to reach the knockout phase of the competition.
This will be Tunisia’s sixth appearance at the World Cup, but they are yet to go beyond the group stage and have only won two games in their history in the tournament. As for Australia, this will be their sixth attempt at the World Cup too, although they have reached the Round of 16 before, back in 2006, where they lost to eventual champions Italy.
So, can either of these teams upset the odds? Both will fancy their chances of winning this Tunisia vs Australia encounter, and you can have your say in the huge variety of betting markets provided by LV BET.

Tunisia Hoping to Cash In On Recent Successes
They may not be one of the most exalted names in world football, but Tunisia have definitely got something about them. Tunisia reached the quarter-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations earlier this year, beating the likes of Nigeria along the way.
They also recently won the Kirin Cup, which, while not a tournament that generates too many column inches, saw the Tunisians defeat higher-ranked opposition in Chile and Japan on their way to a rare major competition victory.
Progress through the FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifiers was somewhat more difficult, although they did top their group before defeating Mali in the two-legged play-off game. Their progress was powered by two of their most outstanding players – Wahbi Khazri and Ellyes Skhiri:
Head coach Jalel Khadri can call upon the likes of Khazri, Skhiri and Manchester United youngster Hannibal Mejbri, and it’s a team that will feel confident of prevailing in this Tunisia vs Australia fixture on November 26.
Date with Destiny in FIFA World Cup 2022 Group D
The World Cup hasn’t always been a happy hunting ground for Australia, whose five appearances have yielded just a solitary run to the knockout phase.
Unfortunately for head coach Graham Arnold, there isn’t a great deal of optimism that this Socceroos vintage is one that can improve upon that record. A good marker of where an international team is at is to look at where their players ply their trade at the club level and for the Aussies just two of their typical squad play in one of Europe’s ‘big five’ leagues.
A lack of quality condemned Australia to a tricky run during the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification, where they finished third in their pool behind Saudi Arabia and Japan. They then needed a late goal to see off the UAE in the AFC play-off, before sneaking past Peru in the inter-confederation game by virtue of a penalty shootout.
At least, if nothing else, they shared the goals around during their Qatar World Cup 2022 qualifying, as opposed to relying on just one or two players:
With France and Denmark expected to wrap up the top two places in FIFA World Cup 2022 Group D, perhaps Australia’s best hope of restoring pride in their campaign is to defeat Tunisia in this 26 November contest.
Betting Tips and Odds on Tunisia vs Australia in FIFA World Cup 2022 Group D
Thanks to the order of the Qatar 2022 dates, whoever wins this Tunisia vs Australia game will give themselves a chance of progression to the knockout phase heading into the final round of Group D fixtures.
But will there be a winner? The LV BET odds for this game suggest it will be a very tightly-contested battle, with neither side considered an odds-on favourite.
The make-up of the two squads also suggests that goals might be hard to come by, and so betting markets like the draw or Under 2.5 goals may just be of interest to Qatar 2022 punters.
Either way, you can see how the action plays out via BBC One and the BBC iPlayer in the UK.
