Equatorial Guinea and Tunisia will battle for three points in a 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier on Saturday.

Only three points separate the two sides in this top-of-the-table clash in Group B. The visitors currently lead the way at the summit, having garnered 10 points from four matches. Equatorial Guinea are one spot behind them in second place.

The home side come into the game on the back of a 1-1 draw away to Zambia. Fashion Sakala's second-half strike for the Chipolopolo was canceled out by Federico Bikoro's strike for Equatorial Guinea.

Tunisia also settled for a share of the spoils in a goalless draw away to Mauritania in a game they controlled from start to finish.

The hosts have nothing to lose and everything to gain by going all out for victory to boost their chances of a maiden FIFA World Cup appearance. They will have their work cut out, though, against a resilient Tunisian defense that gives little away.

The Carthage Eagles have a simple enough task - win and secure progress to the playoff stage of the qualifiers. We are backing Tunisia to secure a comfortable win in addition to a clean sheet.

Prediction: Equatorial Guinea 0-2 Tunisia
