CAN 2017: Qualification Odds for Tunisia
A one day from the end of qualifying for the African Cup of Nations in 2017 , the Tunisia could end up level on points with one or two selections.
The Tunisian team will compete for the direct ticket to Gabon with Liberia and Togo .
Before the last day, here is the state of the Group A :
Tunisia Vs Liberia
Togo Vs Djibouti
1 Tunisia (10 pts)
2- Liberia (10 pts)
3- Togo (8 pts)
4- Djibouti (0 pt)
The Tunisian team that will face Liberia on Sunday will end up tied with this selection, but in this case, the Liberia finish in first place in Group A because of direct confrontations.
To prevail against the Liberia , the Tunisia must win their match on Sunday and it will be thus assured of finishing in first place.
If no result between Tunisia and Liberia and a victory of Togo face to Djibouti , three selections would meet while in first place with eleven points.
The CAF provides the following in case of equality between three selections:
1- the greatest number of points obtained in the matches between the teams concerned;
2- the best goal difference in the matches between the teams concerned;
3- the highest number of goals scored in the matches between the teams concerned;
4 - the highest number of goals scored on the road in the meetings between the teams
5- if, after applying 14.2.1 to 14.2.4 criteria, both teams are still tied, the 14.2.1 to 14.2.4 criteria are reapplied to the matches played between the two teams in question to determine the final ranking of the two teams. If that does not for one of them, the criteria 14.2.6 to 14.2.9 are applied in the order shown;
6- goal difference in all group matches;
7- highest number of goals scored in all group matches;
8 the highest number of goals scored on the road in all group matches;
9 a draw made by the Organising Committee
Before this last day, here are the results in the matches between the three selections:
Togo 0-0 Tunisia
Tunisia 1-0 Togo
Liberia 1-0 Tunisia
Liberia 2-2 Togo
Togo 2-1 Liberia
Thus, the classification would be as follows (before matches on the final day):
Togo 5 pts (0, 4 goals scored), Liberia 4 points (0, 4 goals), Tunisia 4 points (0, 1 goal scored)
If no result between Tunisia and Liberia , the national team will always be behind Togo and Liberia in the overall standings and can not even compete for one of the seats of the best second.
This fact that Tunisia will have no choice and must imperatively win against Liberia in order to qualify directly for the finals of the African Cup of Nations in 2017 .
