Zambia will face off with Tunisia in their second 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification Group B match on Tuesday.

Kick-off is at 3:00 pm CAT.

The match is expected to be played at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in the third-largest Zambian city in terms of size and population, Ndola.

Chipolopolo started their Group B campaign with an impressive 2-1 win over Mauritania away at the Stade Olympique de Nouakchott in Nouakchott on Friday.

Goals from Enock Mwepu and Prince Mumba inspired Zambia to a victory that took the Southern African side to second place on the group standings.

Zambia, who are under the guidance of coach Beston Chambeshi, will look to highly-rated Mumba as they eye another win against Group B leaders, Tunisia.

Meanwhile, Tunisia got off to a flying start as they thrashed Equatorial Guinea 3-0 at the Stade Hammadi Agrebi in Radès on Friday.

Mahmoud Bronn, Ellyes Skhiri and Wahbi Khazri all scored in the second-half as the 2004 Africa Cup of Nations champions recorded a home win.

The trio will be key for coach Mondher Kebaier’s side as they target an away victory against a confident Zambia side.

The previous encounter between Zambia and Tunisia was on 22 January 2015.

Tunisia secured a 2-1 win over Zambia in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations Group B match at the Nuevo Estadio de Ebebiyín in Equatorial Guinea.
