The Madagascar miracle has been the feel-good story of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations. However, the Barea bid to become the first team to reach the semifinals in their AFCON debut since South Africa in 1996 appears likely to hit a wall — a wall called the Tunisia Eagles of Carthage, as Sport24 reported.
But even though Tunisia ranks a massive 83 places higher than the 108th-ranked Indian Ocean island team, the fact remains that Madagascar won two of their three group stage matches including the 2-0 stunner over Nigeria, per Soccerway, and then went on to eliminate DR Congo at the Round of 16 on penalty kicks. But Tunisia has yet to win a game in the tournament, drawing all three in their group and needing a shootout to get past Ghana. Now they look to finally play up to their potential in the match that will live stream from Cairo.

Madagascar Coach Nicolas Dupuis insists that his team feels no pressure, because they entered the tournament with zero expectations, according to Goal.com.
“All teams are better on paper than us. We don’t have any stars in our team. The star is the team,” Dupuis said on Wednesday. “We have a real team of friends but also with talented players, who are very good but perhaps not stars.”
A free-flowing attack resulting in seven goals in their four games, per Futaa.com, making the Barea the second-highest scoring team in the tournament, has been the key to Madagascar’s run so far.
