Bad operation for Mali which receives Tunisia in Bamako on the occasion of the first leg of the playoffs of the World Cup 2022.
While the Eagles must win at home to reassure themselves before the return match, they are instead led at the break by 1-0.
Moussa Sissako was the most unfortunate Malian during this first half. After scoring an own goal in the 36th minute, allowing Tunisia to take the lead, the central defender will be sent off in the 40th minute after a red card following a foul.
At halftime, it is therefore Tunisia that leads away and is well on its way to obtaining a good result before the return match that it hosts at home next Tuesday.
