Tunisia will hope that France's fine start to the 2022 World Cup can boost their chances of also reaching the knockout stages.
Jalel Kadri's side need a win over the world champions to stand any chance of progressing, having picked up just one point so far.
And, fortunately, they could be coming up against a weakened France team, with Didier Deschamps suggesting the luxury of rotation will be available to him after two victories from two games.
The Les Bleus coach said: "For us, it's ideal, we have six points so we are sure to qualify after two matches. We will appreciate that before the next game in four days. It brings peace, the assurance that we qualify.
"We have a very high chance of finishing first [in Group D] because our goal difference is much better than Australia's, so we're in the perfect position."
Below are the projected lineups for both teams.
Tunisia vs France lineups
Deschamps looks likely to make a number of changes for the clash with Tunisia, though he could stop short of resting star man Kylian Mbappe.
Asked by one journalist if the striker will demand to start, Deschamps hit back by saying: "His fitness is fine, so we don't need to manage that. So you are saying we have to manage his ego?
"What do you know about that? I know but you don't. Kylian doesn't have a big ego, that's not true.
"He's a key player but he's a team player. Of course, he's a star but he's not 18 years old anymore, he's more experienced.
"He wants to play tomorrow but not all of them can start the match, that's normal."
Tunisia predicted starting 11
Tunisia (3-4-2-1, right to left): 16. Dahmen (GK) — 6. Bronn, 4. Meriah, 3. Talbi — 21. Kechrida, 17. Skhiri, 8. Mejbri, 24. Abdi — 23. Sliti, 10. Khazri — 9. Jebali
- Injuries: None
- Suspensions: None
Tunisia have no fresh injury concerns to consider but may make a change on the right-hand side of their defence.
Mohamed Drager came off at halftime against Australia and so Wajdi Kechrida may be in line to replace him at the back.
France predicted starting 11
France (4-2-3-1, right to left): 1. Lloris (GK) – 2. Pavard, 24. Konate, 17. Saliba, 25. Camavinga – 6. Guendouzi, 14. Rabiot – 20. Coman, 7. Griezmann, 10. Mbappe – 26. Thuram
- Injured: Benzema, L. Hernandez, Areola
- Suspended: none
With Lucas Hernandez out of the rest of the tournament and his brother, Theo, the only left-back remaining in the squad, Eduardo Camavinga is being tipped as the surprise rotational choice in that position.
Elsewhere, Ibrahima Konate and William Saliba could be paired in a much-changed backline, while there may be chances for Kingsley Coman and Marcus Thuram up top.
