The Tunisia forward believes the positive stats Ghana has over his country will not be taken into account on Monday’s match.

Tomorrow Tunisia and Ghana will play in the Round of 16 match of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

Historically the Black Stars have been successful against the Cartage Eagles.

But according to Tunisia forward Yassine Khenissi, stats won’t play tomorrow.

“I believe in my team and they will perform well. Football now doesn’t depend on history,” he told reporters as quoted by Goal.

“We’re not the favorites after the former champions and the tournament hosts exited the tournament, as well as Morocco.”

“As you see in this competition, there are no favorites but we will give our best to qualify,” he added.

“We don’t think about the group stage matches.”

“Tomorrow you’ll see a fresh face for the national team and all the players are united to qualify the Tunisian national team,” he concluded.
