Preview:

Tunisia coach Roger Lemerre wants his players to continue their good Cup of Nations form against Guinea despite his side having qualified for the last eight.

"We want to keep this run going, to keep the players' confidence up," said Lemerre.

Forward Mohamed Jedidi will be out for the rest of the tournament with a badly twisted ankle, but Brazilian-born defender Clayton will be fit for training within the next week.

Paris St Germain midfielder Slim Benachour, suspended for the win over Congo after being red carded against Rwanda, may return to the starting line-up.

Guinea need only a draw to qualify from Group A.

Coach Michel Dussuyer realises his team gave away a perfect opportunity to secure their last-eight berth when they allowed Rwanda to equalise with just seconds remaining, on Wednesday.

"It is very disappointing," said Dussuyer.

"We almost had qualification for the quarter-finals sewn up but now we must forget this very quickly and prepare Tunisia."

Guinea are set to name an unchanged team with former Liverpool and West Ham striker Titi Camara, leading the attack.

53rd minute: Still 0-0, very slow game. Both teams seem to be happy with the draw because they will go through to the quarter-finals if the score remains like this.

The match is now more exciting. Guinea are looking for the equalizer. I think if Rwanda beat DR Congo 1-0 and Tunisia wins 2-0 then Guinea are out!

20 minute left.

Yes, they've won twice with no problem against Kenya and Burkina Faso, they'll face Senegal next but they've already qualified. Mali were a good team but they got stronger now after Kanoute joined their squad.

83rd minute: Goal Guinea! Mistake from a Tunisian defender, Titi Camara takes advantage of that and scores.

Tunisia 1 Guinea 1

FT: Tunisia 1 Guinea 1

Both teams are through. Next round Tunisia will face the second placed team from Group B (Mali, Senegal, Burkina Faso) while Guinea plays the winner of Group B.
