104' 

Ghana have had the better of it once more, but seem to have lapsed back into second gear after starting ET with a much higher tempo.

101' 

As far as ET goes, this has been a decent half. Both sides have had a couple of decent moments.

99'

The Ghana corner comes to nothing and Tunisia breathe a sigh of relief. They are less than 10 minutes away from the last eight and their first knockout win since 2004.

TUNISIA CHANGE: Sliti on for Msakni.

79' 

Wakaso cuts in from the right and curls in a low 25-yard shot that skims the far post via the hand of Hassen.

78' 

Ghana pressing but they really need to raise their tempo. They've been in second gear for much of this game.

76' 

This is an old fashioned smash and grab from Tunisia. Can Ghana get themselves out of trouble? The clock is ticking...

GOAL! Khenissi flashes a first-time shot in via a defender and the near post from Kechrida's low cross from the right.

72' 

Fair to say Khazri has made a really positive impact on Tunisia. His run led to the first chance and then his delivery was almost nodded home by Khenissi.

71' 

OFF THE POST! Khenissi meets a right-wing delivery but sees his header crash back off the woodwork.

70' 

Khazri wriggles to the right byline and cuts it back for Khenissi, who sees his shot on the stretch hit Nuhu on the hand and roll wide. Tunisia shout for a penalty but the referee isn't interested.

GHANA CHANGE: Wahbi Khazri on for Badri.

67' 

Badri motors down the right and fires in a dangerous ball into the box. Ghana don't deal it with it initially, but it falls kindly for them and they hack it away.

65' 

Mubarak teases a deep free kick towards Boye, but a Tunisian head powers it to safety.

63' 

Ghana continue to dictate without really upping the tempo. The Black Stars are remaining patient, but it's not making for much of a spectacle.

61' 
59' 

Tunisia content to sit deep and hope for a set piece or a rare moment of quality on the break. You sense they would be happy with penalties even at this early juncture.

57' 

Ghana continue to prove but it's been a very frustrating night for their front men so far.

54' 

Khenissi attempts to flick a header from a left-wing corner towards goal, but can't connect properly. It hits Boye instead and loops just wide of the far post.

52' 

Ghana keep the pressure on but can't make anything of a succession of corners.

51' 

Owusu sees a fizzing volley from the edge of the box brilliantly blocked. He then gets involved in the build up once more and races in from the right flank before seeing a low effort from a very narrow angle on the byline beaten away by Hassen.

42' 

GHANA GOAL CHALKED OFF! The Black Stars keep a corner alive. Jordan Ayew cuts it back from the right for Andre Ayew, who brilliantly flicks home. There's confusion over why it's been disallowed, but the referee seems quite convinced.

40' 

Acquah pulls the trigger from 30 yards and sees Hassen push it to safety. The effort was going wide, so that was a strange decision from the keeper.

38' 

Both sides breaking up play with niggling fouls. There's no real pattern or rhythm to the contest, which probably suits Tunisia more than Ghana.

34' 

It's been a disappointing spectacle so far. We need a goal!

Ghana registered four and conceded twice in the group stage while Tunisia have netted twice and let in the same number of goals.

32' 

RANDOM STAT: This is Ghana's 93rd match at the tournament. The Black Stars have won 52 and lost 20, scoring 123 goals along the way.

30' 

Boye is back in the mix and looks fine to continue.

29' 

Play halted as Boye receives the magic sponge treatment. He's carried off on a stretcher, but didn't seem to need it!

27' 

POSSESSION: Tunisia 59 per cent - Ghana 41 per cent.

25' 

Partey takes advantage of some fine tackling by Acquah to drive forward and drill a 25-yard strike over the top.

23' 

Khenissi flicks on a right-wing corner, but Thomas Partey somehow sticks out an important leg to divert it to safety with Ellyes Skhiri flying in for what had looked like a certain tap-in.

22' 
Copa África 2019, Ghana-Túnez
20' 

STAT: Ghana have lost seven of their last 11 knockout stage matches at Afcon.

18' 

STAT: Andre Ayew has been involved in 11 goals at Afcon (9 goals, 2 assists). That's more than any other player since Opta started analysing stats at the competition in 2010.

16' 

OFF THE POST! Kasim Nuhu sees a firm header from a right-wing set piece come back off the post. Andre Ayew has a pop from the rebound, but Hassen makes a smart save to deny him.

14' 

Ghana have had a succession of set pieces, but haven't been able to create anything from them.

10' 

Msakni makes a clumsy tackle on Acquah and gives away a dangerous free kick on the right flank.

8' 

CLOSE! Khenissi races into the area to latch on to a lovely through pass from Youssef Msakni, but can't get a shot away as Yiadom comes flying back to make a vital last-ditch tackle.

6' 

DID YOU KNOW? Tunisia have lost their last five knockout matches at Afcon. Their last victory outside the group stage was back in 2004 when they were the host nation.

4' 

Tunisia have had the edge in the very early stages of this one. Ghana not afraid to go into challenges at full throttle either. The referee has already told Black Stars skipper, Andre Ayew to tell his players to keep it clean.

3' 

HEAD-TO-HEAD at Afcon: Ghana have won six of the seven meetings with Tunisia. The other match was drawn.

The last time they met at this tournament was in 2012 when Ghana prevailed 2-1 after extra time in a tight quarter-final encounter.

2' 

Tunisia's chance have been hit by the news their main man, Wahbi Khazri's injury keeps him out of the starting XI. Anice Badri has come into the side. Can he make an impact, and is Khazri fit enough to make an appearance off the bench if needed late on?

KICK OFF! Tunisia get the final last 16 clash of the 2019 Afcon underway.

19.55 

Tunisia forward Taha Yassine Khenissi (pictured left for his club, ES de Tunis): "We face Ghana with one aim, which is winning and qualifying. We don't think about the group matches. You'll see a fresh face for the national team and all the players are united to qualify the national team."

Tunisia coach, Alain Giresse: "We have played three games so far. Our performance was not good in the beginning but we have improved some aspects. We have to learn our lessons and show a strong game against the Black Stars."

19.45 

Ghana coach, James Kwesi Appiah: "Right from day one, I said you can never underrate any team. The fact that Egypt and Cameroon are out should tell you what is happening. In football nowadays, you don't have to rely on past achievement so if we have had the upper hand over Tunisia doesn't mean it is going to be easy."

The winner of this contest will face Madagascar in the last eight after the surprise package beat DR Congo on penalties after a 2-2 draw in their last 16 clash.
