Tunisia, as favourites, are awarded the 1st and 10th houses, both ruled by Jupiter in his own sign of Pisces (traditional rulership). Pisces is in the 1st house, giving a boost to the favourites (although this would be more beneficial if he was closer to the cusp).
Rivals Australia are signified by Mercury, Ruler of the opposing 7th and 4th houses. Mercury applies to the 10th house cusp (victory and success) but is too far away for this to be an effective testimony.
This chart is very similar to that of Argentina vs Saudi Arabia, which produced a shock win for Saudi Arabia, with Argentina expecting an easy victory.
However, there is one crucial difference: In the Argentina vs Saudi Arabia chart, Neptune (who Astrologer John Frawley observes often has a grudge against the favourites) was applying retrograde to conjunct the 1st house cusp. Here, Neptune is still retrograde, but separating from the 1st house cusp. This should lessen his potential for sabotage.
With Neptune moving out of the picture, and the support of Jupiter, this chart appears to favour Tunisia.
There is a footnote: Although the Moon makes no aspect to either Jupiter, Mercury or the Part of Fortune over the 5-degree orb usually considered effective for a 90-minute football match, there is an aspect beyond this orb, when the Moon conjuncts the antiscion of Mercury at 15 Capricorn 58. The longer the match strays into extra time, the greater Australia’s chances improve.
