Tunisia have booked their place in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations finals after playing out a goalless draw with bottom side Botswana in Gaborone.
The North Africans have retained their position at the top of Group G with 11 points, five ahead of second-placed Senegal who visit Egypt a day later.
A home win for Egypt on Saturday would help them overtake second spot from Senegal though, before visiting Tunisia in the ultimate group game five days later.
Should Egypt, who are currently third of their group with six points, beat Senegal – they would need to avoid a draw in Tunisia to keep their African qualification hopes alive.
Seven-time record champions Egypt have failed to qualify for the Africa's top competition in 2012 and 2013.
