Bosnia v Iran Betting Preview – World Cup 2014

This isn’t quite a dead rubber, because surprisingly, it is Iran who would still make it through to the knockout stage. They would need to beat Bosnia and hope that Argentina beat Nigeria in the other group match. However, that may not be too likely, with Iran not having scored a goal in the competition yet.

Iran opened with 0-0 draw against Nigeria and then almost, almost hung on to do the same against Argentina. However, they were undone in that match by a brilliant Lionel Messi goal. But the Iranians earned themselves some huge credit, and fans, as they worked hard and they truthfully deserved a point out of the game. Iran can defend but the question is whether or not they have the firepower in them to go and get the win that they need.

Probably not. Iran are the side at the finals who qualified with the fewest amount of goals conceded. But they don’t score many. They have managed just three goals in their last six matches played now, although they have taken good draws against Belarus, Montenegro and Nigeria in that run of form this year. Their best options going forward are Reza Ghoochannejhad at 11/4 and Ashkan Dejagah in the anytime goalscorer market. So Iran are resistant, that is for sure, but it is that lack of firepower which is in question.

After losing their opener against Argentina, Bosnia were favourites to go and beat Nigeria in their second match. However, the Africans turned up at the party, scored a fantastic goal to which Bosnia surprisingly had no reply. Edin Dzeko is even money favourite in the anytime goalscorer market alongside Vedad Ibisevic. This game isn’t likely to produce a lot of goals, not with Iran, so look under 2.5 goals for it. Both are struggling for goals, so can Iran find that magical winner? Bosnia making changes to their starting eleven may offer the underdogs as small window.
