Iran v Portugal- World Cup 2018

Iran vs Portugal World Cup Prediction 25th June 2018 – 7.00 p.m

This is a bit of a winner takes all scenario so that should make for a very interesting contest here. The winner of this will be guaranteed a place in the round of sixteen and after the way Iran played against Spain in their last match, there is a hint that they could really trouble Portugal in this one. All that the Europeans do need is a point out of the game to ensure that they move through. Will Cristiano Ronaldo be able to provide for his country once again?

Iran vs Portugal Odds*

Portugal 7/10
Draw 11/4
Iran 5/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on June 22nd, 2018 at 9:32 p.m.)

Who will win Iran vs Portugal?

Iran were so brave and so committed against Spain that if they play the same way against Portugal then they could well be in this game. Portugal are not the most adventurous of sides and they had their problems against Morocco. Could Iran produce something special and cause a huge upset in knocking out the European champion?

Brave Iranians to challenge Euro champions

Iran look as if they are not going to go away quietly because they produced a wonderfully spirited and brave performance against Spain in their second group stage match. They threw themselves into a massive defensive effort but they also had their chances going forward to have gotten a draw out of the game. Now if they can replicate that kind of performance they would well be in the frame against Portugal and this is a game in which they have nothing to lose. A draw is not good enough for them, they have to win to get through to the knockout phase. An Iran-Draw double-chance option at 6/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 22nd, 2018 at 9:32 p.m.) offers the coverage of backing the underdogs in this game to avoid defeat.

Iran have produced a W4 L2 record in their last six games and because they have come up with just the one goal so far, under 2.5 goals at bet365 is a good Iran v Portugal betting tip at 8/15 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 22nd, 2018 at 9:32 p.m.). They showed against Spain how well coach Carlos Queiroz has them drilled in defensive duties and that has carried them such a long way. Iran are W8 D1 L3 in their last twelve games. Can they balance throwing bodies forward and watching out for Cristiano Ronaldo at the same?

Can Ronaldo carry Portugal through?

Portugal have relied on Cristiano Ronaldo and what a player to rest your hopes on. After his hat-trick against Spain in Portugal’s group opener, he netted early against Morocco in their second game. To be fair, with Morocco getting at Portugal, Ronaldo was non-existent for the rest of the match. But it was enough to get Portugal the win and leaves Ronaldo in the hunt for the Golden Boot. For our Iran v Portugal predictions Ronaldo as the first goalscorer favourite at 5/2 with bet365* (Betting Odds were taken from June 22nd, 2018 at 9:32 p.m.) is an obvious one.

Portugal will be concerned that they were so badly second best to Morocco in their second fixture but the positive from that is that they didn’t break. They don’t break very often to be fair and Portugal are W3 D4 L1 in their last eight. The draw at 11/4 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 22nd, 2018 at 9:32 p.m.) in the match outright for this fixture just appeals so much with the European champions having drawn three of their last four. Do they have the winning touch? They have to better whatever Spain manage against Morocco to top this group and that includes goal difference as well. A draw gets Portugal to the next round, a loss and they will be suffering a shock early exit.

Iran vs Portugal Prediction

At the end of the day, we don’t see Iran getting the better of Portugal, but we are going to back them in our Iran v Portugal prediction to avoid defeat. They are so well drilled at the back and with Portugal pretty much a one-man show in Ronaldo, the draw in the match outright appeals.
