Iran v Spain- World Cup 2018

Iran vs Spain World Cup Prediction 20th June 2018 – 7.00 p.m
(Full time: 0:1 – goals: Costa 54′)

A win for Spain will put them back on track after their failure to beat Portugal in their opening match. The 3-3 draw that they played out with their neighbours isn’t really anything that’s going to trip them up and they will be looking for goals in this one to try and hit the top of the pile. Iran produced a dramatic late win over Morocco in their opener despite being second best to the Africans for most of the match. They are the group leaders going into the second round of group stage matches, a point would leave this group wide open.

Iran vs Spain Odds*

Who will win Iran vs Spain?

There is likely to be the one winner in this one and that is obviously Spain. Despite a slow start against Portugal, there wasn’t too much wrong with Spain’s performance in their opening match and they looked a big threat going forward. Consider that an awful goalkeeping mistake and penalty saw them concede two of their three goals against their Iberian rivals. Iran enjoyed their day against Morocco but our predictions for Iran v Spain have the underdogs coming up a long way short.

Long 90 minutes ahead for Iran

The Iranians will likely go into this game hoping to defend their way to a point which would leave them in a good position to qualify. They would be left with facing Portugal in their final group stage match. They got their opening win over Morocco through a bit of luck deep into stoppage time, but they did, to their credit look lively in counter-attacking. Even if they had not have picked up three points in their opening game they would sit back in this one and that is because Spain can naturally do a lot of damage to them. Iran are W3 L2 in their last five games played and are on a five-match scoring streak. But our predictions for Iran v Spain betting doesn’t have them breaching the Spanish defence and you have 3/10 odds at bet365 on both teams not to score to back that up* (Betting Odds were taken on June 18th, 2018 at 4:39 p.m.). While their natural tendency is to play on the break, they are likely to see so little of the ball that getting any head of steam up is going to be extremely difficult.

Focused Spain to push for goals

With that draw between Portugal and Spain, it could well end up that Group B will be settled on goal difference between the two European sides so Spain needs to go and push for goals. They looked very good going forward in the second half of their game against the Portuguese and they shouldn’t have too much trouble getting past Iran’s defence. The sooner they get their initial goal on the board, the easier things in the match will become for them. In the bet365 correct score market for our Iran v Spain predictions were are looking at 5/1 odds on a Spain 3-0 option* (Betting Odds were taken on June 18th, 2018 at 4:39 p.m.). Diego Costa looked a real handful up front for them and he got a couple of goals for himself against Portugal and he is the 3/1 first goalscorer favourite* (Betting Odds were taken on June 18th, 2018 at 4:39 p.m.) which is also well worth considering. Spain are going to control possession for very long periods of this game and even though they have shipped nine goals in their last six games (one clean sheet) they are likely to keep their opponents at bay.

Iran vs Spain Prediction

For our Iran vs Spain prediction, we can’t see the underdogs getting anything out of this. Aside from a slow start, Spain looked fine in their opener and their defence won’t be threatened as much as it was by Cristiano Ronaldo. Look for a Spain/Spain half time/full time option.
