PRE-MATCH ANALYSIS

The final match day in the group B will close up with two simultaneous games. In one of them Iran takes on Portugal, in what is essentially a straight shootout for qualification between the teams as bottom side Morocco is already eliminated. Will the Princes of Persia can resist to the reigning Europe’s champions?

The Iranians showed themselves to be formidable opponents in their first two matches, particularly impressing in defense. Their resilience was rewarded with a clean sheet against Morocco, while one mistake cost them against Spain. On the other hand, they were far more threatening going forward against La Roja, creating a number of clear-cut chances. Had they had a bit more luck, they could have scored more than the solitary goal they managed against Morocco.

It is no secret that this Portugal side revolves around Cristiano Ronaldo, to whom they are indebted for their four points to date. Having bagged a hat-trick to earn the European champions a share of the spoils against Spain, he hit the winner against Morocco to take his country a step closer to qualification. However, with A Selecção das Quinas determined to avoid a repeat of their group-stage exit at Brazil 2014, Ronaldo's team-mates know that they cannot afford to put all their eggs in the basket of their talismanic captain, lest he have an off day in front of goal.

Possible line-ups
IR Iran: Ali Beiranvand; Ehsan Haji Safi, Morteza Pouraliganji, Ramin Rezaeian, Majid Hosseini; Saeid Ezatolahi, Vahid Amiri, Omid Ebrahimi, Karim Ansarifard, Mehdi Taremi; Sardar Azmoun

Portugal: Rui Patricio; Pepe, Jose Fonte, Raphael Guerreiro; Cedric Soares, William Carvalho, Joao Moutinho, Bernardo Silva, Joao Mario; Goncalo Guedes, Cristiano Ronaldo

In their previous appearances at the competition, Iran's third game has not had much riding on it, but this time out, they are firmly in contention to qualify for the Round of 16. The players go into the game feeling motivated and confident. While Portugal and Ronaldo are the favorites on paper, IR Iran know that they can make history by reaching the knockout stage. The home side can rely on its strong defensive position that will allow to lose without a big difference. Hence, we predict Iran’s win with an Asian handicap of (+1) and call to stake with a remarkable coefficient of 1.80.
