Iran vs Spain | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
After 20 years of waiting, Iran finally won a game at the World Cup tournament. And what a win that was. Ryad Boudebouz scored an own goal, with a minute to go, and shocked the majority of fans around the globe. Sant Pauli player surely provided a long-lasting memory for all the football fans. Now, the Persian Stars are after sensation, and they are dreaming of staying unbeaten against the Red Fury. The Spaniards played only a draw against Portugal, despite being dominant and having the lead at some point after coming back from behind twice.
Who could have anticipated that Iran is going to be at the top of Group B after the opening match? We are sure that just a few people saw that coming. For them, one point from this clash is like victory. With a result like that, they would still be in the first two places, which are leading to the knockout stage. Spain, however, needs to win in order to do the same thing. The Red Fury lost two valuable points against Portugal explicitly because of Fernando Hierro, who was not brave enough to finish the game as he should have. Also, we have to add, that Ronaldo produced magic in that game and that he is also creditable for the final outcome
Iran had a lot of luck against Morocco, but we can’t say that they didn’t deserve it. The Middle Eastern team was decisive and stubborn throughout the whole 90 minutes, and in a couple of situations they had excellent chances to score, but strikers failed to deliver the final punch. Possession of the ball was on the side of their rivals, while the Iranians waited for counter-attacks, and in several occasions, they really had good opportunities from them. The same tactics will be seen against Spain also because they know that the Red Fury is the best in the world when it comes to controlling the ball. Carlos Queiroz’s boys will wait for set pieces, counter-attacks, and mistakes of the Spanish defenders.
Hierro is not Lopetegui, and the difference has been seen this Friday. The famous defender acted like the majority of rookies and started defending even though his team dominated on the pitch, and didn’t take any pressure at a time. His decisions ruined one thing in which Spain is the best in among all the selections, and that is dictating the tempo of the play. However, Iran is not Portugal, and they do not have Ronaldo, and Hierro shouldn’t make any special tactics, which means that the Red Fury has to attack right from the start. Isco was the best player in the Spanish squad, and Real Madrid’s forward might explode in this tournament. Besides him, Diego Costa once again proved that he is among the best strikers in the world, with two fantastic goals.

Iran vs Spain Top Betting Tip: Spain (3:0)
The Spaniards were dominant against Portugal, and only because of their coach, they failed to pick up all three points. We are mentioning Hierro all the time, but simply he is the only man to blame for the result. Because of that, Spain is going to unleash all of their rages on Iran, who is not even near them when looking at the overall quality. We didn’t mean to be offensive, but it is the reality. The world champs from 2010, have much better players in all positions on the pitch. So, the triumph of the Red Fury is certain, and we predict an easy win of Iniesta’s guys, 0:3.
