Iran vs USA Predictions & Betting Tips (World Cup)

 by Ioannis |

The Al Thumama Stadium in Doha plays host to a fierce showdown between Iran and the USA for the last round of Group B. A historic battle that transcends way beyond football, yet will ultimately decide the fate of these two adversaries, both of which have a chance of qualification. The Iranian outfit beat Wales in their second game and are now second in the group on three points, a point ahead of the USA and two clear of Wales. The USA were equally impressive against England, containing their opponents to a 0-0 draw that leaves everything open ahead of this last group match.. A win for Iran will see them qualify and they would even top the group if England didn't beat Wales. However, a draw in this match would see both teams eliminated but only if Wales were to beat England. The USA can qualify with a win and would top the group if Wales beat England.

Form Analysis

Iran’s win over Wales was only surprising if you didn't watch the game. The Iranians were superior throughout, extremely well-organised in defence and struck the post twice while the game was still level. Wayne Hennesey’s sending off might have given them a helping hand, which they capitalised on expertly, with two late goals by Cheshmi and Rezaeian. Iran were also masters of controlling the game without the ball, ceding 62% of possession to the Welsh yet containing them to merely three shots on target. Carlos Queiroz’ side also managed to redeem themselves after their poor opener against England, while they have now kept clean sheets in five of their last seven games. The USA claimed a draw against England, which will feel like a win should they progress from their group. Besides facing a team boasting some of the best talent in the world, the Americans needed to get something out of this game and expertly shut their rivals out, also boasting the game’s greatest chance, courtesy of a Christian Pulisic thunderbolt free kick that struck the crossbar. On the downside, serious questions need to be raised with regards to the USA’s attacking capabilities. Gregg Belhalter’s side have now scored just two goals in their last five games. They have also scored more than once in one of their last seven games, against a lowly Grenada side. Thus, it remains to be seen how the USA would react if they were left chasing the game, also given that they only need the win to go through. On a historical note, Iran were pitted in the same group against the US National Team in the 1998 French World Cup, with the Iranians winning 2-1 yet both teams exiting the group.

Squad analysis

While Mehdi Taremi did not score this time, he was Iran’s talisman once again and spearheaded the team’s effort to score a late goal. He now boasts two goals and an assist in his two World Cup games, while his attacking pairing with Sardar Azmoun looks like it is paying off. On another positive note, the clean sheet was surely morale boosting for goalkeeper Hossein Hosseini, who conceded six goals in the opener after being subbed at the half hour mark yet should now be brimming with confidence ahead of this one. With regards to the American outfit, Christian Pulisic might have been poor against Wales, yet he showed his credentials against England, being the key orchestrator of American attacks as well as having the best chance of the game fall at his feet. Yunus Musah was also impressive for his second tournament game, with the Valencia ace adding another dimension to the USA’s creative midfield partnership with Weston McKennie.

Our Iran vs USA prediction

A fierce showdown is expected at the Al Thumama Stadium. Both sides know they will qualify if winning this game. A draw would see Iran qualify if Wales don't beat England.  Iran will have had a huge confidence boost after beating Wales but there is still work to be done to qualify. USA’s lacklustre away performances and difficulty to find the net may play into the hands of Iran. Back Iran’s double chance in this one. Given the tense nature of the game and the poor relationship between the two countries, backing the Over 0.5 red cards in the game would be another interesting bet to place.
