Iran vs Portugal Preview

Whilst this particular fixture looks to be a somewhat straightforward challenge for the Portuguese on paper, we all know just how troublesome Iran can prove upon the international scene, especially when it comes to keeping things tight and regimented at the back. Carlos Queiroz’s side were unlucky to lose out against Spain, and could once again showcase their famous determination with Portugal waiting in the wings.

Portugal meanwhile simply have to up their game if they are to be taken seriously among the knock-out stages of the tournament. Whilst most World Cup betting tips will be expecting to see this team prevail against Iran, anything could still happen among what is likely to prove a very highly contested Group B face-off. In other words, do not cast Iran aside without careful consideration.

 

Iran vs Portugal Predictions

Big Ronnie

It remains to be seen just where Portugal would be right now without the services of a certain Cristiano Ronaldo among their first-team fold. The in-form Real Madrid man has scored every Portuguese goal at World Cup 2018 thus far, proving beyond all reasonable doubt just how prolific he can prove upon the grandest stage of all.

From here, it seems only reasonable that Ronaldo will impress further. Although his performances must continue for Portugal to really assert their dominance among this summer’s ongoing competition, the 33-year-old forward deserves credit as arguably the most influential player currently operating in Russia, whilst also representing an opportune anytime scorer in line with our latest Iran vs Portugal predictions at the World Cup.

 

Organisation and Spirit

Iran’s manager deserves huge amounts of credit heading into this final group-stage clash. Carlos Queiroz has installed an unflappable sense of determination within the Iranian starting XI, particularly when it comes to their ever impressive defensive back-line. Although there are several more prominent and widely recognised centre-backs playing in Russia this summer, Iran seemingly play host to a rather underrated pair in both Majid Hosseini and Morteza Pouraliganji.

Whilst many World Cup betting tips are expecting this particular fixture to culminate in Portugal’s favour, expect Iran to give their final Group B opposition a rather tough test when all is said and done. Despite their apparent lack of pedigree upon the global stage, Iran certainly know how to keep things organised when defending oncoming attacks, and for this they deserve due acclaim.

 

Portugal for the win

That said, Portugal should ultimately come out on top here. They have the players to break through the Iranian defense no matter how tough a test they are given, whilst possessing more than enough know-how to get the job completed in a smooth and straightforward manner. Cristiano Ronaldo and co. will learn from their previous two Group B encounters, and seek to finish off the Iranians in direct fashion.

Iran will likely give Portugal a decent run for their money, especially if Fernando Santos’ frontmen are not at the very top of their game, but even with this particular notion in mind, we are expecting another slim 1-0 victory for the Portuguese  in our Iran vs Portugal predictions. It may not be a match that lives on in infamy, yet in the end, a win is all that really matters for Portugal here.
