Morocco vs Iran Betting Tips, Predictions and Preview

Morocco vs Iran predictions and betting tips for the World Cup 2018 Group B fixture on Friday 15th June at 4pm. Can Morocco come out on top in their opening Group B encounter, or will Carlos Queiroz’ Iran serve to throw a spanner in the works?

It may not be the most glamerous of the opening weekend’s World Cup fixtures, but this is a very important match in Group B. Portugal and Spain are expected to fill the top two spots but both Morocco and Iran will be hoping to capitalise on any shock results. It could be that the loser of this match is effectively out of the World Cup after one match, given that beating Portugal and Spain is unlikely. See our Morocco vs Iran predictions below.

Morocco vs Iran Betting Preview

Big things are expected of the 2018 World Cup in Russia this summer, especially among Group B – a stage in which both Portugal and Spain are set to introduce themselves in the most electrifying of circumstances. And whilst their remaining Group B opposition, the lesser known sporting outfits of Morocco and Iran, don’t exactly arrive as two of the most exciting teams capable of setting the 2018 World Cup alight, this particular fixture has the potential to captivate in equally promising fashion. The odds for Morocco to beat Iran are 5/4 with Ladbrokes, the draw is 19/10 and the odds for Iran to win are 27/10. You can use the Ladbrokes free bet of £50 to bet any of these odds. Judging by our predictions below, this will be a low scoring match so under 2.5 goals is a rather obvious bet but the odds are only 4/11. Over 2.5 goals is 21/10 with bet365. In the correct score betting odds for Morocco vs Iran, a 1-0 win for Morocco is favourite and the odds are 5/1 with Paddy Power.

Morocco vs Iran Predictions

The leading goal-scorer among the Dutch top-flight currently arrives in the form of Iran’s Alireza Jahanbakhsh. A quick-footed front-man with bags of potential inside the final third, AZ Alkmaar’s 24-year-old striker can seemingly do no wrong right about now. With 18 goals in all competitions so far this season, the recent praise surrounding Jahanbakhsh remains obviously well placed.

Although little is known of Alireza Jahanbakhsh outside the Dutch Eredivisie, perhaps the in-form Iranian could prove a shrewd anytime scorer among this opening Group B encounter. His vision within attacking areas of the pitch has been credited on several isolated occasions, whilst his knack of finding the back of the net seems to be progressing positively with every passing week. When it comes to our Morocco vs Iran predictions at the World Cup, this is one man who could possibly turn a few heads among World Cup Group B predictions this summer. The odds for Alireza Jahanbakhsh to score anytime are 4/1 with Betway.

Moroccan Might

If Morocco are known for one thing and one thing only among the world of high stakes international football, it would be their ability to remain tight and resolute at the back in even the most testing of scenarios.

Both Romain Saiss and former West Ham centre-back Manuel Da Costa deserve credit for their recent exploits among Herve Renard’s squad, whilst of course, the vastly experienced Mehdi Benatia will also cause problems for any high minded attackers seeking to cause damage among the Moroccan back-line. The French-born defender could possibly captain his nation to greater fortunes whilst operating at the 2018 World Cup this summer.


Morocco vs Iran Correct Score Predictions

Even without Munir on board however, Morocco arguably have enough attacking power to register an opening Group B win against their Iranian opposition. With Sofiane Boufal and Younes Belhanda both vying for a place among the attacking front-line. In our Morocco vs Iran predictions we’re going to side with there being goals in this match and go with a 2-1 Morocco victory. They have some decent attacking options and with our anytime scorer bet coming from the Iranian side, we’re predicting a 2-1 win for Morocco in this opening Group B World Cup fixture.
