Morocco vs Iran – World Cup Prediction
In the match of the 1st round of this group B from the 2018 World Cup in Russia, in this Saturday’s match, in the city of St. Petersburg, in the St Petersburg Stadium, the selection of Morocco, and the selection of Iran, in a game that will be the first between these two teams in their history.
The formation of Morocco, guided by Hervé Renard, enters this first day of his group in the World Cup as a team which is expected to be quite capable and to practice a very offensive and positive football, well in the image of what has happened in his last matches, both in terms of the friendly games and also in the official events (still in memory the categorical triumph, in the final of the CAN, 4-0), being sure that the North- Africans will give much work to both Portugal and Spain in these three days, such is the individual and collective quality on the part of the Moroccans.
The Iran team, led by Carlos Queiroz, is clearly the weakest team in Group B and one of the weakest in this World Championship, having in his favor the fact of having an experienced coach and having a team very valuable in collective terms, something that could be much more important than the stars that Portugal, Spain and even the selection of Morocco have in its squad. In principle it is expected a compact set defensively and dangerous in the counterattack.
Although Morocco is one of the teams that can get more enthusiastic about this event, such is the quality of its football, the truth is that in this game we also have a selection of Iran that is very strong in defensive terms, which should disrupt Africans’ ability in offensive terms (though not in terms of ball possession).
Given these factors, I believe that we will have here a selection of Morocco that is very dominating on several levels, but with problems in penetrating the defense of the Iranians, which should be quite competent and rigid. That way, I believe we have few goals in this game
Prediction of the Day: At least 2 goals
