Check out our Wales vs Iran prediction for the upcoming match the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar.
Rob Page‘s Wales side rescued a point against USA in their opening fixture, while Iran were on the end of a 6-2 pummelling at the hands of England as their World Cup campaign began in the worst possible fashion.
Hopes will be higher of picking up points against Wales, although both sides may be going into the game uncertain of what to expect with the two having only previously met on one occasion.
Iran will aim to put on a much better performance after being dismantled from England. While their attack looked good at times, their defense exposed them. The Iranian team will have to put on a compact defensive display otherwise it will be a long match.
Kick off: 3:30pm (IST), 10:00am (GMT)
Wales form (all comps): D-L-L-L-D
Iran form (all comps): L-W-D-W-L
Players to Watch
Mehdi Taremi was the lone bright point for Iran in the opening encounter. The Porto striker scored two goals and fought the battle alone against big English defenders. He has been on a great run of form lately but will need a big hand from other players if Iran want to progress to the next round.
A glimpse of how Gareth Bale is likely to fire up things at the 2022 World Cup was evident in the first match of the tournament. The LA Galaxy forward helped Wales to fight their way back into the game by providing the attacking spark they needed. In this game in particular, Bale will be confident of tumbling Iran’s defense.
