Wales vs Iran: Preview and predictions

Wales vs Iran
FIFA World Cup
Group B
25th November 2022
Ahmad bin Ali Stadium

Preview

In a crucial Group B game, Wales will take on the lowest-ranked team in the group, Iran. A win for either side in this game would give them a great chance of earning a place in the knockout rounds, while a draw or loss will leave them extremely vulnerable.

Wales, after clinching a late point against the United States, know the win will be important in this game, but so will the goal difference. If they can pull off a win, they’ll want to score the goals hoping to gain a decisive advantage over the United States, who are also expected to win against Iran.

Pride is at stake for the Middle Eastern nation as even if they don’t qualify for the knockout rounds, a better result than the 6-2 defeat by England in their opening game would be a joy.

Team news

Wales

Wales head coach Rob Page will be worried Joe Allen has injury problems. The Swansea City man has not played since mid-September thanks to a hamstring injury and missed the game against USA. Ethan Ampadu and HarryWilson took over in midfield, although Ampadu took a hit himself and his current fitness is in doubt. Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey both struggled with fitness coming into the tournament but both played 90 minutes against the United States.

Iran

Iran will be concerned about the fitness of star attacker Sardar Azmun. Who has not played for Bayer Leverkusen since torn a hamstring in early October. He was only fit enough to play 13 minutes off the bench against England. Goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand suffered an ugly facial injury with what appeared to be a broken nose. And a concussion in a collision with a team-mate against England.

Wales vs Iran: Odds

Full time result: Wales @ 2.25 odds.

Gareth bale to score anytime @ 2.62 odds.
