Portugal will probably still be tussling for a place in the knockout stages in its third game of Group B. Iran may not have a single point, but will want to upset the Portuguese.

Why Should I Bet On Iran vs Portugal?

There will be a massive amount on the line when Iran meet Portugal at the Mordovia Arena. What looks like an easy enough win for Portugal on paper will surely be one of the toughest games they will experience at this World Cup. Iran showed against Spain that what they lack in star quality, they make up for in heart. William Hill has Portugal as the favourites at 1.67 and that is the smart bet to make.

Iran vs Portugal Preview

It’s a very simple equation for these teams, lose and it’s the end of the road at the World Cup. Portugal have relied on Cristiano Ronaldo for all of their goals so far and that will have to change at some stage, should they want to go all the way. The reliance on Ronaldo does leave Portugal vulnerable and they are coming up against a team that are the exact opposite. Iran’s team spirit is formidable and they are more than capable of upsetting the odds.

Iran vs Portugal Odds

Iran vs Portugal Score Prediction

Bet365 have a 1-0 Portugal win at 6.00 and that is a good bet with great value. Ronaldo seems to thrive when the pressure is on and the Real Madrid man could be the saviour yet again for Portugal.

Over/Under Prediction

This will be an intense battle between two sides that won’t give an inch. It will be a low scoring affair and Betstar has Under 2.5 Goals at 1.6.

Both Teams To Score Prediction

For all of Iran’s passion, they do lack that killer instinct in the final third and that means only Portugal are likely to get on the scoresheet. Both teams not to score is 1.66 with Ladbrokes.

Group Standings

As it stands, Group B is just too close to call with the two favourites Spain and Portugal set to progress but, for whatever reason, Iran just can’t be ignored and punters daren’t look away with a thrilling finale set to play out in Group B.
