Morocco v Iran World Cup betting guide

Posted on: 5th June 2018

[odds sport=”football” league=”world-cup” event=”morocco-vs-iran”]

While many football fans will be eschewing this Group B clash in favour of settling down for Portugal v Spain later on Friday, this clash between the two so-called underdogs looks like a clash where we can make some money.

Morocco are defensively excellent if their African World Cup qualifying campaign is any sort of yardstick. The Atlas Lions won three and drew three of their matches; although the astonishing stat is that they scored eleven goals and conceded none. That’s right, no goals at all.

The other teams in the group were Ivory Coast, Gabon and Mali, so we’re not talking about inferior sides here. Herve Renard’s side will look upon this match as a perfect chance to get a platform of three points ahead of the crunch clash against Portugal.

As for Iran, they won’t be a pushover either. After ten games played in the final Asian qualifying phase, just two goals were conceded and it’s a testament to Carlos Queiroz’s excellent management of Team Melli that they are now built on such solid foundations.

So we have two teams who have qualified because defence is a strength of theirs. So it naturally follows that we can profit from betting on a low-scoring encounter.

Throw a dart at No Goalscorer for this clash, while Under 1.5 Goals looks a good price and we can also side with the draw for good measure.

No Goalscorer @ 9/2 with bet365
Under 1.5 Goals @ 11/8 with BetVictor
Draw @ 19/10 with bet365
