Lions of the Atlas are set as slight favourites, but we’d honestly give similar chances to each of these two outfits to grab the spoils on the day. Both teams were super impressive defensively during their respective qualifying campaigns. Morocco topped their group in the final round of the African WC Qualifications without conceding a single goal in six matches. Their counterparts broke FIFA WC Qualifications record by keeping 12 consecutive clean sheets en route to booking tickets to Russia 2018 in the Asian zone.

Morocco vs Iran Predictions

Iran ended the previous term’s run in a poor fashion after clinching just one point in the group with Argentina, Nigeria and Bosnia-Herzegovina. Nevertheless, they arrived in Russia with a much more talented squad led the Portuguese expert Carlos Queiroz. All eyes will be on Eredivisie’s top scorer Alireza Jahanbakhsh who will have a great companion up front in the like of Karim Ansarifard who bagged 17 goals for Olympiacos this season.
