The IRA vs MOR match preview –
Morroco and Iran will play Match 3 in the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia. They will kickstart the first game of Group B.
This is a clash between two teams who are at the opposite ends of their spectrums when it comes to the form. Being clubbed in the group with Portugal and Spain, this is a crucial game between the two teams who aren’t even expected to get out of the group.
However, the World Cup has always sprung some surprises and if either of the teams wants to be the one to conjure it, a win here will play a pivotal role.
Morocco is coming into this game on the back of an 18-game streak where they haven’t lost a game. This achievement in itself is commendable and their coach Herve Renard is adept at tactically tweaking the team. The defensive solidity given by Mehdi Bentaia and co gives the attacking players the freedom to express themselves and be lethal on the counter-attack. Hakim Ziyech is one of the players to look out, as the 25-year-old has had a phenomenal season with Ajax in the Dutch league. He will want to showcase why his hype is real.
Iran is in a tough spot. Even though they have a young squad of talented players, their team hasn’t played enough matches for the management to gauge the strengths and weaknesses. They are one of the fiercest teams in defence and don’t let teams dissect them, With the likes of Sardar Azmoun and Alireza Jahanbakhsh the team doesn’t lack attacking prowess.

IRA vs MOR recent form (Last six matches)
Iran –L W W L W W
Iran has only played two games in their preparation for the FIFA World Cup 2018. Their previous four games had a gap of two months in them and this is a problem for the team. A bizarre decision by the management to limit the number of international friendly games and resting players can always backfire. They still are one of the fiercest sides from the Asian continent and can never be underestimated.
Morocco– W W D W W W
The African side has had a completely opposite preparation for the World Cup. They are in fact unbeaten in their last 18 games. Playing against gritty European sides, Morocco has utilised the time given to them well.
IRA vs MOR Head to head
Iran Won – X

The 23-year old plays in the Russian league with Rubin Kazan and is said to be the heir to the throne left by Iran’s famous striker Ali Daei.

IRA vs MOR Odds Makers Predictions:
IRA vs MOR Dream 11 Team Predictions-
Sardar Azmoun, Alireza Jahanbakhsh, Hakim Ziyech and Mehdi Benatia are expected to start the game. These are two pairs who are integral to their teams and will be involved in the majority of the action. Morocco’s striker options are many, hence no set forward has nailed that position. That’s why to be on the safe side we have taken both strikers in either of the teams to get the best outcome.
