The IRN vs ESP match preview –
Iran and Spain clash with each other in the third game of Group B in the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia.
Iran created history against Morocco as they registered their second ever win in the World Cup history. Regardless that it came from an own goal from Aziz Bouhaddouz who tried to head the ball away from the goal.
The team showed defensive solidity and smothered their African opponents. Even though Morocco had 68% of the possession, the Asian side came out on top, albeit through a lucky incident.
Sardar Azmoun, Alireza Jahanbakhsh and Karim Ansarifard will be leading the attacking lineup one more time, but in their next opponents, they will require divine intervention for a positive result.
Spain has already started this tournament on the backfoot. The victory was all but set, only for the magnificent Cristiano Ronaldo to clinch a draw. Spain would have been wounded by this turn of the result and will be letting their intent know one more time about how serious they about this competition.
The media had the news of their former coach the majority of the time, but those talks have simmered down since the first game. The players seemed to be fine in their mentality and were playing fluid football. An ominous sign if you’re Iran.
Spain needs to win this game and a draw will be a troublesome result. If they want to clinch the top-spot of this group and get a favourable matchup in the Round of 16, they have to go all-out.
