Wales vs Iran.
With their World Cup fate in their own hands, Wales takes on Iran in Group B. Wales would be on the verge of moving on to the knockout stages with a victory. After Iran lost to England in the tournament opener, Iran will try to bounce back. The 3 Lions dominated Iran from the beginning, triumphing 6-2. The performance of Medhi Taremi, who scored two goals, was Iran's lone bright spot.
On the first day of the World Cup, Wales pulled off an incredible comeback against the United States to draw 1-1. The United States dominated the first half because manager Rob Page made a mistake early on. It was fortunate for the Dragons that their deficit at halftime was only one goal.
Only 21% of the ball belonged to Iran versus England. They were under constant pressure. Against Wales, the Iranians will need to play more effectively on defense. Wales would put tremendous pressure on the United States, who face England later in the day, if they were to win.
Additionally, 42% of games ended with more than 2.5 goals. In the first 12 games of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, four of the games ended in draws. Iran could be challenging for Wales to dismantle in the second encounter. Iran will offer up different challenges than the States did.
For this prediction: Wales to win this match and over 2.5 goals.
