Iran vs USA Prediction on November 29, 2022

Match info

Iran and the United States will lock horns in one of the final games of Group B’s preliminary stage competition at the men’s football 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. On Tuesday, November 29, at 10 p.m. local & Moscow time, this game will take place at Al Thumama Stadium in Doha.

Meeting statistics

This matchup should be intense because a spot in the knockout rounds is on the line, but the USMNT should be able to prevail. Iran is ranked 30th while the USA is ranked 16th in terms of likelihood to win the World Cup, respectively, in accordance to deposit bonuses bookmakers. Can Iran complete the Group Stage by pulling off the unexpected? Or will the US advance to the Round of 16 with a victory? Let’s look at Bookmaker-Expert’s analysis on this clash.

The current form of Iran

Iran has qualified for its fifth World Cup appearance overall and third consecutive tournament. For the first time in their history, ‘Team Melli’ will try to make a move and exit the Group Stage. After Iran had already qualified, manager Carlos Queiroz took over after commanding the Asian side to the World Cup in 2014 and 2018. He has helped the team to a 2-1-0 record since his comeback.

The Iranian forwards Sardar Azmoun, Karim Ansarifard, and Mehdi Taremi are leading the pushup front. The three players have combined for 219 national team appearances and have made five goals and one assist in 2022. Only two Iranian players compete for a team in one of Europe’s top five leagues: Saman Ghoddos for Brentford and Azmoun for Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga. Midfielder Alireza Jahanbakhsh most recently competed in the Premier League in 2021 for Brighton.

The current form of the USA

The ‘Stars and Stripes’, in contrast to ‘Team Melli’, now boast 13 players representing elite clubs in the Premier League, Bundesliga, La Liga, Serie A, and Ligue 1. Christian Pulisic, the team’s captain and leader in goals with 21, stands out among the group of players.

With only three players older than 30 (Tim Ream, Sean Johnson, and Aaron Long), the United States has one of the youngest rosters entering the World Cup. In addition, the North American side only has one player who has previously participated in a World Cup match (DeAndre Yedlin). Due to their overall talent, the United States is still expected to get out of Group B and into the Round of 16 (despite their lack of experience). Although the United States won’t have it easy in this game, they’ll eventually defeat Iran. We’re kind of sure about that.

Head-to-head encounters

Only twice in their history have Iran and the USA faced off: 1-1-0. The most recent match between these two sides ended in a 1-1 draw in a friendly in January 2000. In the other game, which took place during the 1998 World Cup’s Group Stage, Iran triumphed 2-1.

Match analytics

Both teams will be playing their best game possible because a spot in the Round of 16 might be on the line. Despite having several strong pieces that could cause harm, Iran will have difficulty competing against the ‘Stars and Stripes’. ‘Team Melli’ will be held at bay by the United States, who’ll likely prevent them from scoring.

Hitting the Under 2.5 in total goals with odds of 1.71 at 4raBet is something of a sure bet.

Results of the forecast

Successful forecast. Iran vs USA 0:1
