Now in a straight shootout with Spain to secure top spot in Group A, on Monday evening Euro 2016 Champions Portugal will face off with Iran at the Mordovia Arena.
For the Euro 2016 champions, currently sat second in Group A, while Portugal have collected four points from their opening two games and have scored four and conceded three, the exact same statistics as Spain, they know they must better their rivals score to clinch that vital top spot. Now with just one defeat in their last 14 matches in all competitions, Portugal will look for striker and captain Cristiano Ronaldo to carry on his stellar run of form. Now with four goals in his two World Cup outings, the Real Madrid talisman sits second in the goalscoring charts and also scored his first World Cup goal against Iran back in 2006.
As for Iran, despite impressing during their qualifying campaign and securing a 1-0 win over Morocco in their opening matchup and only sitting a single point behind their opponents on Monday evening, we do not expect a seismic upset at the Mordovia Arena. Iran also hold a very poor record when up against European opposition, along with causing absolutely no problems to Spain in the final third, Team Melli are winless against European opposition at the World Cup, losing six of their seven fixtures.
