Morocco v Iran Betting Preview

Two of the outsiders in the 2018 World Cup Odds, Morocco and Iran do battle in the second match on Friday and with Spain facing Portugal later in the day then both will see this match as an opportunity to kick off their Group B campaign with a win, but while it may be one of the lesser attractive matches in the group stages it should still provide a decent spectacle in a game that could be relatively cagey.

Morocco v Iran Latest Odds

Iran (37th) may rank slighty higher than Morocco (41st) in the latest FIFA World Rankings, but it's the latter of that pair that will line up as favourites for this contest, and Morocco are 13/10 with Betfair Sportsbook to grab the three points here, with the draw available at 11/4 with Paddy Power, and the draw on offer at 2/1 with Betfred.

Last seen clashing in 2002, where they shared a 1-1 draw, these two sides qualified top of their qualifying groups, and both didn't taste defeat in the qualification process, but they shall find the test of a World Cup a lot more daunting, and it's Morocco than can down a goal-shy Iran in this contest.

Eleven goals in six qualifying games, Morocco more amazingly didn't concede one goal in their CAF third round group stage, so they will hope to continue their fine defensive record, and with Iran only netting ten goals in their ten qualification matches then it could be another comfortable match for the Moroccan back-line, and they can shutout the Iranians with aplomb.

While Morocco warmed up with a 3-1 win over Estonia, Iran fell to a 2-1 defeat to Turkey in their last competitive match, and they could face a fairly short stay in Russia at the 2018 World Cup and it's a Morocco win that stands out in the latest Morocco v Iran Odds.

Wide Open First Goalscorer Betting Available

The odds of 4/9 with Betfair for there to be under 2.5 goals just emphasises the lack of firepower these sides have, and what will ultimately seen them both crashing out in the early stages, but with that in mind it's the first goalscorer betting that could provide some value for punters away from the win market.

Khalid Boutaib scored four goals in qualification for Morocco, and he looks to be the most likely man to break the deadlock, and the 11/2 with Betfred is a decent price, while his fellow attacker Ayoub El Kaabi is slightly shorter in the betting at 5/1 with Ladbrokes, and with eleven goals in nine international appearances he could be another decent bet to give Morocco the lead.

Mehdi Taremi could lead the Iranian attack in Russia, and he is the shortest price of the Iran players to score first, but at 8/1 with William Hill marks poor value in a market that has to be focussed on Morocco, with them kicking off their World Cup with a narrow victory.
