Wales face Iran at the Ahmad bin Ali Stadium in their second Group B match at the 2022 World Cup. This is a huge game for Rob Page’s side, with three points vital to their hopes of securing a top-two finish in the group. They have shown that they are capable this year, having secured wins against Austria and Ukraine while impressively holding Belgium to a 1-1 draw in June. According to the betting, Aaron Ramsey is among the most likely Welsh scorers in this game. The Nice midfielder is a key player for his country and has previously scored crucial goals. He was on target in games at Euro 2016 and Euro 2020, while he also hit three during the qualifying period.
Iran will likely see this as their most winnable game in the group. The betting backs that up, with Wales behind England and the USA in the pre-tournament top two finish market. To get a result, they need Karim Ansarifard and Mehdi Taremi to be at their best. Both players netted seven goals during qualifying, making them strong contenders in the Anytime Goal Scorer Betting.
This is just the second meeting between these two nations. Their last game was a 1978 international friendly in Tehran, which Wales won 1-0. However, both teams tend to find the back of the net these days. Wales scored in all 11 fixtures between October 2021 and June 2022, while Team Melli failed to score in just one of their nine matches during the same period. Can the Dragons claim their second victory against the three-time Asian Cup champions and boost their chances of qualifying for the knockout stages? Or will Iran dent Welsh hopes?
