Match facts

Wales

  • This is just the second ever meeting between Wales and Iran, with the Red Dragons winning the other in April 1978 – Phil Dwyer scoring the only goal of the game.
  • Wales have faced Asian opposition seven times in their history and have only conceded once in these games, keeping six clean sheets (W5 D2). Their most recent such game was a 6-0 win against China in March 2018.
  • Four of Wales' six games at the World Cup have been drawn (67%), with no side having a higher ratio of their games finishing level in the competition's history.

Iran

  • Iran have never beaten a European opponent at the World Cup in nine previous attempts (D2 L7), conceding 20 goals across those games, with six coming on MD1 in their 6-2 defeat to England.
  • Iran lost 6-2 against England on MD1, the fourth time in their six participations they have lost their opening game at the World Cup. They’ve only lost their first two games at one previous World Cup, doing so in 2006.
  • Mehdi Taremi became the first ever Iranian player to score more than once at the World Cup with his brace against England on MD1. Indeed, Taremi was also the first player from an Asian country to net two goals in a World Cup game.

Predictions

Based on performances earlier this week, Wales will be regarded as the marginal favourites for this contest. However, with Iran having more recovery time and playing at a time of the day which should benefit them, we can see a competitive low-scoring draw being played out in Al Rayyan.
