Iran vs South Korea

1X2 / Moneyline
Pick: 1
Odds: 2.2
Stake: 1

Match date: 12/10/2021

Iran welcome South Korea in he derby match of Group A of the World Cup qualifications in Asia. Both teams are looking for top spot in the group. Iran are currently first with maximal effect - three victories after the first three rounds. They beat Syria 1:0, Iraq 3:0 and United Arab Emirates 1:0. As You could see, they are yet to concede a single goal. The players confidence is high. Sardar Azmoun should lead the line together with his fellow striker Mehdi Taremi. Captain Ehsan Hajsafi is rated as doubtful after only played 12 minutes against the United Arab Emirates due to a thigh problem.

South Korea are second on the table with seven points.They managed to beat Lebanon 1:0 and Syria 2:1, but shared the points with Iraq playing a goalless draw. South Korea were lucky to beat Syria at home turf. The winning goal was scored by Heung-Min Son in the 88th minute. It was his 27th international goal. However, it will be much more difficult now as the Iranian defense is working perfectly. The Koreans have lot of issues when play against Iran in the last decade. They have been without a win since October 2005, a run stretching to 11 games.

I expect an interesting match. South Korea is currently sitting in 36th position in the FIFA rankings, 14 places behind 22nd ranked Iran. I think the hosts will win this match. The key reason for my pick is their dominant defensive performances. As I already wrote above, they are yet to concede a goal in this campaign. Iran are undefeated in almost two years, with their last defeat coming back in November 2019.

LOST Score: 1:1 Profit: -1
