Uzbekistan take on Iran in Tuesday’s big WC Qualifiers - Asia meeting.
Our tips, poll and stats for Uzbekistan v Iran can all be found here including the latest game odds.
Uzbekistan will be looking for a repeat result of the 1-3 WC Qualifiers - Asia triumph versus Turkmenistan.
For Uzbekistan, the scorers were Otabek Shukurov (57', 77') and Eldor Shomurodov (90').
It’s been a rare occasion in recent times where Uzbekistan haven’t conceded. In fact, Uzbekistan have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 matches, leaking 9 goals during that time. Despite that, we’ll just have to find out whether the trend might be sustained in this next game or not.
Iran head into the clash after a 4-0 WC Qualifiers - Asia win against Hong Kong in their most recent game.
For Iran, the goals were scored by Sardar Azmoun (12', 15'), Mehdi Taremi (87') and Ramin Rezaeian (90').
In their previous 6 outings, Iran have amassed a total of 18 goals. Iran have also scored in every single one of those games. During that period, they’ve seen 2 goals scored by their opponents.
Head to head
A review of their past head to head meetings going back to 11/06/2015 reveals that these fixtures have not been happy ones for Uzbekistan. They have not managed to get any victories at all while Iran have been too good for them, getting wins in 100 per cent of those games played.
A combined total of 9 goals were scored between them in these games, with 1 of them from White Wolves and 8 belonging to Team Melli. The average goals per game has been 1.5.
We’re of the opinion that Uzbekistan may not find it easy to breach the defence of this Iran lineup who we think might end up scoring and possibly keep a clean sheet as well.
We’ve gone for a hard-fought contest, finishing with a 0-1 winning margin for Iran at the end of this one.
Should be an interesting one.
