Iran vs Lithuania Preview and Predictions

Iran vs Lithuania
International Friendlies
Date: Friday, 8th June 2018
Kick-Off at 16:00 UK / 17:00 CET
Venue: Otkrytiye Arena, Moscow.

Iran avoided a tough opposition for their final test before the World Cup in Russia as they clearly aim for a confidence-boosting on Friday afternoon when the Asian hopefuls take on the out-of-form Lithuania side at Otkrytiye Arena in Moscow.

Carlos Quieroz has an interesting mix of experience and talent in his ranks and Iran will be anything but a naïve rival for any opposition in Russia. They are generally known as a side very tough to break down and they proved it by shipping no goals in nine WC qualifiers in the final round of the Asian qualifying campaign.

They’ll be up against Lithuania who have been struggling badly for goals recently and we see the match as a perfect occasion for Team Melli to keep things tight at the back and bounce back from a disappointing 2-1 loss to Turkey last Monday.

Iran vs Lithuania: Head-to-head

This will be the first ever head to head encounter between Iran and Lithuania.

Iran vs Lithuania: Predictions

Edgaras Jankauskas could rotate his squad here after Tuesday’s clash with Latvia in the Baltic Cup which certainly has a greater significance for the Lithuanians than this friendly against Iran does. Overall, the Eastern European outfit failed to score more than a single goal in four matches even though the opposition in last three of the run included the likes of Georgia, Armenia and Estonia. Backing Iran to keep a clean sheet is thus an ideal option for the main bet at 1.70 odds here.

The Asian World Cup hopefuls have much more talent in their squad which features the likes of Ashkan Dejagah, Alireza Jahanbaksh and Serdar Azmoun. In all, this is a fantastic opportunity for Team Melli to return on the winning ways after falling 2-1 to Turkey. We see the 1.50 odds offered for Iran’s win as a banker bet according to everything written above.
