Iran vs Venezuela
Date: Tuesday, 20 November 2018
Kick-Off at 16:00 UK
Venue: Hamad bin Khalifa Stadium (Doha).
Iran and Venezuela are going to face each other on Tuesday in an international friendly match which will take place in Doha.
Asian side is in a pretty good form as they booked three straight victories after their participation in the World Cup. At the most important tournament, they’ve been fairly good and Karim Ansarifard and the lads had the chance to beat Portugal and book their place in the Round of 16. They are playing very disciplined football and although Iran don’t score very often, they are very good in the back and hard to crack. Iran are looking forward to putting another good display in order to continue their streak.
Venezuela didn’t have much success in the World Cup qualifiers as they were one of the weakest national teams in South America. However, they improved their form lately as Rafael Dudamel’s side managed to book two victories in the last four occasions and also remain undefeated in the latest match against Japan. They improved their defending, except the clash against Basque when Venezuela conceded four times.
Iran vs Venezuela: Head-to-head
These two sides had the chance to meet just once so far in their history and that encounter took place this time last year. The match also took place at neutral venue, in Netherlands, and Iran were better thanks to the goal scored by Alireza Jahanbakhsh in the second half.
Iran vs Venezuela: Prediction
This is going to be another close encounter, especially since Venezuela improved their form lately. However, we believe Iran are capable enough of continuing their winning streak and they should snatch another narrow win in this one.
Iran are going to dictate the tempo of the game and since they are very patient and cautious, the main battle is going to be fought in the middle of the park. Therefore, another low scoring game is expected with at most two goals in total.
