Wales vs Iran
World Cup 2022
Date: Friday, 25 November 2022
Kick-off at 11:00 UK/ 12:00 CET
Venue: Ahmad bin Ali Stadium.
It was never going to be easy with the Three Lions in the same mix, and Iran surely took some hits. They find themselves placed bottom-most in the table, and need to go after a huge win at any cost this weekend. And this is exactly what the Welsh squad would be counting on.
They registered a 1-1 draw in their opener against USA, and it was surely a nervy affair. They were trailing 0-1 for the major portion of the game – but managed to slot in the equalizer through a Gareth Bale penalty, late in the fixture.
Anyhow they managed to secure one valuable point from the match-up. And should they be able to secure a win in this upcoming fixture, they could make a real push for a spot in the Round of 16.
The reason being, they are pitted against the dead-last placed, desperate Iran, while USA are locking horns with England – and are expected to lose.
Coming to Iran, they let in six goals in their opener, which has totally killed their spirit. They face a mountain to climb here on if they want to make it to the knockouts.
Moreover, their recent form has not all been impressive, and they also face the obvious disadvantage of taking on an experienced European team. Note that the Welsh squad had made it till the semifinals of the 2016 Euros.
Furthermore, this should possibly be the last dance for Gareth Bale, who is determined to do something huge for his international career.

Wales vs Iran Prediction & Analysis
Iran are desperate, and that itself will be their undoing this Friday at the hands of the Welsh. The Iranian team have zero points against their name, and at the same time they have a negative goal difference as well.
It goes without saying that they need to go after a huge win right from the get-go. They simply have no other go, even if it sounds risky.
And the offense led by Bale will be in anticipation. It would be hard for the Asian squad to match the pace of these Europeans, and moreover their experience would be an added bonus as well.
Furthermore, Wales will be also high on confidence after managing to make a comeback against USA in their opener.
Expect them to deliver a winning performance this Friday at the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium.
And as regards to the goal-scoring, who else to turn to but the talisman of their squad – Gareth Bale. He has already opened his account at the 2022 World Cup, and will be raring to go this weekend. Count on Gareth to find the back of the net at least once.
