✔ Exact Score Prediction: Iran vs USA
In this match, the USA are going to have to outplay the Iranians who are always a difficult matchup. Our prediction for the exact score is a victory for the Americans who will want to finish off the first round in the best possible way.
Victory for the USA
This is the outcome that we foresee. The USA seem to be at a slightly higher level than their adversaries, and if the individual players show up on the day, then the USA should be able to take home the three points, even if it is a struggle, 1-2 or 0-1.
This seems like a likely scenario. There will likely be little between the two teams in this match, and every detail will count. A draw with goals, 1-1 or 2-2, is entirely possible between these two teams.
Victory for Iran
This is the least likely outcome. Iran could, of course, get the win in this match, but the USA seems to be collectively better. The Iranians will really have to put on a show to triumph even by 1-0 or 2-1 in this encounter.
✔ Half-time/Full-time prediction: Draw 1st half; USA 2nd half
The USA might well show patience in this match. Iran might put up a good fight against their adversaries, but the Americans will have the last word, scoring just enough to let them bring home the win.

On the American side, the star Christian Pulisic is the main scoring weapon. He might also be followed by his teammate, Timothy Weah, who plays for Lille OSC. Finally, for the Iranians, we can see Sardar Azmoun, currently playing for Bayern Leverkusen, putting one away.
✔ Double Chance Scoring predictions: S. Azmoun / C. Pulisic
As we suggested above, this could be an opportunity to see the American Christian Pulisic and the Iranian Sardar Azmoun score. Thus, we offer you this double chance scoring prediction.
📄 Match Analysis: Iran – USA
Iran made it in two steps. Having finished first in a group made up of Iraq, Bahrein, Hong Kong and Cambodia, the Iranians then easily dominated its group in the third round, finishing in front of South Korea, Australia, Iraq, Syria and Lebanon.
The USA qualified by a hair’s breadth. Having come third in its qualifying group (in the third round), The USA finished behind Canada and Mexico and finished with the same number of points as Costa Rica. It was only by goal difference that the USA managed to qualify for the World Cup.
The second face-off in a World Cup setting. The two countries, who have strained relations, faced off in 1998 in Lyon, where Iran triumphed with a score of 2 goals to 1. The USA will be out for revenge.
Iran is feeling confident. The 21st nation in Fifa’s rankings has lost only one of its last ten matches (eight wins and one draw). Certainly, Iran has not been up against the big hitters of world-class football, but the team is of good quality, which allowed them to make it to the World Cup with relative ease.
The USA are solid. With three defeats in the last 16 matches, the USA are coming into the World Cup with plenty of confidence. The American players notably dominated Mexico and Morocco recently in friendlies.
