Iran VS Uzbekistan Iran is on the brink of becoming the 1st Asian team(2nd team in the world after Brazil) to qualify for next year World Cup. A win against Uzbekistan will be enough to see them through.
The inconsistency of South Korea has open the door for Uzbekistan to qualify for their 1st World Cup. They are now only a point behind South Korea and they will play them in the last group game.
Iran has proven to be the best Asian team in the qualifiers so far. They don't win by big scoreline but rather relies on their efficient attack and stubborn defence to get the job done. In this 3rd round group stage qualifiers so far, 6 of the 7 Iran games have gone below 2 goals. The only game which had 2 goals was the 1st game against Qatar, both goals were scored in 90th min and injury time though. Iran has also won all of their home games. Uzbekistan is likely to play for a draw in this game so they will try to keep it tight and play on the break. With the superior home record and the strong defence that Iran has, I think they will win by another 1-0 scoreline.
