Iraq vs Iran match information

Time: 23:00 (GMT+8) on November 14th

Venue: Amman International Stadium, Amman (Jordan

Competition: 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier (Asian region)

Iran entered the second qualifying round of the 2022 World Cup in Asia with the confidence to win the top of Group C - meaning the ticket to the final qualifying round. It is completely understandable because the team of coach Wilmots is the strongest team in Asia - ranked 27th in the FIFA rankings.

In the first two matches, Iran quickly showed off their strength with a 2-0 win on Hong Kong's field and crushed Cambodia with a score of 14-0 at home, thereby gaining the number one position 1.

However, in the third match of Group C, the mighty West Asian team was suddenly poured cold water when losing 0-1 on the field of Bahrain and then dropped to 3rd place.

Back to this game, the team nicknamed Tīm-e Melli will have a difficult trip to Iraq's field - the team considered Iran's biggest opponent in Group C. Generally, Iraq cannot compare to Iran in reputation and class but with home advantage, the team of coach Katanec can bring many surprises to the visitors.

At the moment, Iraq is in a stable form. In detail, they started qualifying with a draw on the field of Bahrain and then won all 6 points against Cambodia and Hong Kong, then held the top position.

If we just count recent Iraq's matches playing at home, Iraq is not an easy team to be bullied. Evidently, they only have 1 loss, the remaining 3 draws and won up to 7 matches in the last 11 home matches in all competitions attended.
