Prediction: Iran 0-2 Portugal
Portugal is strong overlook of the competition. They are comfortably favorite of the game. They are recent European champions. If we see the squad we see the boss of football Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese players are very confident they strong favorite to reach the next round. In the qualifying round they fought against Hungary, Switzerland and top of the group.
However, Iran have less experience to play with the strong team. They just fight only their own confidence. So best of luck for them.
