Iran registered a huge win against Morocco (1-0) at the first round of the 2nd group. They played defensively holding a passive role during the entire game. On the other hand, Morocco missed a lot of chances, until they conceded their own at 5' of the injury time. With this win and the draw between Spain and Portugal, Iran stand in the first place of the group and make dreams of qualification. However there are still remaining two games for the Iranians, against the strongest teams of the group, that seem to be extremely difficult. They will definitely play defensively against Spain but it's almost impossible to repeat the scenario of the previous match.
Spain and Portugal gained from one point each at their first game in the tournament. Portugueses took the lead at 4' with penalty, then Spain temporarily tied 1-1 at 24', but Portugueses answered with a 2-1 at 44'. In second half Spain after a lot of efford made the 2-3 scoring at 55' and 58'. By the time everyone thought that Spain would leave the picth with the three pointer, there was an excellent free kick from Cristiano Ronaldo to make the final 3-3. Now Spain need only the win against weak Iran, to avoid to get in trouble and they will try for this from the beginning of the game.
There is a huge quality difference between Spain and Iran. Spaniards certainly need the three pointer and are expected to determine game's result early. I will bet on Spain win with Handicap (-1,5), so as to improve the offered odds.
