Qatar are a single win away from a shot at the trophy, with the side needing penalties to finally see off Uzbekistan in the last round.

Head To Head


Iran have won their last six matches in a row against Qatar including a crushing 4-0 win in a friendly back in October. 

Iran Form


Iran have been excellent at the Asian Cup, with the side yet to taste a single defeat across their campaign so far. 

Wins over Palestine, Hong Kong, the UAE and Japan have come inside 90 minutes, with Iran looking very strong. They were taken to penalties in their Round of 16 match against Syria, but they showed their grit and determination as they won via spot-kicks. 

While this will not likely be an easy match, Iran come into this one on the back of six wins in a row over Qatar including a comfortable 4-0 win in their last clash. 

Qatar Form 


Qatar breezed through the group-stage of the Asian Cup, beating Lebanon, Tajikistan and China to nil in a show of real skill. 

They had a real fight on their hands against Palestine in the Round of 16, with this a test they came through in a 2-1 win. They were then pushed all the way by a stubborn Uzbekistan as they won their quarter-final on penalties. 

While Qatar have looked good so far, they come up against an Iran side that have been in fine form, with this likely the final game of the tournament for the nation. 

Verdict

I am backing Iran to secure a stunning win in this one as they knock Qatar out despite failing to keep a clean sheet.
