    Time for one of these teams to put up or shut up.
    I think a draw almost ends it for both.

    Both teams have to go for the win, a draw does neither any good. So hoping for a great game!

    Something has to give soon with all this Moroccan pressure.

    Morocco so far has been fun to watch. I don't remember anyone in Asia finding so much space in Iran's half in a while.

    it's not that Iran are really playing all that bad, but Morocco are just so much quicker with the ball and to the ball. One better placed pass and they'll score.

    We are really missing Ashkan in the midfield

    I had this one as a 1-0 Iran win. Still expect it, in a counter against the run of play, but it'd be a shame the way Morocco is playing. They remind me of Chile minus the lethal striker.

    That was a bit of a late whistle/decision. Don't disagree with the decision, but seemed really late.

    Maybe Iran have weathered the storm, getting some opportunities now, especially on the left. The Moroccan RB obviously loves to attack so there could be some space for Iran behind him.

    Still the Iranian keeper doesn't look confident. I'd test him at every opportunity.
