UAE to win the game
UAE will be desperate to turn around the mediocre start to the group stages.

Iran may have started exceptionally well but away games might turn out to be a struggle for the team. It would not be a surprise if an overconfident moment leads to an opportunity for the hosts.
Total goals over 2.5
Iran have been very strong at the back with no goals conceded in the last five games. Since concealing against Hong Kong back in June, Iran have not allowed any goals, but UAE will be keen to banish memories of the recent goalscoring struggles.
Goals from both teams – yes
Iran have been a strong defensive unit with five consecutive clean sheets. However, they go up against a UAE outfit who have scored a lot of goals at home.
