by Sameer Arshad | Posted on Tuesday, June 24th, 2014 | 9

Iran still has that slim chance of making it to the next round when they take the field against Bosnia, however their destiny is not in their hand as they not only need to win the match against Bosnia but also hope that Argentina beat Nigeria by more than 2 goals. The task is tough but the ways results has been going into the competition you just never know. Check out our predictions and team news.

Bosnia Herzegovina will be disapointed with their first two matches which saw them getting knocked out of the competition on the first hurdle, they looked a decent side when we look at their qualifying campagin and on the basis of their performance against Argentina in the opening game. But for them everything fell apart against Nigeria, they game which they were expected to win.

Iran vs Bosnia Preview & Team News:

Iran played with the 4-5-1 formation to good effect in their opening two matches, first they played out a 0-0 draw against Nigeria than they almost got a draw against Argetina in their 2nd group game only for Lionel Messi to win the game with magican strike. Now Carlos Queiroz might go in the Bosnia game with conventional 4-4-2 formation which he used in the last moments against Argentian to good effect.

Bosnia are out of the competition and we might see a few changes in starting lineup with Eden Dzeko who had a shocker of a game against Nigeria will surely be replaced. While a few other changes are expected as well. This is how I think both teams will lineup.

Match Statistics & Predictions:

Bosnia has never beaten Iran in their previous 5 matches, losing 4 and drawing 1, but this will be the first ever meeting in world cup and Iran has not beaten a European outfit in world cup in their 5 matches having drawn 1 and lost 4. Bosnian striker Dzeko had a terible world cup he failed to score with his 9 shots on target out of which 8 came against Nigeria.

Looking at the stats, I think Iran has more than just a chance of making it through to next round. If we dont see another surprise in Argentina-Nigeria game(where Argentina are expected to win) Iran can win against Bosnia and they will be going through to the next round. I am going with a Iran win and qualification from this group just because this has been a crazy world cup.
