Iran (1-0-1, 3 points) vs. Portugal (1-1-0, 4 points)

Group B, Mordovia Arena, Saransk

Iran and Portugal meet for the third time with plenty at stake for both sides. Team Melli, which earned its second World Cup win in its group stage opener against Morocco, likely needs another win against Portugal to advance to the knockout round. Meanwhile, Portugal, which tied Spain on the strength of a Cristiano Ronaldo hat trick and held on for a 1-0 win over Morocco last Wednesday, is through with at least a draw. Portugal is 2-0 all-time against Iran, including a 2-0 win in the group stage of the 1998 World Cup.
