Spain hero Deigo Costa denies stamping on Iran goalkeeper

When does the FIFA World Cup 2018 Match-20 between Iran vs Spain start? In the more likely situation that Spain secure victory, they will enter their final group encounter in a much more comfortable position for reaching the first knockout rounds.

Let's look at the Iran vs. Spain betting lines.

Facing a very compact Iranian team that came out to defend, Spain pressed high and controlled much of the game but found it hard to threaten against Iran's 10-man defence. And the defence that conceded three times against Portugal was stretched quite easily again when Iran chose to come out and attack.

But Hierro insists the problems posed by Iran - who thought they had equalised only for Saeid Ezatolahi's effort to be ruled out by the video assistant referee - indicate there can be no guarantees in Russian Federation.

Spain continued to apply strong pressure in the second half and Beiranvand stopped a strike from Sergio Busquets in the 49th minute with a superb one-handed diving save.

Iran could have scored in the 80th minute but Mehdi Taremi's header went over the bar.

Iran, meanwhile, face Portugal on the same day needing a win to progress at the expense of Cristiano Ronaldo and Co.

Spain is now unbeaten in 22 matches, with 15 of those wins.

At first glance, it looked like Costa had stepped on Beiranvand's feet as he threw the ball before dropping to the ground.
