Qatar – Iran Match Prediction | 14-09-2019 10:00

The two countries have a close economic relationship which affects their diplomatic relations, particularly in the oil and gas industries. Iran and Qatar jointly control the world's largest natural gas field.[2] Qatar has 13% of the world's total proven gas reserves. A big portion of Qatar's oil comes from a field that is related to Iran.

Qatar has maintained cordial relations with Iran. In 1991, following the end of the Persian Gulf War, former emir of Qatar Hamad bin Khalifa welcomed Iranian participation in Persian Gulf security arrangements, however due to resistance from other Persian Gulf Arab States these never came into fruition. However, Qatar maintains security cooperation with Iran through bilateral ties. Additionally, plans were in progress in 1992 to pipe water from the Karun River in Iran to Qatar, but after local resistance in Iran this was laid to rest.

Country comparison[edit]

The Iraqis started the tournament in less than sturdy fashion; they shipped twice against Vietnam on match-day one, though theyve since tightened up. These numbers bode well. At the other end of proceedings, Katanecs side have looked useful. They didnt offer much against Iran, but as mentioned previously, theyd already qualified and thus played accordingly. Prior to match-day three, Iraq scored six goals and delivered expected-goals for performances of 2.03 and 1.62.

Leading up to the Iranian Revolution in 1979, Qatar and Iran shared a friendly relationship. This was exemplified by the support of the government of Qatar and Sheikh Khalifah for the monarchy of Iran, stating that Iran is a dear and friendly neighbour with which we are united by the brotherhood of Islam.[citation needed] The desire to keep up friendly relations was motivated by Iran's status as a military and economic powerhouse as well as interests with OPEC.

Qatar, despite having a good home record in friendlies, haven't seen that translate to the qualifiers as of yet. Expert Verdict: Iran are big favorites here despite being the away side. They have a wealth of attacking options at the moment, and that's no doubt something Qatar will be envious of moving toward the 2022 World Cup. So that gives Iran, who are having something resembling a golden generation at the moment, coming through.

They are treading lightly on both sides in pursuance of their own self-interests. Qatar has a difficult time when it comes to maintaining a good sustainable relationship with Iran, as well as adopting the policies set by the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) towards it.
