Julen Lopetegui was in charge of Spain’s Under 19 and Under 21 national team. He guided his youngsters to win the UEFA European title in 2012 and 2013. Julen has managed Real Madrid and Barcelona and won trophies with both clubs.
After the retirement of Vicente del Bosque, he was appointed as new manager of Spain and won the first game in charge against Belgium by 2-0. So his side is likely to grab all three points from Iran.
Iran has won only 1 match in all World Cups they played. Meanwhile, the one time winners have a good experience. Spain has more than 65% chances of winning the match.
