  • Venue: Ahvaz Ghadir Stadium

Malavan will be looking to move into the top half of the table with a win when they take on Esteghlal away on Thursday afternoon.

The visitors go into this match full of confidence, having not only not lost in their last eight matches in all competitions, but also keeping a clean sheet in all of those encounters. Considering that Maziar Zare's side also managed to finish each of their last four encounters with Esteghlal without conceding a goal, it wouldn't be a surprise if Iman Sadeghi keeps another clean sheet this week.

They will be visiting an Esteghlal side that is just eight points off the top of the table but go into this game on the back of two straight league defeats. However, this match will be played in a stadium that they have turned into a real fortress lately. To throw more light, Ricardo Sá Pinto's men are unbeaten in their last nine games in all competitions at this ground - a record they would be eager to extend.

Esteghlal vs Malavan Betting Tips: Under 2.5 goals

Considering the close nature of recent matches between these two teams and the fact that each of the last five matches played by the guests ended with less than two goals, a bet on under 2.5 goals is the best option for this match.

In addition to that, there have been three goalless draws in the last five matches of the guests, which is why we think a 0-0 is the most likely outcome of this game.

  • Best Tip: Under 2.5 goals

Meanwhile, Malavan head coach Maziar Zare is likely to resist temptation to make changes to his starting eleven after the 1-0 win over Naft Masjed last time out.

Mehdi Momeni has scored in each of the last two league games, and the 37-year-old is perhaps the man to watch out for with the visitors.
