Georgia vs Switzerland Prediction & Betting tips
It is getting serious again! The newly created UEFA Nations League has not yet found favor with all national teams. Some teams have considered the games as “better friendlies”. At least since this weekend, the pure result is back in the center. The kick-off for qualifying for the pan-European European Championship next year will be announced. 24 teams then fight across Europe for the title win. The top 2 of each group will solve the ticket. In Group D there are three hot contenders for the two tickets – Denmark, Ireland and the Swiss Confederates. A positive start is accordingly of great importance. For Switzerland is in the away game at Georgia in any case, only a complete success!
Especially since in the second group match with “Danish Dynamite” in the home game an absolute cracker is waiting. Switzerland has not always celebrated beautiful, but extremely successful football in recent years. It is no coincidence that the Swiss are currently in eighth place in the FIFA world ranking list. The opponent from Georgia is ranked 89th in this ranking. Big stars are not present in the squad of Vladimir Weiss and the class difference can not be denied with a look at the existing player material. Accordingly, a tip on the victory of the guests for the European Championship qualifier between Georgia and Switzerland is obvious.
For two years, the Slovak Vladimir Weiss has been head coach of Georgia. In 30 international matches Weiss comes up with an excellent average score of 1.50 points per game. The record is even positive with twelve wins, nine draws and nine defeats. The newly created UEFA Nations League was certainly well received by the Eastern Europeans. Although Georgia started in the lowest league, Group D, it was able to fix the rise in an impressive way. Five wins and a draw (away in Andorra) reached the White Elf. All in all, Georgia only had to concede two goals in six competitive matches. The current number 89 FIFA World Ranking should not be lacking in confidence.
In 2018, the White-Elf has celebrated eight wins in ten internationals, drew against Andorra and had to take in a friendly against Luxembourg defeat. Thanks to the victory in the Nations League, Georgia definitely has a chance for the first European Championship in the coming year. Should a top 2 place be missed in group D, then there is still the detour via the Nations League.
The results of Georgia last year, however, should not be overstated. When looking at the respective opponents, victory was often even a duty. In the squad of Vladimir Weiss are only legionaries, but really big stars are not in the squad. According to Transfermarkt, Solomon Kvirkvelia, a center-back of Lokomotiv Moscow, has the highest market value. By and large, the Georgians are a no-name team, which wants to make up for the lack of quality, especially by fighting. In the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying, Georgia did not win a single victory (five draws, five defeats). A point win against Switzerland would be a very positive start in any case.
For several years, Switzerland has established itself in the top spot of the FIFA World Ranking. The Petkovic-Elf is currently ranked 8th. For many teams, Switzerland is always a “wishless” is when it comes to an opponent from Topf1 the draw. Switzerland has a much worse reputation than Belgium, France or Spain. The big superstars are not to be found among the Confederates, even the thick successes are sought in vain. However, the Petkovic team is extremely consistent. Games against weaker opponents are usually won. Against strong opponents, Switzerland trusts a good defensive backbone and then tries to put pinpricks.
Before the World Cup in Russia, however, the euphoria among the patriotic Swiss was not really there. Often the criticism was heard that the team has lost the identity. Many so-called “secondos” play with the Confederates and the “we-feeling” suffered noticeably in recent years. The round of 16 knockout against Sweden was ultimately not a result that brought the fans to cheer.
However, this success was achieved by the Petkovic team in the Nations League. With a brilliant 6: 0 against Iceland a start to measure succeeded. The last group match also ended with a shooting festival. Thanks to a sensational 5-2 success over Belgium, the group victory was fixed. Switzerland can at once offensive football. Petkovic has increasingly acted in the last few months a triple chain. The panacea should not represent this system, but the Swiss are now much more flexible and unpredictable for the enemy. Meanwhile, an euphoria is felt again, this should not be smothered recklessly in Georgia.
