Ireland vs Georgia Prediction & Betting tips
In the current European Championship qualification, there are games that are looking forward to great anticipation because it could be spectacular. This was the case, for example, with the crash between Holland and Germany. The big games do not have the group D to offer, but the duel between Switzerland and Denmark on Tuesday makes hope for a great football day. In this group, there is also another game that should be rather heavy food for gourmets. The Republic of Ireland will have to deal with the Georgia team. A treat sounds truly different.
The Irish have at least celebrated a successful start and were able to collect the first three points in the victory in Gibraltar. Georgia, however, defeated the favored Swiss at home with 0: 2. Switzerland and Ireland lead the classification. Denmark has not had a match yet and Georgia and Gibraltar are without a point. Basically, that was not expected otherwise. What is happening now in Dublin in the duel between Ireland and Georgia, is not even so easy in the forecast. The Irish have been searching for their form for months and the Georgians have recently shown themselves to be extremely unpleasant opponents. Therefore, we do not consider a point win of the guests for excluded. However, it has to be said clearly that the Georgians will only take these qualifiers as a test run for the playoffs in the Nations League.
It will not be enough for the regular qualification. Over the Nations League, the chance of the Georgians is greater than ever, for the first time to participate in a major tournament. Because of this double-edged story, in a duel between Ireland and Georgia, we would be tempted to win at home, even though that’s not all that easy in the current Green Boys’ constitution. Perhaps they will be inspired by the great atmosphere in their own stadium, because if the Irish want to go to the European Championships, they will have to leave Denmark or Switzerland behind in qualifying. The kick-off to the European Championship qualifier between Ireland and Georgia at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin will take place on 26.03.2019 at 19:45.
Irish football is at a crossroads and threatens to disappear in the sinking, as it has happened in the meantime even the British teams from Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The Irish are missing the stars that cause a sensation in the national team. Most Boys in Green play underclass in England. Therefore, it will probably be very difficult to qualify for the EM 2020. This also means that we should examine different quotas in the duel between Ireland and Georgia. The Republic of Ireland is in footballing terms, namely in a tangible crisis. In the last seven games, there was only a meager victory, against Gibraltar. The Irish have scored only one goal in the last five internationals. In the Nations League after the first season of relegation to Division C to book. After Denmark and Wales, Ireland became sang- and unassuming last. If we want to, then the Irish way into EM qualifying continues.
There was a 1-0 win in Gibraltar on Saturday, but the way the Irish have performed does not give them the courage to make short-term gains. Of course, Ireland had more of the game, but Gibraltar was able to make this encounter reasonably open. Shortly after the break, it was Jeffrey Hendrick who scored the game’s golden goal. For a team like Ireland is a 1-0 on the monkey rock already very poor.
Coach Mick McCarthy was also not happy at all, but knows that his side’s encounter with Georgia should be better. He assumes that the next opponent will participate even more in the game and thereby open up more rooms for his players. A change of personnel will almost certainly happen. Matt Doherty should be replaced in the right midfield by Robert Brady, who was injured for a long time, but harmonized much better with captain Seamus Coleman on this side. Otherwise, it will have to show what conclusions the coach drew from the duel in Gibraltar. Other changes are certainly not excluded.
The Georgians seem to have made an enormous leap in recent months under coach Vladimir Weiss. We think it is very possible that this team will be at the EURO 2020 next year. This goal is unlikely to be achieved through the regular qualifiers, but the Georgians have the best chance of winning the European Championship ticket through the Nations League. Georgia has taken the victory in a group in Division D and has initially risen. In the playoffs they will now play with Belarus, Northern Macedonia and Kosovo an EM participant. In the group stage, Georgia was at least the best team in this division. This fact is also reflected in the results. In the last 13 games Georgia lost only two defeats. Perhaps it might make sense to check the odds on at least one point win in the duel between Ireland and Georgia.
Also on the last Saturday the Georgians delivered a passable performance. Against the big favorites from Switzerland, the hosts in Tbilisi have been able to keep up with them for a long time. Only after one hour, the Swiss were 1-0 in the lead and ten minutes before the end with the 2: 0 put the lid on the game. The win was deserved, but the Georgians have once again proved that they can be an unpleasant opponent. That will certainly be the case in Ireland too. There we expect a somewhat offensive oriented Georgian team. With a victory in Dublin could even be considered in the final bill on the third place and everything else would then also be able to surrender. Personally there is no reason why Vladimir Weiss should not continue to trust the formation of Saturday. If there are changes, then these are more likely to be related to the freshness of the actors.
