Georgia News and Form – Can Georgia get the better of Ireland?

It has been only the four points collected by Georgia from their five qualification games so far. So they are five points away from second place and unlikely to make a run at a top-two finish. This is a competitive group that they have landed themselves in, with Ireland, Switzerland and Denmark heading the race for qualification. Georgia have taken a W1 D1 L3 record in this campaign, the one victory happening against Gibraltar 3-0.

In their other four games besides that win over Gibraltar, Georgia have scored just one goal in total. When they went to Dublin back in March to face Ireland, they lost 1-0. They did have a very good time of things in the Nations League, winning their group, but have been poor since them. They are W3 D1 L1 in their last five home games in European Championship qualifiers. Two of those wins were against Gibraltar, the other against Scotland. In their last qualification match in this campaign, they did get a good point in a draw against Denmark.

Ireland News and Form – Can Ireland stay strong with a win in Georgia?

It is an eight-match undefeated streak of form that Ireland are currently on across all matches. They have some nice momentum therefore, even if they are lacking a great goal-scoring output. Ireland have produced a W3 D2 record so far in this qualification group, the draws happening in their bigger games against Denmark and Switzerland. Given that Ireland’s wins over Georgia and Gibraltar in the group have been low scoring ones, this probably isn’t going to be a fixture in which a lot of goals is going to be produced.

Ireland’s lead at the top of the group is two points ahead of Denmark, three ahead of Switzerland. Switzerland have played one game less than the other two. So Ireland just needs to keep chugging along. In total, they have tallied six goals in their five qualifiers, which is well below the mark of Denmark’s and Switzerland’s outputs. But Ireland have the best defensive record with only two conceded. The Irish are W2 D2 L1 in their last five away games in European Championship qualifiers.
