Our Prediction:

Scotland will win

Georgia – Scotland Match Prediction | 28-08-2019 12:00

Despite producing a fine display against Republic of Ireland in their opener, Julio Ribas troops eventually suffered a loss to the Boys in Green. Gibraltar are likely to adopt a defence-minded approach in Fridays match, but seeing that the hosts face a must-win situation, we are positive that the underdogs are going to return home empty-handed from the trip to Tbilisi.

The hosts are likely to go all guns blazing at Gibraltar and we predict that they are going to emerge triumphant in their third group game. The Georgians have been struggling to find their form in 2019, but they are seen as hot favourites to win Fridays clash against the minnows. Georgia will be looking to make amends for back-to-back defeats to the likes of Switzerland and Republic of Ireland when they welcome Gibraltar at their Boris Paichadze Dinamo Arena.

By now the Scotland coaches must have a massive dossier of information on M. Gauzere, including what he focuses on and what he might be more likely to let slide. With all that previous experience and analysis to fall back on, there should certainly be no excuse for getting on his bad side either this weekend or in a months time!

Highlighted Team (Gibraltar):

In addition, Ireland has a 100% unbeaten record against Georgia, and if not for a lone draw, would have registered a 100 % winning record. At home, though, they definitely do hold such a record in h2h games, and this time theres no need for an exception. Also, Georgia has returned only one goal in their five away games against Ireland.

Injuries are inevitable and resting players is going to be part of the group stage. Townsend may also play a few fringe players so he has a greater balance when injuries require people to call upon. Nel and Berghan are probably ahead but Fagerson could do with more game time in case being called upon. Townsend has clearly been wisely increasing the strength and depth in the squad. If Zander is being considered to be in the squad he needs to be exposed to international matches. Like to see him playing from start or coming off the bench.

They are going against one of the worst teams in the entire competition, and on top of that, they have the additional home advantage to count on. Add to this the fact that, the current toppers, Switzerland, is taking on Denmark, which has no chance to be an easy game. Ireland has got a favorable setting for them to jump to the top spot of the table.

Georgia vs Gibraltar Betting Tips

The presence of Georgia in League D of the Nations League might have given them some favorable fixtures, but they surely are no match for teams that are actively pursuing spots in the upcoming main event of the Euros. Georgia, along with Gibraltar, is surely the whipping boys of Group D of the qualifiers, and for sure the remaining three teams will fight it out amongst themselves for the two qualification spots.

The Fiji match in particular looms large with the Lelos having won one and lost one against the Pacific Islanders (both away from home) so far in this RWC cycle. Georgia were one of the automatic qualifiers for the 2019 World Cup after finishing 3rd in their group at the 2015 tournament. They will be looking to at least match that achievement in Pool D this time round against Australia, Wales, Fiji and Uruguay.
