Georgia vs Ireland Prediction
The hosts have not tasted success in their last two games in a row, and have salvaged no more than four points from a possible fifteen so far. Their previous clash at home saw them hold Denmark to a stalemate, prior to which the latter thrashed them on the road with a whopping 5-0 scorecard.
Their counterparts for the weekend are enjoying the view at the top of the table and for good reason. Mick Mccarthy’s men have a two-point cushion over Denmark at the helm and have picked up the win thrice from their last five matchups.
Furthermore, the visitors are unbeaten in all of their outings. The away side have not admitted defeat against this foe in any of their previous ten head to head meetings either, which certainly tips the scales in favor of Ireland to come away with all three points on Thursday.
Additionally, the guests have been a lot more clinical after the break and have scored their only two goals on the road in the second half of their respective games. Taking into account that two out of their previous three visits to Georgian soil have also seen visitors score in the latter forty minutes, by all means, count on Ireland to breach this foe post the restart.
Also, neither team have been racking up the goals tally in their recent head to head clashes. All of their last four meetings have featured under 2.5 goals on the charts. One of which, incidentally, was at this very same venue.
Moreover, Georgia have scored no more than three goals from their fixtures at home. While their foes Ireland, have netted just twice from their previous two outings. Given that their most recent meeting also saw just one goal on the scoreboards, a low scoring affair is certainly looming large in this one.
