Georgia vs Republic of Ireland Betting Tips


Republic of Ireland should have the upper hand when they travel to the Boris Paichadze Dinamo Arena for a Euro 2020 qualifier against Georgia. The Irish are yet to taste defeat in the qualifiers and are backed to come out on top against Georgia who have just one win.

Georgia Form & Team News


Georgia were held to a 0-0 draw at home by Denmark in their previous qualifying fixture. They were lucky to come away with a point having been dominated by the Danes and mustering just a single attempt on target throughout the match.

The result means Georgia have only one win in five matches leaving them second from bottom in Group D. They are priced at odds of 3.75 for an unlikely win on Saturday while a draw is set at odds of 3.00.

Georgia have not been prolific in attack and have scored just four goals in the qualifiers. Giorgi Kvilitala is the man often tasked with leading the line for the hosts, but the striker has scored just once in his last six international appearances.

Republic of Ireland Form & Team News


Ireland are coming off a 3-1 victory at home against Bulgaria in an international friendly. Alan Browne and Kevin Long were both on target while James Collins came off the bench to add the third four minutes from time.

The Irish are having a fine qualifying campaign as they currently sit two points clear at the top of Group B having gone unbeaten in five matches. Mick McCarthy’s men have claimed four wins in their last six matches which makes them good value for another victory in Georgia at odds of 2.20.

Ireland’s superb campaign has been driven by a sturdy defence having conceded just two goals in the group. John Egan and Kevin Long often feature in central defence while James Collins is likely to start in attack after scoring on his debut last time out.

Georgia vs Republic of Ireland Head to Head 


Republic of Ireland have never lost to Georgia and have claimed nine wins and one draw from 10 previous matches. The Irish claimed a 1-0 victory in the reverse fixture in Dublin with Conor Hourihane getting the only goal.

Georgia vs Republic of Ireland Betting Odds


At odds of 3.75, Georgia are outsiders on Saturday while Republic of Ireland are favourites at 2.20 with a draw set at odds of 3.00. A win to nil is priced at 3.10 with a -1 handicap bet set at 4.75 and a correct score of 2-0 offered at odds of 9.00 on bet365.

Georgia vs Republic of Ireland Match Up


Georgia have failed to score in three of their last five qualifying matches. Star man Giorgi Kvilitala has just one goal in his last six international appearances, and is likley to find things difficult on Saturday.

Ireland often pride themselves on their hard work and organisation and have kept four clean sheets in their last six Euro qualifiers. The duo of John Egan and Kevin Long will be confident of shutting out the Georgia attack while James Collins will carry the team’s attacking threat.
