Georgia vs Portugal Predictions


The handicap for this match is set at 14 points in Georgia’s favour. I feel that is very generous considering this is a World Cup final for Portugal. The pressure is all on Georgia, and while over 80 minutes I fancy Georgia, I feel it will be a rather closely fought encounter.

Head to Head


These two sides met in July 2022 with Georgia coming out on top by 24-13.

Georgia Form


Georgia are in a tight but exciting spot in Pool C of the Rugby World Cup. They were never odds-on to progress to the quarter-finals but they are far more capable of causing upsets than they were in the past.

In their opener, Georgia went down 35-15 to Australia and it is saying a lot about their quality that people were disappointed with the performance. They still have a strong pack, as they always seem to have, but there is quality at the back now, too.

This group is still very open with Fiji beating Australia but losing to Wales. Georgia simply must win this match to get their campaign up and running but will know far bigger challenges lay ahead.

Georgia Injuries & Team News


Georgia are expected to win here but they need to play well. Resting players is not really an option as this game could easily get away from them.

Portugal Form


Portugal impressed everyone in their opening game as they lost 28-8 to Wales. The scoreline did not reflect their very strong performance.

But, going into this game, it is basically Portugal’s World Cup final. Getting out of the group is near impossible for Portugal, but they will want to put down a marker and this is their chance.

Portugal Injuries & Team News


Portugal will be putting out their strongest side for this encounter.

Verdict

Georgia should be good enough to win but I fancy Portugal on the handicap.
