Republic of Ireland vs Georgia Match Preview
Republic of Ireland have turned a narrow contest at Gibraltar (0-1) their way with a single goal from Jeffrey Hendrick and now host Georgia for their Tuesday’s clash hoping to build on their performance and make it two out of two in EURO 2020 Qualifiers.
Boys in Green have thus only ended a six-match winless streak across competitions and with struggles to create chances and convert them, Mick McCarthy will surely hope his men can now produce in front of the crowd at Aviva Stadium. They’ve failed to find the net in last three occasions here, though, and this could be more worrying.
Georgia will be no easy target either and they travel to Dublin with a rather narrow 0-2 loss to Switzerland behind them, where they showed off as a tough side defensively but also had their chances. They will now look for more looking to boost their chances at a top 2 spot and promise another solid challenge here.
Jvarosnebi have enjoyed their Nations League campaign beforehand and convincingly topped the group in League D to make their way to C, as they earned five wins and a draw in six outings beforehand. They will now be very motivated to show their worth and make use of the rivals’ struggles for consistency.
We will now stick our necks out for Georgia to leave Aviva Stadium unbeaten and we’ll go for a Draw at 9/4 with bet365, hoping for a narrow contest and deadlock tough to break on Tuesday evening.
We do feel we’re in for rock-solid defensive displays on both ends here and with that in mind, we’re also going for a low-scoring contest and Under 2.5 Goals FT at 4/7 with William Hill. We’ve seen such clashes on both ends on the regular and this does feel like a banker bet at this point.
