Thursday is a big day for all football fans in Georgia and North Macedonia, as one of these teams is going to qualify for EURO for the first time in history. UEFA Nations League’s a bit complex system has allowed one squad from lower-tier quality to make an appearance on the big scene. Who is it going to be?
The odds are pointing at direction of a narrow contest – odds on home win are 2.70 at the moment, 2.90 on North Macedonia to win the match in regular time.
Georgia vs North Macedonia Head-to-head
Interestingly, these two teams are in the same UEFA Nations League bracket this season and both of their h2h’s ended with identical 1-1 score. In both occasions Georgia had an early lead and one man advantage in the second half.
These two games was the only time Georgia faced North Macedonia in history.
Georgia vs North Macedonia Prediction
Both sides have achieved same results in the last five international appearances, having two victories and three draws. Georgia were victorious against Estonia 1-0 and Belarus 1-0.
Tornike Okriashvili has scored a lot of goals lately, and big majority of those came from a penalty spot. Players with a lot of experience and worth mentioning are Saba Lobzhanidze who is currently a member of Turkish squad Ankaragucu and Nika Kacharava from Lech Poznan. This trio should represent the biggest danger for the Macedonian defenders.
As for their opposition, North Macedonia have picked up a decent pace lately. One of the best performances this year was 2-1 home win against Kosovo in UEFA Nations League in early October. They were also successful in Skopje against Armenia, winning the game once again with 2-1 score.
We are expecting very safe approach from both sides on Thursday. This match is of historic importance, and no one can afford cheap mistake early on. Under 1.5 FT is our primary betting suggestion.
