Georgia vs Wales
World Cup Qualifiers – Europe (Group D)
Date: Friday, 6th October 2017
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Boris Paichadze National Stadium (Tbilisi).
It is a three-horse race in Group D with Serbia, Wales and Ireland all involved in a tight tussle with 2 round left to play. Serbia are top of the group with 18 points, but Wales behind them are a 4-point gap. Meantime, Ireland at third is 5 points behind the leaders and 1 short of their neighbors.
Wales along with Serbia are unbeaten in the group. But they drew a fair share of their games, otherwise would have turned the table upside down. Persistent injuries to Gareth Bale had affected their game plan, who once again watch the qualifying match from the stands.
Georgia are yet to register a win in the competition, but they are the team that brought this group to a close finish with their ability to hole teams to stalemates. Five of their eight games so far have been draws and they had stolen points from Ireland, Wales and Serbia.
Georgia vs Wales: Head-to-head
Wales are win-less in their four meetings with Georgia in all competitions, lost 3 and drew 1.
The reverse leg of the corresponding fixture was a 1-1 draw.
Georgia vs Wales: Predictions
Wales are without their star player Gareth Bale, but this is hardly going to make an impact on Friday’s match. The Read Madrid striker has been underwhelming for club and country in recent months and certainly Wales is not a one-man team.
For Georgia, there is little incentive to play for and they are looking for their first win in the competition. The draws against Ireland and Serbia could be a huge confidence booster. Yet, they do not have the quality to get into a different zone.
For me, Wales remain favorites to win this one as they are one of the most consistent defensive units in the competition.
Correct Score Prediction: Georgia 0-1 Wales for 6.10 odds
