Ireland vs Georgia
Europe – Euro Qualifiers
Date: Tuesday, 26th March 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Aviva Stadium (Dublin).
Ireland has got a favorable setting for them to jump to the top spot of the table. They are going against one of the worst teams in the entire competition, and on top of that, they have the additional home advantage to count on. Add to this the fact that, the current toppers, Switzerland, is taking on Denmark, which has no chance to be an easy game.
Georgia, along with Gibraltar, is surely the whipping boys of Group D of the qualifiers, and for sure the remaining three teams will fight it out amongst themselves for the two qualification spots. The presence of Georgia in League D of the Nations League might have given them some favorable fixtures, but they surely are no match for teams that are actively pursuing spots in the upcoming main event of the Euros.
Ireland vs Georgia Head-to-head (h2h)
- Ireland has a 100% unbeaten record in h2h ties.
- Except for a single draw, Ireland might have had a 100% winning record.
- The nine games so far returned eight Ireland wins and a draw.
- At home, Ireland boasts of a 100% winning record.

Ireland vs Georgia Prediction
Georgia took part in League D of the recently concluded Nations League, while Ireland was included in League B. Moreover, Ireland is at home and has begun its qualifier games with a win. Georgia, meanwhile, lost their first game and even failed to score.
Furthermore, Ireland has a chance to take the top spot, considering Sweden, the current pole position holder, is taking on a tough customer in Switzerland.
In addition, Ireland has a 100% unbeaten record against Georgia, and if not for a lone draw, would have registered a 100 % winning record. At home, though, they definitely do hold such a record in h2h games, and this time there’s no need for an exception. Also, Georgia has returned only one goal in their five away games against Ireland.
Finally, Georgia was winless in 16 of their last 19 matches on the road, whereas Ireland was unbeaten in five of their last six games.
Expect the hosts to come in strong, and take control of the game right away. They are definitely in line for the three points.
