Luxembourg vs Georgia
Date: Tuesday, 5th June 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Josy Barthel, Luxembourg.
Luxembourg have caused a lot of upsets in the previous campaign and performed well in international friendlies, so it is fair to say they no longer belong to the lowest European tier. This Tuesday they will have another test in front of the home crowd. Georgia are coming at Stade Josy Barthel and we should witness an exciting clash.
Judging by the odds, this should be a narrow contest. Luxembourg played against World Cup participants and one of the best African teams Senegal a couple of days ago. They managed to stop Sadio Mane and co, holding them to a goalless draw. Before that in early 2018, Luxembourg connected three straight wins against Hungary, Karlsruher and Malta.
As for their opposition, Georgia are the main reason why Wales and Republic of Ireland didn’t advance to the World Cup. Overall that campaign was better than the previous four for them, so expectations from upcoming UEFA Nations League are high. Georgia’s opponents there will be Kazakhstan, Latvia and Andorra, which makes them a big favourite for the first place.
Luxembourg vs Georgia: Head-to-head
- Teams have met eight times in the past, but only once recently (in 2016).
- Kazakhstan won in three encounters, while losing only two.
- The average number of goals scored in their duels is at 2.40 per match.
Luxembourg vs Georgia Predictions
This is a clash of two teams on the rise. I have no doubts we will see an action packed match, followed with mid to high number of goals. As for the full time winner market, draw seems like the most realistic outcome. The current price you can get is 3.20.
As for the goals market, I fancy the both teams to score option. Georgia bagged nine goals in the last four outings, while Luxembourg scored against every team with similar quality.
