Republic of Ireland vs Georgia Betting Preview – 26/03/2019

Republic of Ireland vs Georgia

The Aviva Stadium will be home to the Republic of Ireland and Georgia this Tuesday as the two sides meet for their second match in the European Championship Qualifiers. Martin O’Neill’s side kicked off their Euro Qualifiers with a win, despite it being a very unconvincing performance against Gibraltar. Georgia head into this match looking to shake off the previous defeat they picked up against Switzerland, but the odds will once again be stacked against them. These two sides have crossed paths a total of nine times in the past and Georgia have never managed to beat their opponents, with them suffering eight defeats and one draw.

The hosts will be expecting to secure all three points from this fixture to keep their hopes of securing a spot in the Euro knockout stages alive, however, they will need the likes of Denmark and Switzerland to drop points. Ireland head into this match having won just one of their last five games, which came most recently against Gibraltar who they beat 1-0. Before this game, Ireland had gone six matches without a win picking up four draws and two defeats. O’Neil will be hoping his side can put an end to their poor home form which has seen them draw two and lose one of their last three home games. SkyBet has the hosts to win priced at 3/5.

Ireland have been struggling in the final third in recent games and the single goal they scored in their last match, was their first goal scored in their last five fixtures. With Ireland struggling to find the back of the net, you may want to back them to score under 1.5 goals with Bet365 who are offering a price of 4/5. All of Ireland’s last five games have ended with less than 2.5 goals scored and Bet365 has under 2.5 goals to be scored priced at 4/7. Jeff Hendrick bagged his sides only goal in their last match and has been priced at 7/2 with Betway to score again.

With the rather large price of 500/1 to qualify from Group D, Georgia’s chances of success in their group look very limited. Georgia’s first fixture of the competition threw them up against Switzerland who eased to a 2-0 victory. This defeat marked Georgia’s first loss they have suffered in their last six games, with them previously showing strong form. Over the last five games, they have secured three wins, one draw and one loss. Bet365 has them to win priced at 6/1.

Although Georgia have never beaten their opponents in the eight times they have met, the last meeting between them ended in a 1-1 draw and with their opponents and SkyBet has a repeat result to happen priced at 6/1. Georgia have only failed to score in one of their last five games played and with their opponents underperforming you may want to back both teams to score. Betway has both teams to score priced at 5/4.
