Georgia managed to get to these playoffs due to their decent performance in the UEFA Nations League, with their qualification round for the Euro 2024 was quite poor in both results and game showed. Greece, on the other side, saw quite an improvement in its game, and coupled with Gus Poyet coaching experience, can propel Greece to the final round for the first time in 12 years. Another positive moment for this match’s guests is favourable statistics in head to head matches - the teams played 8 matches with Greece never losing once, securing 5 wins and 3 draws. Moreover, all 4 matches that were played in Tbilisi, ended with the win of the Greek national team. 

Georgia vs Greece Preview 

Georgia Preview

After an outstanding performance in the Nations League, Georgia confidently beat Luxembourg (2-0), showing an impressive build-up even before the red card of Maxime Chanot and without the team’s main star, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, who is expected to come back to starting line up in the match against Greece. Willy Sagnol was pleased with the team’s performance and Georgia is expecting to keep this momentum for the final match. Moreover, Georgia is unbeaten in the last four games at home, and even given the unfavourable statistics in head to head matches with the Greeks, the team can be optimistic about its chances.

Greece Preview 

Greece showed a serious improvement in recent years, which was especially evident in the defensive play. After 20 games in charge under Poyet, Greece won 12, and 10 of them was without conceding a goal. In the previous round, the Greeks upstaged Kazakhstan (5-0) and are ready for the clash with Georgia. Having their key players Georgios Masouras and Anastasios Bakasetas in almost perfect shape, Poyet expects to show another defensive masterclass in Tbilisi that will allow the team to claim one of the last tickets to Germany this summer. Another layer of optimism also comes from the head to head statistics, even though Greece have kept a clean sheet only once while being a guest side.

Betting Tips for Georgia vs Greece

To Qualify - Greece

While Georgia’s dream of reaching Euro finals for the first time can be an inspirational story, the reality is that Greece under Poyet built a versatile team with almost impeccable defensive lines. In addition to being unbeaten against Greece in head to head matches, Georgians can possibly rely only on the potential magic of Kvaratskhelia, who is shining not that bright as it was last season. For this Georgia vs Greece prediction, Unibet gives 1.55.

Total Goals Under 2.5

Greece is quite pedantic when it comes to such important matches. Once triumphant of Euro 2004, the team knows how to control such matches, especially when the opponent plays an asymmetrical game with an obvious emphasis on a certain zone or a player. Poyet knows that there is no need to rush and patiently waiting for the chances, that will certainly come, will be a key motto behind the Greek game in this match. Georgia vs. Greece odds for this outcome, as defined by Unibet, are 1.56.

Total Corners Under 9.5

Georgia is among the lowest corner taking countries on the continent, with only 2 average corners per match during the qualifying round. Greece has higher numbers, with 6.1 corners per match, but these corners were taken in matches where the team enjoyed full control over the ball. Georgia at home is unlikely to give up the ball to the opponents, and will attempt to push for their game. In these settings, it is unlikely that there will be a lot of corners in this match. Unibet gives 1.59 for this Georgia vs. Greece tip.
