Ireland News and Form
A goal from Jeff Hendrick after the halftime break gave Ireland a win over Gibraltar on Saturday. The Irish made really hard work though of what should have been an easy game for them. That snapped a six-match winless streak of form that they were on since the start of the Nations League. The Irish only took two points from their Nations League campaign, from two 0-0 draws against Denmark.
Ireland didn’t score a single goal in the 2018 Nations League. So that is just the one goal in their last five games now. In that five-game streak, Ireland’s games have produced just two goals in total. That is because Ireland have taken three clean sheets in their last five. So they aren’t conceding much but aren’t producing in front of goal. Ireland are currently winless and scoreless in three at home.
Ireland v Georgia Head to Head
Georgia and Ireland drew 1-1 in their last meeting
Ireland have won all five previous home games against Georgia
Ireland are W8 D1 L0 in their overall head to head with Georgia
Each of the last three meetings have gone under 2.5 goals
Georgia News and Form
Georgia had an early setback in their qualification campaign as they suffered a 2-0 home loss against Switzerland on Saturday. That actually snapped some good form that they had been on. Georgia had a really good Nations League campaign, winning five of their six games (D1). They picked up a win in all three home games against Latvia, Andorra and Kazakhstan.
So while it wasn’t the toughest of opposition faced, it saw them in a good, confident mood. They didn’t quite deliver on the weekend though. Georgia have failed to score in their last three visits to Ireland but after seeing the Irish struggle so badly against Gibraltar, Georgia have to have hope of getting out of this trip without defeat. Looking back at their 2018 World Cup qualification campaign, Georgia failed to win a game, taking a D5 L5 record in a group which contained Ireland and Wales.
