Georgia vs Wales – 2018 World Cup Qualification: Georgia’s National team wasn’t one of the contenders who were expected to fight for qualification
But the truth is they have been a tough team to beat on this stage.
Georgia have 5 points in 8 matches, thanks to the 5 draws they have got so far. This team doesn’t have any great stars on their roster and most of their players play in Eastern European leagues.
Georgia is already out of the race for World Cup’s qualification, but facing Wales and Serbia, they might influence the final result of this group.
As I’ve said before, they are a team without any big stars, without flashy style, but they know how to defend and have shown some defensive organization in the back.
They are coming off 3 straight draws, with the last one being away from home in Austria.
Wales are a team that has been improving a lot. They have strong players but they have improved a lot as a team and their experience at Euro 2016 has certainly strengthened the team.
Now Wales are a team who is fighting to qualify for EURO and World Cup, which was something that didn’t happen before.
They have in Gareth Bale and Ramsey the big references of the team, but players like Williams, Allen or Kanu have also had an important role.
Wales sit in 2nd place and they need to win here to put some pressure on Serbia who will play away in Austria.
Wales are coming off 2 straight wins: 1-0 at home over the Austrians and 2-0 away in Moldova on a match where the goal came very late.
The young talent Woodburn was on the spotlight for both of those matches since he scored the winning goal against Austria and got the assist to Kanu on their 1st goal against Moldova.
Georgia vs Wales – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Wales will have a very tough match away in Greece, who was already able to get 5 draws on this group stage.
The Welsh know that only winning matters in this match, otherwise they might even compromise their 2nd position on this group.
They play first, at 17:00 and they really need to win in order not to depend on any other results.
This team has been doing well and on the attacking front they have a lot of quality options so I believe they will win in Georgia.
Just like they got in Moldova, I expect them to get a good support from the Welsh fans who will travel to Georgia, a country that is not known for its hostile atmospheres.
Wales to win is a good bet here.
