Competition: Nations League

Market: Georgia win to nil

Odds: 1/2 @ 888sport

Looking to open this year’s Nations League run with a flurry on home soil, Georgia will welcome Gibraltar to the Boris Paichadze Dinamo Arena on Thursday evening.

Starting with the hosts, last seen back on March 29th when playing out a gritty 0-0 stalemate away at Albania in a friendly contest, the mood in Georgia’s camp should be at a real high. While the Crusaders might have failed to lay down much of a blow during their World Cup qualifying run last year, Head Coach Willy Sagnol has seen his side gain plenty of plaudits. Signing off their Group B campaign with an eye-catching 2-0 win against Sweden on home soil, it should be highlighted that the Reds are unbeaten in each of their previous five matchups across all formats. Smelling the chance to lay down a real marker when they open their Nations League run on Thursday evening, Georgia have also continued to shine at the back. It’s worth noting, the midweek hosts have conceded just a single strike on their five-match unbeaten run.

As for the visitors, last seen back during March’s international break having to settle for a sluggish back-to-back 0-0 stalemates against the Faroe island and Grenada, Gibraltar are in the midst of a real rut. Signing off 2021 with a dreadful 3-1 drumming against Latvia on home soil, Head Coach Julio César Ribas now finds his side enduring a 17-match winless run across all formats. Knowing that they face a huge task when they travel to the Boris Paichadze Dinamo Arena on Thursday evening, it should also be noted that Gibraltar hold a woeful record against their midweek opponents. Including a thumping 3-0 defeat the last time they made the trip to Georgia back in 2019, we’re backing what should be a routine home victory for Sagnol’s high-flying squad here.

Bet: Georgia 1/2 to beat Gibraltar to nil in Thursday’s Nations League battle @ 888sport
