Green Army To Make Winning Start In Georgia
Ireland To Beat Georgia
Football legend Matt Le Tissier gives Freebets.com an exclusive betting tip for Georgia v Rep Ireland in Euro 2016 qualification.
Group D looks a highly competitive pool with Poland, Scotland and Republic of Ireland likely to fight it out for the runner-up spot behind current World Champions Germany, and the Boys in Green will be hoping to get off to a good start in Tbilisi.
A lack of star names for the hosts suggests that they will perhaps struggle to qualify for Euro 2016, but just last year they managed to hold France to a 0-0 draw and Georgia will be hoping to cause a few more upsets in the coming campaign.
Ireland goals from Kevin Doyle and Alex Pearce secured a 2-0 warm-up win over Oman at the Aviva Stadium on Wednesday. Barring a couple of absentees, Martin O’Neill’s squad looks in good shape as he prepares to take charge of his first competitive game since he was appointed as Giovanni Trapattoni’s successor last November.
Matt Le Tissier Tips: “The Republic of Ireland should beat Georgia, the hosts are an improving side, but the 11/8 with SkyBet on Martin O’Neill’s men claiming the victory seems a fair price.”
James McClean will not take part in the clash with Georgia having been deemed unfit, meaning Martin O’Neill may retain the likes of Robbie Brady or Stephen Quinn here.
Ireland have won all five previous meetings between these sides including a 4-0 success in their most recent clash at the Aviva Stadium last year.
