Reasons for betting on Georgia vs Republic of Ireland tip
The Irish national team will have an arduous task in Georgia. They need to win. Otherwise, Serbia will probably be left alone at the top of the group D. Also, they will have to save some players for the ultimate derby of the group against the Serbians who are coming to Ireland on 5th of September.
Meanwhile, Georgia has produced several surprises in these qualifications. They even had a chance to win some matches, but the inexperience prevented this from happening.
The Crusaders have recorded 3 defeats, and 3 draws so far. But recently they have improved, and when counting international friendly games, they haven’t lost in 3 straight matches. Also, during that span, they have scored 10 goals. Vladimir Weiss is improving this selection, and as the time goes by, the Georgians are getting better and better. In each game played in the qualifications, Georgia had a chance to record much better results. They were leading against Wales in an away match, and against Serbia at home. During the first game in Ireland, 0-1, it was evident that this nation is no longer the opportunity for others to improve their goal difference.
Republic of Ireland overview
Martin O’Neill has a headache because many of the players have problems with injuries. Already, James McCarthy and Jeff Hendrick, are out from the squad. Many players are doubtful for the matches, Kieren Westwood, David Meyler, and Jonathan Walters are uncertain for the contest in Tbilisi.

The Boys in Green are fantastic on the road in these qualifications, and they brought back 7 points from 3 games. In each match, the Irish scored at least one goal and in two of them, 2 or more. Counter-attacks are their biggest advantage.

The Republic of Ireland has a perfect record against Georgia. 8 matches in history and 8 victories, with a dominant goal difference of 16-4.
Prediction for Georgia vs Republic of Ireland tip
The home team would like to put down at least one win in front of their fans. It is why we think that they are going to start this match pretty offensively and because of this our first suggestion would be a moderate number of goals between two and three.
For the second suggestion, our pick would be a bit risky, but we just have to back up the Republic of Ireland. This match is possibly the most significant for them in these qualifiers.
