Poland vs Georgia by Shibby
Saturday 13th June 2015, 17:00 kick off (UK Time). Poland vs Georgia. Euro 2016 qualification game will see Group D leaders Poland host 5th placed Georgia in a game that looks set for goals. There are only potentially 3 places up for grabs in Group D and I think that 2 of them 3 will be won by Poland and World Champions, Germany. The potential 3rd in my opinion will go to Scotland (Sorry Ireland Fans).
The hosts Poland are the only unbeaten team in Group D thus far, they’ve even beat world champions Germany 2-0 at home back in October. Confidence will be very high within the Polish camp and I can understand why, they have a very strong squad and have every chance of winning the group! They have also got the best goal difference (+13 from just 5 games). They have had a few disappointing results during this qualifying campaign, drawing 1-1 away at Ireland and drawing 2-2 at home to Scotland! So I know they can sometimes slip up, however, I think they will be fully motivated for this game knowing that chasers Germany have an easy game away at Gibraltar, which they will win, the question is by how many! With this in mind I think Poland will also want to increase their goal difference and bag a few vs Georgia to keep the upper hand.
Their previous game vs Georgia back in November 2014 ended 4-0 in favour of the Poles. They totally dominated the game from start to finish and Georgia never looked like scoring. Georgia did sit back a little and the tactics looked as though they were playing for a point, which was looking good up to half time (0-0). However, once Poland broke the deadlock this opened the floodgates for Poland and there was no stopping them, the game finished 4-0 to Poland.
The Poland manager Nawalka should have a fully fit squad to select from, the main squad member, Lewandowski will lead the team out, hopefully to a victory.
Georgia on the other hand head into the game having won 1 and lost 4 of their 5 qualifying games so far. The game they won was nothing major to shout about, they beat Gibraltar 3-0 away from home in October 2014. They did have a lot of possession in this game, however, this would be expected considering their opponents! Gibraltar have won just 1 game (1-0 at home to Malta). Georgia have only lost by 1 goal vs Scotland and Ireland, however, when they’ve played against the top 2 teams they’ve lost 2-0 and 4-0 and both of these games was on home soil! I was a fan of the Georgia manager Ketsbaia back in his playing days, however, he has a tough task on his hands with the Georgia squad, considering the group they are in. Like Poland, Georgia have a fully fit squad to select from, I expect another defensive display, however, I just think Poland will have too much for Georgia.
I’ve decided to provide this tip early as I’ve just backed it myself at a great price of 2.00, I have no doubt this will drop as the kick off gets closer. I will be backing Poland -1.5 AH @ a price of 2.00 with BetVictor. I can see Poland winning at least by 2 goals, hopefully more.
