Georgia vs Portugal Preview 

Georgia

The Georgian national team are playing in their first major international tournament in the country’s history. Already in their first match against Turkey, they delivered one of the best performances of Euro 2024. Georgia came close to claiming a point in the final minutes, but a header struck the bar, leading to a 1-3 loss.

In their second group stage match, Georgia opened the scoring with a penalty, but in the last minute, Saba Lobjanidze wasted a glorious opportunity on a counterattack. With a 3-on-1 advantage in the offense, the Atlanta United forward failed to find the net, and the match ended in a 1-1 draw.

The upcoming match against Portugal is crucial. Only a victory will guarantee the Crusaders a spot in the playoffs, which will be hard to pull off.

Portugal

Portugal are showing excellent form at the European Championship. After two rounds, they have secured 6 points with victories over Turkey and the Czech Republic. Although there was initial skepticism surrounding Roberto Martinez, he has managed to silence his critics so far.

However, the tournament started with some difficulty for Portugal. Previously, the Spanish coach had won all ten official matches with a total goal difference of 36:2, but problems arose against the Czech Republic

In the second half of that match, Lukáš Provod opened the scoring from outside the penalty area. Despite this setback, Portugal managed a comeback, and in injury time, Francisco Conceição hit the net, securing a 2-1 victory.

In the second round, the Portuguese played at their usual high level, defeating Turkey 3-0. They dominated the match from start to finish, giving their opponents no chance.

Georgia vs Portugal Head-to-Head Statistics 

Portugal and Georgia played only one match against each other, which took place in 2008. The friendly ended with Portugal winning the game 2-0, thanks to goals from João Moutinho and Simão. 

Interestingly, two players from that squad are still playing for Portugal – Pepe and Cristiano Ronaldo. On the Georgian side, goalkeeper Giorgi Loria, who was part of the squad back then, now has a bench role.

Georgia vs Portugal Player Focus 

Georgia have arrived at EURO2024 with a balanced squad featuring several formidable players. Among them, Metz forward Georges Mikautadze stands out, having scored both of Georgia’s goals and emerging as one of the leaders in the top goalscorers list. His speed and technique make him a formidable threat to opponents.

Giorgi Mamardashvili made 10 saves against the Czech Republic, earning him the Man of the Match title and setting a current record for Euro 2024.

While Khvicha Kvaratskhelia might be far from his best form, his presence is always a headache for defenders. Meanwhile, Giorgi Kochorashvili has become an undisputed leader in the midfield, effectively controlling the tempo and initiating attacks for Georgia.

On the Portuguese side, Cristiano Ronaldo remains a key figure. Even at 39, he continues to be highly motivated, with 130 international goals to his name. He will be eager to score his first goal of this Euro against Georgia.

Bruno Fernandes and Bernardo Silva are crucial for Portugal’s chances in the midfield in the later stages of the tournament. Both players consistently dictate play and create opportunities.

Pepe, 41, is the oldest player at the tournament. The former Real Madrid defender shows no signs of slowing down and stands as a brick wall in the defence. 

Georgia vs Portugal Tactical Analysis 

Georgia will most likely stick to their original 3-5-2 formation in this game, with wingbacks having a major role in the offence. Despite having only acquired one point so far, this strategy seems to be their best approach.

Portugal, on the other hand, will either choose 4-3-3 or 3-5-2 formation, depending on Roberto Martinez’s decision. Tactically versatile, Portugal can easily readjust their formation depending on the course of the game.

Georgia vs Portugal Prediction 

  • Football pick: Georgia or Draw
  • Odds: 3.11 (22Bet)
  • Score prediction: Georgia 1-1 Portugal

In a different scenario, the outcome of this match would have been predictable. Despite showing entertaining football in their debut tournament, the experiences of Georgia and Portugal are not comparable with each other.

However, there is an important nuance. Portugal have already secured first place ahead of schedule and are unlikely to play with full motivation against the Georgians. 

Considering that they are one of the favorites to win EURO2024 and might have a long road ahead, Roberto Martinez will likely rest some key players, including the oldest player of the tournament – Pepe.

For Georgia, some have dubbed this game as the match of the century. They will be highly motivated to play, as only a victory will help them qualify for the round of 16. This heightened motivation could be the determining factor. Therefore, our Euro 2024 prediction is for Georgia not to lose this meeting.

Georgia vs Portugal Betting Tip 

  • Football Pick: Both Teams to Score
  • Odds: 1.82 (22Bet)

We have every reason to expect a high-scoring affair in the upcoming confrontation. Georgia have nothing to lose, needing only a win to advance. Under Willy Sagnol, they play every match cheerfully and effectively.

The Crusaders have scored 43 goals in their last 11 matches (3.91 on average per game), exchanging goals in both of their previous Euro 2024 encounters. The Portuguese national team have scored and conceded a total of 65 goals in the last 17 matches (3.82 on average per game). 

Based on these stats, the optimal EURO 2024 prediction seems to be that both teams will score with odds of 1.85. Georgia will push forward in the offence, allowing their opponents to take advantage of free space and create chances on counterattacks.
