Georgia vs Portugal

Georgia-vs-Portugal-euro2024Georgia’s Euro 2024 fate hangs in the balance as they take on Portugal at the Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen on Wednesday night. The Crusaders are sitting bottom of Group F on a single point that came courtesy of their 1-1 draw with the Czech Republic last time out. In the previous game, they fell to a 3-1 defeat to Turkey but showed plenty of spirit and a willingness to attack, having a total of 15 shots at goal. A similar performance could see them with an outside chance of snatching a surprising victory.

Having already qualified and Turkey now needing a 5-goal margin win to overtake them, Portugal is sitting pretty at the top of the group. That might lead to manager Roberto Martinez shuffling his deck in this game to give key players a well-earned rest and reduce the risk of injuries. Exciting forward Rafael Leao will miss this game due to suspension thanks to the bookings he picked up in both the Czech Republic and Turkey games – both rightly given for diving. That could lead to João Félix or Gonçalo Ramos getting their first minutes of Euro 2024.

It won’t be a surprise to see Portugal priced up as the favourites to win the game in the match result market. There’s little value at all in backing that selection, however. If wholesale changes are made, it can make Portugal’s performance a little disjointed. That’s why we’re instead suggesting Portugal to win and both teams to score in the game. Metz forward Georges Mikautadze has been a revelation this tournament, and he’s worth a bet to score anytime, along with Francisco Conceicao, who may be handed a start thanks to his heroics in the first game against the Czech Republic.
