Georgia: Great game in Korea ( Recent Form: L L W L D )
Since the disintegration of the former Soviet Union, Georgia has never managed to qualify for a major tournament despite gifted former players like Temur Ketsbaia, Shota Arveladze and Georgi Kinkladze. Participation in next year's European Championship is also likely to be a difficult story, because in four European Championship qualifying matches, The Crusaders only managed to win points against void Gibraltar (3-0 win). Direct qualification is therefore no longer possible, although the country still has a chance via the play-offs. However, Georgia will want to show its best side on Sunday evening, after having seen all corners of the field against Denmark in Copenhagen with a 5-1 defeat some three months ago. That the Caucasus country can play pretty well we saw last Thursday in Istanbul, Turkey, where it managed to keep South Korea on a 2-2 draw. We find Georgia back in 94th place in the FIFA world ranking, but there was nothing to be seen in the field. Georgia played great football, and was clearly the parent party. National coach Vladimir Weiss can therefore be satisfied, although he will be disappointed that he will not have access to star defender Solomon Kvirkvelia against Denmark either.
Denmark: Looks good ( Recent Form: D D D W W )
Denmark was the big winner in group D of the European Championship qualification last Thursday evening. Not only did the Scandinavians themselves easily win 0-6 from Gibraltar, but they also saw how the competitors Ireland and Switzerland held each other in Dublin on a 1-1 draw. The team of national coach Age Hareide is therefore even more firmly in second place and has European Championship qualification entirely in its own hands. By the way, just like Georgia, the country is already guaranteed to participate in the play-offs on the basis of its performance in the UEFA Nations League, although of course Hareide would prefer not to let it down. To maintain that good starting position, however, a win in and against Georgia is crucial. Naturally, all eyes will be focused on Christian Eriksen again on Sunday evening, who this summer, despite interest from Real Madrid and others, will be on show again this season in the shirt of Tottenham Hotspur. Thanks in part to his creativity and scoring ability - the former Ajax player used two penalties against Gibraltar - the Danes have been scorching in recent months. The five international matches in 2019 yielded no less than seventeen Danish hits, but at the same time the red shirts only managed to keep their goal clean against weak Gibraltar. The Danish defense therefore sometimes makes a mistake.
THE BETTING VERDICT:
After all, Denmark is very determined to compete in the top of Group D with the Republic of Ireland. The trip against Georgia in the 5th match will show the above affirmation of the guest team.
Georgia - Denmark
Pick: Denmark -0.75
