Georgia vs Greece Preview

Georgia vs Greece will take place at the Boris Paichadze Dinamo Arena in Tbilisi in a Euro 2024 Qualification Playoff match on March 26.

The hosts will enter this game on the back of a decent run of form. They have lost just once in their last five games across competitions, with most of those being goal-fests. Before that, Georgia lost three straight games, conceding 11 goals and scoring just two. Their last game was a 2-0 win over Luxembourg as Budu Zivzivadze’s brace was enough for the result. They were looking for another good result to help them progress to the next qualifying round.

The visitors, on the other hand, entered this game on the back of a similar good run of form. With just one defeat in their last six games, recording four wins and a draw, they were in good shape. In that span, they scored 16 goals and conceded just three. Greece’s last outing was a comprehensive 5-0 home win over Kazakhstan as they looked to build momentum ahead of their final game. They were looking for a good result to progress.

With that said, let’s take a look at the team news coming out of both camps.
