Georgia faces a daunting challenge as they prepare to take on Portugal in their final Group F match at Euro 2024. 

Georgia must secure a win to have any chance of advancing to the knockout stages with just one point from their draw against the Czech Republic. Managed by Willy Sagnol, the team has shown determination and spirit, but overcoming Portugal is a tall order.

In their last match, Georgia made history by earning their first-ever Euros point. However, their earlier loss to Turkey highlighted their vulnerability. Now, they need a miracle win against Portugal who have already qualified for the next round. The odds are stacked against them, but Georgia’s never-say-die attitude might just spring a surprise.

Led by Roberto Martínez Portugal have already booked their place in the last 16. After a narrow win over the Czech Republic and a convincing victory against Turkey, they sit comfortably atop Group F. 

A point against Georgia will confirm their position as group leaders, though it seems almost assured already.

Portugal’s star-studded squad, featuring the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, João Félix, and Diogo Jota, is expected to dominate. Martínez might rotate his squad giving other players a chance to shine, but the team’s depth and quality make them formidable opponents. 

They aim to finish the group stage on a high note, maintaining their unbeaten record and building momentum for the knockout rounds.

Georgia are expected to stick with the same lineup that drew with the Czech Republic. The only potential change might see Watford’s Giorgi Chakvetadze replace Zuriko Davitashvili up front. 

Several players, including Giorgi Gvelesiani, Guram Kashia, Giorgi Kochorashvili, Solomon Kvirkvelia, and Anzor Mekvabishvili, are at risk of suspension if they receive another booking. This could impact their availability should Georgia make it to the round of 16.
