Georgia Vs North Macedonia: 1-1
Drawing three of their last fixtures, North Macedonia have had the gusty and gritty Stole Dimitrievski to thank for extending the club’s unbeaten spree to six ties. He’s not only parried away a string of shots but has distributed the ball perfectly as well to pull off quick attacking plays.
In 10 of Georgia’s last 11 wins at home, the side has gone onto keep cleansheets. The club has made its soil a real bastion, a stronghold where side’s have found it improbable to breach their backline and score.
And given the magnitude of today’s clash, Georgia are going to thrust everything they have into embedding in place a cleansheet. Its one they can easily pull off as well to see us opt for all of Guran Kashia, Otar Kakabadze and Solomon Kvirkvelia from the side.
The versatile duo of Jaba Kankava and Nika Kvekveskiri has been integral to Georgia’s defensive aspirations as well. The two have not only clobbered attacking plays sent down their way but have recovered the ball as well to turnover possession.
North Macedonia on the other hand see us opt for a partnership as well in this slot. In Eljif Elmas and Ezgjan Alioski, the side has two indomitable names, players who can with disdain send any attack packing by taming them with their aerial duels.
Scoring six goals in his last seven appearance for Georgia, Tornike Okriashvili has been the spearhead of his side’s attacking setup. The visitors on the other hand see us opt for the pick of their leading scorer with Goran Pandev’s 35 goals being the most ever scored by anyone from the country.
The extradonaire Ilija Nestorovski will join him up for the contest, two players who are capable of making life a throbbing headache for the hosts.
