Ireland To Edge To A Narrow Win Over Georgia in Tbilisi
Republic of Ireland face a tricky trip to Tbilisi for Saturday evening's 2018 World Cup qualifier against Georgia but we fancy Martin O'Neill's team have enough about them to secure the three points that would strengthen their position in Group D...
- Ireland have won all eight of their previous meetings with Georgia
- Six of Ireland's eight wins against Georgia have come by a one goal margin

The Story So Far
Ireland start the day joint-top of Group D with Serbia after going unbeaten in qualifying so far, winning three and drawing three of their games, and they head into this weekend's fixture as best price 4/5 favourites with Bet 365.
The Irish take on a Georgia side that certainly hasn't been embarrassed during the qualification campaign but they have lacked the quality to turn competitive displays into winning ones. They sit in fifth place in the table after drawing three and losing three of their fixtures, and they are 9/2 to win or 5/2 to draw on Saturday.
A Narrow Ireland Win
Two of Georgia's three defeats in qualifying have come by a single goal margin and we are going to back Ireland to win by one goal at 23/10 with Paddy Power.
It is a bet that has paid out in six of the eight meetings between these two nations, with Ireland winning all eight previous clashes. O'Neill's men edged to a 1-0 win in Dublin in October of last year and it could be a similar story this weekend.
There is rarely too much to choose between these sides as Ireland won 2-1 away and 1-0 at home when they also met during qualifying for Euro 2016.
Another common trend from recent meetings is that the last three meetings have been level at half-time before Ireland found a second-half winner and it is worth noting that the Irish have managed just two first-half goals during this qualifying campaign, so the half-time draw and full-time Ireland win at 7/2 (Bet Victor) is worthy of consideration.
