Georgia and North Macedonia face off on Friday in a League C Group 4 Nations League game at Boris Paichadze Dinamo Arena. When these two teams faced off on June 9th it was Georgia that secured the 3-0 victory. 

Georgia comes into this game sitting 1st place in the group, have picked up 10 points. Georgia’s last game was against Bulgaria on June 12th, and the offense just couldn’t get anything going. They had 62 percent of the possession, but they only had two shots on goal, but they couldn’t find the back of the net. Two games ago against North Macedonia, the offense was strong, and they secured the 3-0 victory. Jemal Tabidze is dealing with an injury, and he won’t be able to go in this game. Georgia is expected to start a young team here led by Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, who is having a strong season with Napoli. In this game, Georgia is going to need the offense to run up the score early. 

On the other side of this matchup is North Macedonia, who sits in second place in the group having picked up seven points. Their last game against Gibraltar and the offense was strong in that game, scoring four goals. All four goals were scored in the first 31 minutes of the game. North Macedonia had 72 percent of the possession and eight shots on target on the way to the victory. Captain Stefan Ristovski is dealing with an injury and won’t be available to go in this game. Aleksandar Trajkovski has scored 20 goals for the National team, and he’s expected to start in this game. 

The last time these two teams faced off, Georgia scored three goals, and North Macedonia is coming off a game where they scored four goals. I expect both offenses to find success scoring here, and that is going to be the difference as this game is going to go over the total. Back the over to cash.
