Georgia vs Spain Prediction & Match Preview



28 March 2021 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET World Cup Qual

Boris Paichadze Dinamo Arena will host Sunday’s World Cup qualifier between Georgia and Spain. 

The Georgians aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Sweden, but they face yet another difficult task against la Furia Roja. 

Anorthosis attacker Giorgi Kvilitaia should continue to lead the line for the hosts despite failing to open his goalscoring account in Sweden.

Spain dropped two points in a 1-1 draw with Greece, and, no doubt, they are determined to return to winning ways in Group B. 

Barcelona winger Ansu Fati remains sidelined with injury, while Sergio Ramos is a major doubt after being substituted at the half-time break in the group opener. 

Anyhow, Luis Enrique has a number of talented footballers to choose from, and we predict that the Spaniards are going to prove their worth on the field. 

Juventus attacker Alvaro Morata should keep his place up front in the 4-3-3 formation.

Team News:

Georgia did not pick up any injury problems during their clash with Sweden on Thursday, meaning that Sagnol will have the same squad to choose from for this match.

There are not expected to be any changes to the starting XI against Spain, with Giorgi Kvilitaia, who has scored five times in 26 appearances for his national side, likely to lead the line once again.

Jaba Kankava is the captain and leading goalscorer in the squad with 10 goals, and the 35-year-old should again line up as part of a two-man midfield alongside Giorgi Aburjania.

As for Spain, Sergio Ramos only played 45 minutes against Greece, but Enrique revealed that it was agreed before the match that the Real Madrid centre-back would only feature in the first half.

Ramos should therefore retain his spot in the side for this match, while Marcos Llorente could again get the nod at right-back, with Dani Carvajal and Sergi Roberto both absent through injury.

Morata's goal against Greece should see the 28-year-old retain his spot in attack, while Dani Olmo and Ferran Torres could again feature in the wide areas, leaving Mikel Oyarzabal and Pedri on the bench.

Jordi Alba is pushing for a spot at left-back and could be given the nod over Jose Gaya, but the likes of Sergio Busquets and David de Gea should remain on the bench.

Georgia possible starting lineup:
Loria; Chabradze, Kashia, Dvali, Giorbelidze; Kankava, Aburjania; Lobzhanidze, Kvekveskiri, Kvaratskhelia; Kvilitaia

Spain possible starting lineup:
Simon; Llorente, Garcia, Ramos, Alba; Torres, Koke, Rodri, Canales, Olmo; Morata
