Republic of North Macedonia
The Northern Macedonian national team is currently experiencing great times. They recently managed to qualify for a major international tournament for the first time in their history, playing at Euro 2020. After that, they failed to qualify for the 2022 World Cup, but they sensationally beat Italy 1:0 in the semi-finals of the knockout stages, although they then lost to Portugal 0:2. The Red-Yellows have been performing very decently in the current tournament as well. They drew 1:1 away with Bulgaria in the first round and then beat the visiting team of Gibraltar 2:0.
The Georgian team has never competed in a major international tournament, but they are gradually getting closer to meeting that challenge. They have already produced some sensational results in qualifying for the 2022 World Cup, although it did not lead to eventual success. They will now try to qualify for Euro 2024, and the UEFA Nations League is a great option to get an extra chance. The Crusaders have performed admirably in this tournament. They beat Gibraltar 4:0 on home soil in the first leg and then crushed Bulgaria 5:2 away.
Expert Betting Tips
North Macedonia and Georgia approach the encounter in good form. Willi Sagnol's men have crushed their opponents in the previous two games, so they are likely to pose a massive threat to the Macedonians. As a result, we have to bet on a Georgian win at around 3.3.
Georgia is currently the highest-scoring team in the UEFA Nations League. The Crusaders have scored nine goals (4.50 average per game) in their two encounters, but the Georgians' defensive performance has not been without problems either, having conceded twice already. The national team of Northern Macedonia is more modest in terms of scoring, but we can expect a goal feast in the coming match. With this in mind, we would expect a total over 2.5 goals at odds of around 2.38.
Khvicha Kvaratskhelia will be playing for Napoli in Serie A from the new season, but for now, he is preparing to make his debut in the Italian league. He spent the second half of the current championship for Dinamo Batumi. He scored eight goals and two assistants' points for 11 games. The 21-year-old footballer plays for the Georgian national team no less effective as he scored and assisted two goals in the current UEFA Nations League matches. The young player is in excellent condition, so a bet on Khvicha Kvaratskhelia's goal is worth looking at odds of about 5.50.
