Scotland – Georgia
In group D, yet now it seems that the first place guaranteed for the national team of Germany, although the last match against Scotland were so persuasive (2: 1). For second place in the group, in my top favorite is the representation of Scotland.
Their last participation in big tournaments were at the European Championships in 1996-the year. They currently have a quality team and it would be a shame to miss the next European Championship in France. Gordan Strahan for this match will not be able to count on goalkeeper McGregor and in addition he has two other keeper in great form, so there will not be big problems.

Coach of Georgian for national team for this cycle qualifications omitted Khizanishvili which is one of key players in the Georgian team and also the rejuvenated band with some new players. This change is well reflected in the last match against Ireland, because the Georgians were equal rivals and a few mistakes were crucial for that match. I expect nothing less for this game, although the situation will be different, because this time, the Scots were the hosts and their team is at least one step further than the Irish.
Statistics and the quality of the course are on the side of Scotland but do not expect to be so easy to win Georgians. I think this is going to be a tough match in which the Scots will be dominated by the middle and attack Naismith could jade big problems for Georgia’s defense.
