Bet Live on Euro 2016 Qualifiers: Scotland vs. GeorgiaPublished October 11, 2014 by Amir G
Georgia is the clear underdog as it meets Scotland at Glasgow's Hamden Park today for the Euro 2016 qualifiers (5pm UK time).
This weekend of qualifiers for Euro 2016 culminates today with a very interesting meeting between Scotland and Georgia at Hamden Park (5pm UK time). Having drawn with Germany in Group D, both these teams had a rough start with Scotland losing their opener 2-1 to Germany and Georgia losing 1-2 against Ireland.
While they lost in Germany, Scotland has shown promising performance in their game against the new World champions in Dortmund. The loss in Germany can be excused if Scotland starts mounting up wins now – the team could do with automatic qualification if they finish second behind Germany and for that to happen, they must win today's game and take the full three points.
Before Germany, Scotland went on a 6 game unbeaten run, managing to keep clean sheets against Poland and the US. With a good home record, it's hard to see the Scots losing this one today; out of their last 15 home matches, Scotland lost only three against Wales, Belgium and Spain.
From any angle one look as it, Georgia is a clear underdog for today's match. Not considered to be one of the world's best teams, Georgia had a combined away record of 0-3-10 in their last three qualifying campaigns. Georgia and Scotland met before in the qualifiers for Euro 2008, where the Georgians were beaten 2 to 1. Taking into account Scotland's impressive performance against Germany despite the loss, it would be very surprising to see Georgia taking three points today.
