Our prediction for this Euro 2024 match:
Following a routine 3-1 win over Cyprus, Spain will be aiming to clinch top position in Group A when they take on Georgia on Sunday evening. La Roja are eyeing their seventh win of the process and we are positive that they will stick to their attacking style of play. Real Sociedad ace Mikel Oyarzabal limped off with injury in the last group game, with Atletico Madrid winger Rodrigo Riquelme likely to step up. His teammate Alvaro Morata should be recalled to the starting XI as well.
The Georgians, on the other hand, missed out on a spot at the Euro 2024 finals, but given their attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on over 2.5 goals. As always, a man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Napoli superstar Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, who scored a brace in a 2-2 draw with Scotland on Thursday. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team ahead of the trip to Valladolid.
Highlighted Player (Daniel Carvajal):
Dani Carvajal is a Spanish footballer who is a product of Real Madrid’s youth academy. After making 68 appearances for Castilla, he moved to Bayer Leverkusen in 2012 and he was producing outstanding performances with the Bundesliga outfit in the 2012/2013 season.
In the summer of 2013 he returned to Real Madrid as los Blancos exercised their buy-back option and the pacey full back has been playing for the Spanish giants ever since. Carvajal won two Champions League trophies with Real Madrid (2013/2014, 2015/2016), but he has yet to win the La Liga trophy with the capital club. Dani has five caps for Spain U21 and he played his fifth game for the senior team against Macedonia in the Euro 2016 qualifiers.
He made his Spain debut on 4 September, 2014 in a 1-0 loss France in Paris. Speaking of his individual honours, he was named in the Champions League team of the season (2013/2014). Dani Carvajal has a contract with Real Madrid which expires on 30 June, 2020.
Highlighted Team (Georgia):
Georgia are yet another former Soviet republic who have been competing as an independent country since 1990. The Georgians had their international debut on May 27, 1990, with the team sharing the spoils with Lithuania in Tbilisi.
Georgia have been struggling in the qualifiers for both FIFA World Cup and the European Championship ever since they played their first qualifying game and they have yet to book their place at the finals of the major tournaments. The Georgian national football team recorded their biggest win on March 30, 1997, with the team hammering Armenia in front of home fans, but they were demolished by Denmark (1-6) eight years later and that is considered the team’s biggest loss.
The Likes of Kakha Kaladze and Shota Arveladze are considered Georgia’s most famous players. Kakha Kaladze played for Georgia from 1996 to 2011, scoring one goal in 83 appearances for the national team. The left-footed defender won two Champions League titles with Serie A giants AC Milan (2003, 2007).
