Our prediction for this Nations League match:
Armenia play host to Georgia at Republican Stadium in the third round of the Nations League. The Armenians quickly bounced back from a 2-1 loss to North Macedonia, with the team beating Estonia 2-0 at home ground in their second group game. Despite the war going on in Armenia, the Nations League game will take place in Yerevan. The good news for the hosts is that Roma ace Henrikh Mkhitaryan is back to contention after missing the September games.
The Georgians, on the other hand, kicked off their Nations League campaign with a 1-0 win over Estonia, with the team sharing the spoils with North Macedonia in their second group match. Armenia and Georgia seem to be evenly matched at the moment, and, taking everything into account, we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw in this one.

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.
