Both Teams To Score

Reason for tip

Both teams have scored in the Czech Republic’s last five contests and four of Georgia’s last six matches. These teams had two of the tournament’s highest expected goals against in their opening games and look destined to concede again here.

Draw 1-1

Reason for tip

Czech Republic have conceded in six of their last seven internationals, but only once was it more than a single goal and that strike came in the 92nd minute from Portugal. Georgia have shipped multiple goals in three of their last six games, but one of those was away to Spain and another against Turkey, who have more quality in attacking areas than the Czechs. Georgia defended Turkey’s crosses well enough on Tuesday and can restrict their opponents’ main weapon if they do that again here.

  • Both teams have scored in Czech Republic’s last five contests
  • Both teams had two of the tournament’s highest expected goals against in their opening games

A clash of desperate defences 

Despite playing their part in entertaining games on Tuesday, Georgia and Czech Republic head to Hamburg with nothing to show and an increased desperation for points from Saturday’s Group F meeting.

Georgia gave it their all against Turkey in Dortmund and spurned three great chances to level the match at 2-2 before conceding a breakaway third goal when their goalkeeper was waved forward at a stoppage-time corner.

They look capable of springing a surprise if things fall their way in the box and coach Willy Sagnol appears to have a better handle on what his best line-up is than Ivan Hasek does for the Czech Republic.

Hasek’s front two looked cumbersome

The Czechs looked frightened to death of opening the game up against Portugal and were painful to watch when they managed to wrestle possession away from Roberto Martinez’s men.

The combination of two relatively immobile forwards in Patrick Schick and Jan Kuchta stifled their counter-attack opportunities until Hasek hauled them both off.

Things improved as soon as quicker and more willing substitutes came on and Hasek’s side might have taken a point in Leipzig had Portugal’s changes not perked them up as well.

Goals expected against Georgia  

This game features two of the teams that allowed their opponents to carve out plenty of high-quality chances in their group openers.

Portugal’s expected goals (xG) of 1.78 was the seventh-highest recorded by the 24 teams in action while no team bettered Turkey’s xG of 2.73 against Georgia.

Those stats suggest each team’s defence will give up opportunities in Hamburg, where both teams to score looks the standout play.

Both teams have scored in four of Georgia’s last six matches and also in Czech Republic’s last five contests.

Sagnol’s side can secure a point

Although Lukas Provod scored the Czechs’ goal with a lovely first-time strike from distance, the move began with two decent crosses into the box and that is usually how they get on the board.

Georgia defended their box from Turkey’s aerial balls pretty well and could make things pretty difficult for Hasek’s side to get on top.

Although they are favoured to take all three points, the Czechs might have to settle for a 1-1 draw unless they can vary their play as much as Turkey did.
