The Republic of Ireland will be hoping that they continue to enjoy the luck of the Irish as they gear up to face fourth-placed Georgia. Ireland are currently topping Group D with 11 points. The Irish have won three of their five Qualifiers. The draws have come against second and third-placed Denmark and Switzerland, who face off on Saturday evening. Mick McCarthy's men have conceded just two goals in their five qualifiers so far. McCarthy's solid back four have enforced three shutouts so far, while Middlesbrough goalkeeper Darren Randolph will be keen on keeping another clean sheet against Georgia on Saturday. Here is our take on both teams along with the Dream11 predicted line-up.
Mick McCarthy's men prevailed over Georgia when during they faced each other in Dublin in March. Ireland left-back Enda Stevens is suspended for the fixture. The Sheffield United fullback misses out, after picking up a booking in the draw against the Swiss. A loss for Georgia would mean that they are out of contention for the Euros. Fun fact, Georgia have failed to register a victory over the Irish in their last 11 encounters, with the Republic of Ireland winning 10 and drawing one. With first-choice left-back Enda Stevens suspended, Mick McCarthy will have to look towards Matt Doherty of Wolves or opt to field James McClean as a make-shift left-back. Georgia has no injuries in their squad, which means Vladimír Weiss has a full-strength squad at his disposal.
