Georgia v Czech Republic Prediction, Tips and Odds: Czechs to bounce back

Georgia and Czech Republic, two sides desperate for three points after making losing starts to their Euro 2024 campaigns, meet for the first time on Saturday.

Debutants Georgia showed glimpses of what they were capable of in a 3-1 loss to Turkey while the Czechs were minutes away from a priceless point against Group F heavyweights Portugal before Francisco Conceicao struck in injury time in a 2-1 win.

Georgia are 4/1 shots at the Volksparkstadion in Hamburg where former winners Czech Republic are a 3/4 chance.

Georgia v Czech Republic betting tips and predictions

Czech Republic & Over 2.5 Goals - 7/4

Expect plenty of goals in Hamburg for this Group F showdown and take Czech Republic to score the most of them

The Czechs, ranked 40 places higher than their opponents by FIFA, look a fair bet at 8/11 to land the spoils and take a huge step towards progressing.

But given the likelihood of an open game between two sides who need to win with no points on the board thus far, back the Czechs to win & Over 2.5 Goals at 7/4.

Ivan Hasek's Czechs will have to come out of their shells at the Volksparkstadion and they have proved they can.

Against Portugal, a match they were determined not to lose rather than go out to win, they carved out few chances with only 26 percent possession.

In their previous five games, however, all of which they won, they banged in 16 goals. Indeed, they have only failed to score in one of their last 13.

If they can get the ball to Euro 2020 hero Patrick Schick and either his Leverkusen colleague Adam Hlozek or Jan Kuchta, who has enjoyed a prolific season with Sparta Prague, then they should take their chances.

But Georgia can play their part. They may not be ranked as highly as the Czechs and are unquestionably punching above their weight this summer, but they will be positive.

They mustered 14 efforts against Turkey with Georges Mikautadze taking one of the four he unloaded. On the flip side, they allowed Turkey 22 efforts on goal and that show of generosity will get punished at this level.

Tomas Soucek Over 0.5 Shots on Target - 6/4

West Ham midfielder Tomas Soucek was handed the anchorman role against Portugal and his physical presence and top-flight experience came in useful as the Czechs had to counter wave after wave of attacks.

Against Georgia, however, Soucek will get more of a licence to link forward as well as be that customary threat that he is from set-plays.

Soucek was West Ham's joint third top scorer last season with seven goals in the Premier League plus two more in the Europa League.

Czech pressure will result in corners and free-kicks and the giant Soucek is such a handful in the box. He looks a smart play at 6/4 to have at least one shot on target.

Over 4.5 Czech Republic Corners - 4/6

The Czechs didn't win a single corner against Portugal - who won 13 - but that won't be the case against Georgia.

Ivan Hasek's side averaged 5.2 corners per game in qualifying and can chalk up at least five against Georgia.

The Georgians conceded five corners against Turkey in their 3-1 loss and can expect to be doing plenty of defending against their higher-ranked opponents.
