Wales haven’t beaten Georgia in four previous attempts but we’re backing them to break new ground in Friday’s vital World Cup qualifier in Tbilisi.

The Dragons go into this game in second place in Group D, four points behind Serbia but one ahead of the Republic of Ireland.

With the men in green expected to brush aside Moldova in Dublin, Wales will be keen to preserve their advantage before they host Ireland in the final round of fixtures.

That incentive to go for a win is enough to make 8/5 for the visitors to lead at half-time and full-time worth including in our Georgia vs Wales betting predictions.

A Look At Georgia’s Betting Odds

Georgia’s 1-1 draw with Wales in Cardiff 12 months ago was very much a game of two halves, with the Dragons dominating early on and going in front through Gareth Bale, only to then get sloppy.

As Wales sat back and tried to hold on to their lead, Tornike Okriashvili equalised in the 57th minute and Georgia squandered several late chances to prevail, with Valeri Kazaishvili hitting the bar.

However, Wales were without key midfielders Joe Allen and Aaron Ramsey on that occasion and clearly missed their steadying influence.

Georgia have yet to win in this group and lost at home to Austria and Serbia, but they have scored in all bar one of their eight games.

We’re taking 17/5 for an away win and both teams to score in our Georgia vs Wales betting tips.

A Look At Wales’ Betting Odds

Chris Coleman was part of the Wales side thrashed 5-0 in Georgia during the Euro 96 qualifying campaign, so he will be eyeing belated revenge as a manager.

Unbeaten in this pool, the Dragons have given themselves every chance of securing a trip to Russia next summer with back-to-back wins over Austria and Moldova.

Losing Bale to injury is a major blow, but Coleman will be buoyed by the return to top form of Arsenal midfielder Ramsey.

The 26-year-old has provided two assists in his last four Premier League games and is overdue a goal, having not netted since the Gunners’ opening win over Leicester.

Looking at the Georgia vs Wales odds, 5/2 for Ramsey to score at anytime will do for us.
