As match day one of Euro 2024 ends, round two gets underway as Georgia meets the Czech Republic in Stuttgart on Saturday afternoon, and with that, Tom Winch has provided his Georgia vs Czech Republic prediction, team news, lineups and Euro 2024 preview.

Georgia’s clash with Turkey is the game of the tournament so far. Another entertaining affair is hopeful. It’s a must win for both.

Georgia vs Czech Republic Prediction 1: Both Sides Can Oblige

Euro 2024, Saturday, June 22nd, 14:00 (UK)

Georgia’s first-ever match at a European Championships was a terrific encounter. Willy Sagnol’s men faced Turkey in Dortmund; they lost 3-1 but put on a sublime show. The tournament newcomers created five big chances in their defeat and proved their worth throughout the contest.

Ivan Hasek and his side couldn’t believe their eyes as they opened the scoring against the run of play in their opening clash with Portugal. Lukas Provod slammed one in from outside the box just after the hour mark. The 2016 champions clawed back and snatched all three points in injury time.

That Georgian performance impressed me. It’s a side who has no fear. I expect another entertaining clash when the pair meet on Saturday afternoon.

BTTS – Yes, is available at an excellent price. The 1.91 price may not be as big come kick-off.

The Czech Republic must win here. They can’t afford to drop points against the lowest-rated nation in Group F. Georgia will fight. We could be in for a treat if they perform similarly to Tuesday afternoon.

  • Best Odds: 1.91

  • Stake: 4/10

Georgia vs Czech Republic Prediction 2: Mika’s Golden Touch

Georges Mikautadze might not get the credit he deserves within the Georgian side. Khvicha Kvaratskhelia is the superstar. He’s a national hero. However, the man from Metz has been in tremendous form in recent weeks. Mikautadze scored the equaliser against Turkey. I’m confident he can continue that scoring streak in Hamburg.

The 23-year-old found the back of the net 13 times across 20 matches for the French club in 23/24. The 0.67 goals per 90 was impressive for a side who faced relegation. Our man certainly knows where the back of the net is. He recorded 2.98 shots per 90, with 1.44 hitting the target in his spell with Metz.

Georgia are underdogs. It doesn’t faze them. They’ll take confidence from that performance against Turkey. Beating the Czech Republic is possible. Mikautadze will play a vital role in the attack.

It’s now 11 goals in as many games for Mika. He’s bang in form. The talented forward had four shots in the opening round and racked up a total of 0.69xG.

The price is appealing and one that has every chance of landing. Georgia will have support from home fans and neutrals after their recent display. One strike may be all we need for this selection to get over the line.

Georgia vs Czech Republic Prediction 3: Backing The Flag Kicks

The Czech Republic are the 1.70 favourite in this fixture. It’s a match they must win if they want to advance to the knockout stages. Hasek’s men were dominated statistically by Portugal. They had 27% of the ball, lost the shot count 19-5 and failed to earn a corner. Portugal racked up a whopping 13 on the night.

This game could be closer than the odds suggest. Both sides must achieve three points. Georgia faces Portugal in the final round, and the Czech Republic meets with Turkey. Those fixtures are tough. A positive result here could give them a chance. 

A bet in the corner market is up next. There were ten corners in Georgia’s match with Turkey. The game was free-flowing. A similar style here has the potential for a high corner count.

At some point, I expect a team to be behind. With either knowing defeat could be the end. This game could open up. There were a staggering 36 shots in Georgia’s game with Turkey. The Czech Republic should fancy their chances after witnessing the clash. They should be the side that takes the game to Sagnol’s men.

Over 9.0 Asian Corners is my third selection. This game is well up for grabs. Bring on the corners.

Georgia vs Czech Republic Euro 2024 Team News and Possible Lineups: Both Nations Ready For Action

There appear to be no fresh injury concerns from either camp. 

Georgia is likely to start with the same lineup that faced Turkey. They’ll be confident. The front two must play on top of their game. Mamardashvili made five saves against Turkey. He could be busy once again.

The Czech Republic may have more questions to ask. That performance against Portugal wasn’t inspiring. It’s unclear if there will be changes. A more positive approach is what we will see from the favourites.

Georgia possible starting lineup:
Mamardashvili; Kverkveliya, Kashia, Dvali, Kakabadze, Chakvetadze, Mekvabishvili, Kochorashvili, Tsitaishvili, Kvaratskhelia; Mikautadze

Czech Republic possible starting lineup:
Stanek; Holes, Hranac, Krejci, Coufal, Provod, Soucek, Sulc, Doudera, Kuchta; Schik
