Match Preview

Though underdogs here, the hosts will more than likely give a good account of themselves after going unbeaten in four of the five competitive matches on home soil over the last calendar year (W3, D1, L1).
The hosts gained promotion from League D after they went unbeaten in the inaugural UEFA Nations League (UNL) campaign (W5, D1), giving them good momentum for the Euro 2020 qualifiers. It should be noted though, that Georgia failed to win in any match against higher-ranked opposition in their last UEFA qualification campaign, for the 2018 World Cup.
Visitors Switzerland take to the field unbeaten in 11 of their last 12 matches away from home against opposition ranked lower than themselves (W9, D2, L1). Notably, the Swiss have scored at least twice in two-thirds of those victories.
The first goal could be crucial here, as each of the visitors’ last four matches outside of Switzerland have been goalless at the break. Relevantly, including qualification playoffs, Switzerland’s last four UEFA zone qualifiers played away from home have been settled to nil either way (W3, L1).
Players to watch: Vako scored twice in Georgia’s recent UNL home victory over Andorra. The midfielder scored ten times in 33 matches for San Jose in the 2018 MLS campaign.
In the absence of top-scorer Haris Seferović, Switzerland will look to the likes of Xherdan Shaqiri, who provided two assists in their last match, and recently scored in a 6-0 rout of Iceland.
Stat attack: Four of the five defeats suffered by Georgia during their last UEFA zone qualifiers saw them lose after a level half-time score.
Only one team has scored in eight of Georgia’s last ten matches.
Four of the last five away goals scored by Switzerland in a UEFA zone qualification campaign have arrived in the 15 minutes immediately after half-time (46-60 mins).
