Euro 2024

Euro 2024 Fantasy team previews: Georgia

Next in our Euro 2024 Fantasy team previews, we take a look at Georgia in Group F.

Despite finishing fourth in a five-team qualifying pool, some success in the latest Nations League allowed them to try the play-off route.

From there, a dramatic penalty shoot-out win over Greece secured the former Soviet republic their first-ever spot in a major international tournament. But a tricky group awaits them.

In these country-by-country guides, we’ll be looking at the best players from each nation, taking a stab at predicted line-ups, reviewing the road to Germany and more.

To do this, we’ll be calling on the help of correspondents from each nation. Here, we enlist the services of X user @GeorgianFooty.

And new to these team previews is a Premium Members section detailing the official Opta data from Euro 2024 qualification. This data has recently arrived in our Members Area, so sign up today to gain access to the all-important stats you need for this summer’s Euro Fantasy game.

THE ROAD TO QUALIFICATION

PosTeamPWDLGFGADiffPts

3Norway83231412+211
4Georgia82241218-68
5Cyprus8008328-250
  • Play-off results: Georgia 2-0 Luxembourg, Georgia 0-0 Greece (won 4-2 on penalties)

These debutants will certainly begin Euro 2024 as underdogs. The sole nation to qualify with a negative goal difference, none of the others accumulated as few as eight points or conceded more goals (18). Georgia allowed the sixth-most shots (156) of all 53 competitors, at a rate worse than the likes of Andorra, Malta and Kosovo. Amongst all that, a heavy 7-1 home loss to Spain wasn’t ideal.

Not that Willy Sagnol’s side will care. Having previously topped Nations League C Group 4, they got to skip all March friendlies and instead battle for one of the final available spots.

Without superstar Khvicha Kvaratskhelia (€7.0m) due to suspension, a Budu Zivzivadze (€5.0m) brace overcame Luxembourg in controversial circumstances. By keeping another clean sheet five days later against Greece, Nika Kvekveskiri‘s (€4.5m) winning spot kick caused scenes of delirium in Tbilisi.

Of course, it means that only Cyprus and Luxembourg were defeated in open play.

      Schmid didn’t make the final squad did he?

        Right. But he's 14% owned for some reason - woohoo!

    Better option?

    A. Lukaku/DiMarco/Mendes

    B. Havertz/TAA/Cancelo

    1. FPL Blow-In
      • 11 Years
      16 days, 20 hours ago

      A but Mendes may not be nailed. Havertz is likely a 60min man. Trent not nailed.

    2. F4L
      • 9 Years

      B

    3. The Mentaculus

      Not sure about Trent, but probably B

      Looks solid

      1. FPL Blow-In
        • 11 Years
        16 days, 20 hours ago

        Thanks. Frimpong is a wait and see really, be interesting to see how they line up Monday

        1. Disco Stu
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          16 days, 20 hours ago

          If Frimpong plays up front like he did yesterday, he's a steal. Only concerns are whether Faes is really nailed, and I'd worry about Bellingham playing a deeper role in the England squad than he does for Real

          1. FPL Blow-In
            • 11 Years
            16 days, 19 hours ago

            Thanks! Agree on Frimpong. Bellingham is going to play the same role for England as the number 10 in my opinion. Faes is at risk from Debast but I think he is first choice to begin with. Will likely WC MD2 so just need these players one week.

        2. Men in green tights
          • 5 Years
          16 days, 20 hours ago

          Worth the gamble in my opinion especially in this format.

          1. FPL Blow-In
            • 11 Years
            16 days, 19 hours ago

            Yeah, Monday will tell us more. I can free up .5 to get VVD instead if needs be. Had both of them at one point but see Poland scoring.

            1. Men in green tights
              • 5 Years
              16 days, 19 hours ago

              To be honest it could be a competition of very few clean sheets , hence why we are going for wingbacks or potential oop players and all of us having 3 at the back . Seems to me following the same pattern in all the top leagues to much goal threat from other teams .
              Good luck too you

              1. FPL Blow-In
                • 11 Years
                16 days, 19 hours ago

                Good luck to you too

      Don't know much about Yildiz but looks an interesting punt

      1. FPL Blow-In
        • 11 Years
        16 days, 18 hours ago

        Yeah, considering the injury to Ünal I think he should start. Akturkoglu might play up front though. Have to monitor final friendly

        1. The Mentaculus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 2 Years
          16 days, 17 hours ago

          I'm still trying to figure who they'll start up top actually. Looks like Yilmaz is also a candidate

          1. Men in green tights
            • 5 Years
            16 days, 17 hours ago

            I think he is there main striker when available having looked at past fixtures also Yildiz can play down the left as well as striker . But it looks if they play with a main striker , will interesting last friendly.

  5. Apollo Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    16 days, 19 hours ago

    Thoughts?

    Verbruggen, Lunin
    Cancelo, Frimpong, Dimarco, Mittelstadt, Faes
    Fernandes, Foden, Wirtz, Rodri, Jorginho
    Havertz, Kane, Mbappe

    1. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      16 days, 19 hours ago

      Very solid. I don't quite get the popularity of Jorginho though tbh

      1. Lord Mayor's Croupier
        • 10 Years
        16 days, 19 hours ago

        He frees up a lot of money and he plays. Maybe on pens too.

      2. FPL Blow-In
        • 11 Years
        16 days, 19 hours ago

        Penalties and ball recoveries at 5m is all

        1. The Mentaculus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 2 Years
          16 days, 19 hours ago

          Fair enough. Might give you a tough decision (in terms of subs) if turns out 4-5pts with a CS & recoveries though. Personally I think I'd rather have someone like that playing later in the MD & more risky / high ceiling punt earlier

          1. Men in green tights
            • 5 Years
            16 days, 18 hours ago

            Guess you are going a couple of Turkey players I’m definitely am especially against Georgia too good of a fixture not too then WC match day 2

            1. The Mentaculus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • Has Moderation Rights
              • 2 Years
              16 days, 18 hours ago

              Yeah I'll have one I think, probably Güler if he looks like starting. Ideally would have liked their game to be earlier in the MD but still think that's the game for a cheap punt

              1. FPL Blow-In
                • 11 Years
                16 days, 18 hours ago

                Güler is a good shout and I think he will start. Just not sure if it’s in the midfield 2 or as a 10

                1. Men in green tights
                  • 5 Years
                  16 days, 18 hours ago

                  Was looking at him , found this article very interesting for choices so it’s swayed me a bit off him at the moment .Especially if I go for their striker frees a lot of money up to go bigger in midfield .

        2. Apollo Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          16 days, 9 hours ago

          That's it.
