Georgia have been in fine form in their recent matches. In their last six games, they have managed four wins to go with two draws. During the June Nation League fixtures, Georgia took full control of group C4 by winning three out of the four games. This included a crucial 3-0 victory in the reverse fixture against North Macedonia. Now with only two matchdays to go, Georgia need just one point to secure a promotion to league B.
North Macedonia have been highly inconsistent in their recent games. After surprisingly eliminating Italy from the World Cup qualifiers, North Macedonia would have fancied their chances of topping their Nations League group and earning a promotion. However, now they find themselves in a must win situation to at least keep group C4 open heading into the last round of fixtures.
Georgia will operate at full strength for the fixture with the exception of defender, Jemal Tabidze who pulled out of the squad due to injury. As for North Macedonia, Stefan Ristovski, Valon Ethemi and Dejan Iliev are the three players who withdrew from the squad owing to fitness issues.
Georgia possible line-up: Loria, Khocholava, Kvirkvelia, Kashia, Kakabadze, Kvekveskiri, Aburjania, Azarovi, Kvaratskhelia, Davitashvili, Mikautadze
