Georgia v Wales Betting: Dragons to have work cut out in entertaining clash

Although all the talk is of how Coleman's side will score without Bale, Al Hain-Cole thinks they may struggle to keep out Weiss' men at the other end

Wales will be aiming to take a major step towards World Cup qualification when they travel to Tbilisi to take on Georgia on Friday.

Currently a point clear of third in Group D with just two games remaining, Chris Coleman's men are available at 19/20 (1.95) with dabblebet to head into their their final match against third-placed Ireland in control of their own destiny by coming out on top here.

However, the Crusaders have lost just one of their last six qualification matches, and are on offer at 3/1 (4.00) to put their rivals qualification chances in jeopardy with a first win of this campaign.

Five of the hosts' previous six matches have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 11/5 (3.20) on them earning a share of the spoils once again at the Boris Paichadze Dinamo Arena.

With so much at stake, Gareth Bale's withdrawal through injury has come as a crushing blow for a team boasting few standout match-winners.

However, the Dragons should take encouragement from the fact that the Real Madrid star has not been on the scoresheet in any of their last four fixtures - a run that has seen them claim eight points to put qualification back into their own hands.

Considering their opponents have not kept a single clean sheet in eight group games so far, the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Hal Robson-Kanu and rising star Ben Woodburn should feel confident of filling in for Bale in attack.

That being said, Coleman should be equally focused on getting things right at the back given that Vladimir Weiss' side have only failed to score once in their eight qualifiers, hitting the net in six consecutive competitive matches on home turf.

Having scored nine times in four previous encounters between the sides - hitting the net in every game - odds of 23/20 (2.15) could prove generous on Georgia joining Wales on the scoresheet once again here.
