Below you can find Scott's reasoning behind each part of the bet.

Both Teams To Score

Turkey are out of form coming into this game. Their last win came in November when they earned a shock 3-2 win over Germany. Since then, They have gone six matches without a win and have conceded an average of two goals per game.

Montella started his reign as Turkey boss with three victories. Over the course of his eight matches in charge, they are scoring an average of 1.38 goals and conceding 1.5. Turkey are the favourites here but defensive frailties could be a problem against Georgia. 

Georgia have a menacing forward pairing of Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and Georges Mikautadze. They starred in the recent 3-1 win over Montenegro and come into this game in great form.

Georgia have scored an average of 2.35 goals per game in their last 10 matches. Even without the 8-0 win over Thailand in that period, they are still averaging 1.56 goals. While they are deservedly the underdogs for this one, I expect them to have their moments and get on the scoresheet. 

Khvicha Kvaratskhelia Over 0.5 Shots On Target

Khvicha Kvaratskhelia’s future will be the subject of much speculation in the coming weeks with his father claiming he is unhappy with his son working under four coaches in one season at Napoli. 

The Georgian was instrumental in Napoli’s first Serie A victory since the days of Diego Maradona but the last season hasn’t gone according to plan. Khvicha continues to perform but Napoli slumped to a 10th-place finish.

Despite Napoli’s struggles, Kvaratskhelia managed to score 11 league goals last season. His direct dribbling and willingness to be adventurous in possession make him a huge asset. 

He also isn’t afraid to shoot. Khvicha averaged 3.83 shots per 90 minutes played last season. This meant he ranked in the top 2% for shots when compared with all other attacking midfielders and wingers across Europe’s top five leagues.

Kvaratskhelia averaged 1.5 shots on target per 90 minutes in Serie A last season so backing him to have one in his country’s first-ever game at the European Championships looks a good bet. 

Over 4.5 Cards

Turkey’s qualifying matches for this tournament saw more cards on average than any other side with 6.62 per game. There have been five cards or more in their last six competitive matches so we should see plenty dished out here.

Georgia’s qualifying matches also saw plenty of cards with an average of 5.4. That’s well above the average of 4.39 cards handed out across the whole of qualifying.

Facundo Tello is the referee for this one. He is the only non-European referee selected for this tournament and he usually officiates in the Argentine top flight. 

He has handed out an average of 5.5 cards per game in the last 10 matches he has officiated. Tello dished out six cards in the only international match he has refereed since the World Cup.
