Spain were held 1-1 by Greece in their Group B opener on Thursday and were heading for another shock result at the Boris Paichadze Dinamo Arena.
Khvicha Kvaratskhelia gave Georgia the lead just before the interval, but Ferran Torres equalised 11 minutes into the second period and half-time substitute Olmo scored a long-range goal in added time.
Georgia ended the game with 10 men after Levan Shengelia was sent off for a challenge on Pedri as Spain avoided an embarrassing result on their travels.
Spain are now top on four points while Sweden are second on three with a game in hand which is away to Kosovo on Sunday night. The Kosovans have yet to kick off their campaign, Greece have one point from one game while Georgia have lost their first two matches.
