This game is going to be the decisive one in Group F as the places for the FIBA World Cup are at stake and all three teams are in contention for the two sports. In this game, North Macedonia will play at home against Slovakia. More about MCD vs SLO Dream 11 will be given below.
This is an important game for both Slovakia as they need to win this to keep their hopes of advancing ahead alive. Meanwhile, if North Macedonia loses by a margin of 28 points then they would be out and both Swiss men and Slovakia will go through. Switzerland would have their eyes on the game as they’d need North Macedonia to beat the Slovakians to secure their place. Slovakia has dropped two games so far and although they have shown the ability to come back in games, they are yet to put up a consistent showing at both ends. North Macedonia will have an edge in this game, considering that they are playing at home. Also, North Macedonia beat 69-47 last time they played just four days ago.

Adem Mekikj(last match stats)
Vladimir Brodziansky(last match stats)
1. Vladimir Brodziansky
Vladimir is a gutsy rebounder and a double-double threat. He has been the most productive player for the Slovakian team so far. Brodziansky is a candidate as the Super-Player in the Dream11 Fantasy basketball scenario.
2. Adem Mekikj
Adem has been one of the most consistent players in terms of offense during the whole tournament. He can bury jumpers and can notch up dribble drives. Mekikj can be chosen as a Pro-Player in the Dream 11 Fantasy scenario.
3. Mario Ihring
Ihring’s mantra is to keep shooting the ball and he can register some great open looks from the court.
4. Jacob Wiley
Jacob is a relentless rebounder whose domain is near the rim. He can also produce offense inside, while hoard defensive boards to help his team in two areas.
5. Simon Krajcovic
Krajcovic is an excellent perimeter defender but he can also be effective on the offensive end with his passing and scoring.
6. Bojan Krstevski
7. Andrej Magdevski
BENCH: Kritstijan Nikolav, Andrej Andonoski, Gorjan Markovski, Damjan Robev, Teodor Simic, Jacob Wiley, Viktor Efremovski.
