Updated on: Aug 4, 2021 4:41 pm IST
Earlier, USA women beat the Opals in a blowout fashion and surely the men will like to replicate the performance of their compatriots. In this knockout game, the winner will head to the Semi-Finals and will be just two games away from claiming the Gold medal. More about USA vs AUS Dream 11 will be given below.
USA vs AUS Dream 11 Prediction
The USA has been the Kings of the game for a long time and has been unbeatable. They have won the last three Olympics Golds and have taken care of the business consistently. The Australians have been unbeaten so far but now they will be in a real tussle against a tough team. The USA has an incredible lineup full of both young and experienced players and the same goes for the Aussies. The lack of slashing Small Forwards can hurt the Aussies and that can play a decisive role. The USA doesn’t have effective depth at the big man position and that is an area which the Australians can exploit. This match-up can be a heated defensive battle as both teams are powerhouses who will give their all to win the game but the USA does have a substantial edge over the Australian men.
