    How did they qualify:


    Despite opening the campaign with a dominating 101-62 win over Tunisia in Game-1, Spain left a lot to be desired from their next two games as both Puerto Rico and Iran ran them unexpectedly close.

    Sergio Scariolo’s men can’t be lacklustre now as the opponents’ profile increase in this round.


    Italy’s only loss at the group stage came against Serbia in the 3rd and the final game in Group D.

    While the Italians didn’t face any trouble in seeing off Angola and Philippines as Romeo Sacchetti’s men finished 2nd in the group.

    ESP vs ITA Dream11 team News:


    • No injury concerns for the World No-2 Basketball team in the world.
    • Sergio Scariolo could allow Pierre Oriola and Willy Hernangomez more time on the court.


    • Italy have every player available from its 12-man World Cup roster.
    • Giampaolo Ricci, Brian Sacchetti and Nicolo Melli are not with the squad.
    • Paul Biligha started the game but Alessandro Gentile soon took over from the bench and ended up with a significant impact. That could be the case here, with Gentile clocking more minutes.
    • If the Italians are to progress far in the tournament, the bench has to deliver. So far, the likes of Awudu Abass and Amedeo Della Valle have been far too inconsistent.
