How both the teams fared in the first two group games?
Completely dominated the Philippines in Game-1, winning the game 108-62 in one of the most one-sided games in the FIBA World Cup.
It was more or less the similar story for the European nation as they toppled Angola 92-61 in Game-2.
The World No-4 team hardly broke into a sweat in the first two games at the Group Stage.
The tournament-favourite tag is well justified by Aleksandar Đorđević's men. Not only they won, but did so by a huge margin of +105 points, the most by any team so far in the 2019 FIBA World Cup.
ITA vs SER Dream11 team News:
Squad for the FIBA World Cup 2019:
Paul Biligha, Luca Vitali, Danilo Gallinari, Daniel Hackett, Amedeo Della Valle, Marco Belinelli, Alessandro Gentile, Ariel Filloy, Jeff Brooks, Amedeo Tessitori, Awudu Abass, and Luigi Datome
Stefan Bircevic, Nikola Milutinov, Vasilije Micic, Marko Guduric, Stefan Jovic, Boban Marjanovic, Nikola Jokic, Marko Simonovic, Bogdan Bogdanovic, Nemanja Bjelica, Vladimir Lucic, Miroslav Raduljica
Players to watch out for: (Captain options):
Nikola Jokic: Serbia's best player. Đorđević is using him very cautiously. And this could remain the case until the knockout stages begin.
That said, the 24-year-old will surely make an impact for whatever minutes he remains on the court.
Danilo Gallinari: Had a pretty solid NBA season, clocking around 20 points per game. The 31-year-old Italian will be a threat and Jokic is well aware of that fact. Expect a huge battle here.
Marco Belinelli: Scored 17 points in the last game, including five rebounds. San Antonio Spurs' superstar had a solid end to the season as he averaged around 15 points per game.
Serbia's big man will be hard to get over for whoever from Angola comes against him.
Nemanja Bjelica: Returned to the first-team action against the Philippines in the last game, and ended up with 20 points in less than 17 minutes. He makes Serbia even more formidable.
