How did they qualify:

Spain:

Sailed through Group A as they recorded six wins from as many games. The next round, or the final qualification round to be precise, was more or less the similar story as three-time Olympic Silver medalists won 10 times in 12 games, qualifying for the 2019 FIBA World Cup as leaders from Group I.


Tunisia:

Never were in trouble. The North African country qualified to the 2nd round with a 100% record and went on to win 10 times in 12 matches.


SPA vs TUN Dream11 team News:

Spain:

  • Head coach Sergio Scariolo left out both Jaime Fernandez and Ilimane Diop from his final roster for the 2019 FIBA World Cup.

Tunisia:

  • Mario Palma included Shooting guard Michael Roll, and Dallas Mavericks‘ centre Salah Mejri, to his roster for the World Cup.
  • The decision came as a surprise as the duo missed Tunisia’s World Cup African qualifiers due to different reasons. But the fact that they are in the team makes Tunisia’s roster a tad more optimistic.

Squad for the 2019 FIBA World Cup:

Spanish squad:

Marc Gasol, Xavi Rabaseda, Pau Ribas, Víctor Claver, Quino Colom, Sergio Llull, Ricky Rubio, Juancho Hernangómez, Javier Beirán, Rudy Fernández, Willy Hernangómez, Pierre Oriola


Tunisia Squad:

Omar Abada, Mohamed Abassi, Nizar Knioua, Salah Mejri, Makram Ben Romdhane, Ziyed Chennoufi, Mouhamed Hadidane, Omar Mouhli, Mourad El Mabrouk, Mokhtar Ghayaza, Michael Roll, Radhouane Slimane


Players to watch out for: (Captain options):

Marc Gasol: Pau Gasol’s younger brother finally won the NBA Championship last season with Toronto Raptors. The 34-year-old had an immense impact on Raptors after joining from Memphis Grizzlies in a mid-season transfer.

No doubt, he will be a star attraction at the 2019 FIBA World Cup.

Last season:

  • Points Per Game: 13.6
  • Rebounds Per Game: 7.9
  • Assists Per Game: 4.4

Ricky Rubio: Phoenix Suns’ point guard has a reputation of dominating the game both inside the paint and from beyond the arc.

Last season:

  • Points Per Game: 12.7
  • Rebounds Per Game: 3.6
  • Assists Per Game: 6.1

Juan Hernangómez: An upcoming star from Spain. Plies his trade with Denver Nuggets, and considering he is just 23, tells about the potential Nuggets sees in him. The 23-year-old is a good marker and is some presence inside the paint.

Last season:

  • Points Per Game: 5.8
  • Rebounds Per Game: 3.8
  • Assists Per Game: 1.8

Salah Mejri: Tunisia arrives in China with their biggest star in Salah Mejri. The 33-year-old is a good defender and will be hard for any player to win a head-to-head battle against him.


SPA vs TUN Dream11 Teams (Starting Lineup; Probables):

  • Spain: Marc Gasol, Juan Hernangomez, Victor Claver, Rudy Fernandez, Ricky Rubio
  • Tunisia: Salah Mejri, Makram Ben Romdhane, Ziyed Chennoufi, Michael Roll, Omar Adaba

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:

Spain will start the game as favourites.
