How both the teams fared in the first stage?
Placed in Group A, alongside Poland, Ivory Coast and the hosts China, Venezuela failed to match the expectations from their display in the first round.
A 69-80 loss in the game-1 against Poland was unexpected, but the South American team bucked up for the next two games, beating Ivory Coast 87-71 and China 72-59 to secure a berth in the 2nd round.
However, the world no-20 team didn’t have the best of the start as Argentina toppled them 87-67 to put more pressure on Néstor García’s men ahead of their next assignment against Russia.
Russian opened their World Cup campaign with two wins in as many games against Nigeria and South Korea respectively.
The 3rd and the final game in Group B set-up a clash between Argentina and Russi for the top-spot.
It was a close game and could have gone either way, but the South American team saw off the challenge from their European counterpart despite Andrey Zubkov and Co- threatening a comeback in the fourth quarter.
Like Venezuela, Russia come into this game on the back of a loss in the first game in the 2nd round.
