Bosnia and Herzegovina
Bosnia and Herzegovina made the biggest surprise of this year’s Eurobasket on Sunday. They defeated reigning champion Slovenia and thus took a big step to the round of 16. This team will probably need one more win, and they will get the first of two opportunities against France.
Dzanan Musa and John Roberson played exceptionally well against Slovenia, while Jusuf Nurkic also made an important contribution. Mentioned three players are team leaders, and everything in offense depends on them. Miralem Halilovic, Amar Gegic, Adin Vrabac, and Edin Atic have important roles as well, but for a good result it is necessary that Musa, Nurkic and Roberson play at their maximum.
Although they achieved perhaps the biggest win in the country’s history against Slovenia, head coach Adis Beciragic pointed out that they must immediately shift their focus to France because the work is not finished. Win against Slovenia won’t have too much significance if they don’t advance to the round of 16.
France came to this Eurobasket as one of the main favorites for the gold medal. However, already in the first round against Germany, they suffered a defeat that surprised everyone. With a win against Lithuania, they did a crucial job in terms of advancing to the next stage, but now they want to finish group B in the highest possible position.
Rudy Gobert is on paper the first name and national team leader, but the Minnesota Timberwolves superstar has not shined so far. Evan Fournier and Thomas Huertel are in charge of the backcourt, while power forwards Guerschon Yabusele and Terry Tarpey play an important role as well. France has a lot of room for improvement and a better performance and that can surely make Vincent Collet happy because, despite the weaker form in the first three games, they achieved two wins.
Theoretically, France can still be first, but it probably won’t happen because they lost against Germany by 13 points at the start of the tournament. It is only important for them to avoid the fourth position because that would certainly mean a clash with Spain already in the round of 16.
France leads 6:1 in H2H, but Bosnia and Herzegovina won the last game played two weeks ago in Sarajevo. After an overtime, score was 96:90 for the “Dragons” in the World Cup qualifiers.
Bosnia and Herzegovina has all players available for this Eurobasket. France arrived to Germany without Nicolas Batum and Nando De Colo.
Bosnia and Herzegovina vs. France Prediction
France wants to take revenge on Bosnia and Herzegovina for the defeat in Sarajevo and they pointed that out right after that game. Now when Dzanan Musa and his teammates have defeated Slovenia and Hungary, it is certain that France will be even more focused and motivated to achieve a win.
