Georgia shockingly lost to Bulgaria and thus drastically complicated their situation. They no longer depend solely on themselves but in order to advance, it is necessary to beat Montenegro in the last round of group A.
If Bulgaria defeats Belgium, Georgia theoretically won’t be able to make it to the round of 16. If the Belgians triumph, then Georgia will advance with a win against Montenegro. Georgia offense seems quite disorganized without clearly divided roles. Goga Bitadze and Giorgi Shermadini bring great quality in frontcourt, but guards are more than modest. Thad McFadden has complete freedom and that is probably not the smartest thing for head coach Ilias Zouros.
Georgia won’t calculate anything. They will play to win in any case with more than 10,000 passionate fans behind them in Tbilisi. They will leave their heart and soul on the floor and whether that will be enough to win remains to be seen.
Montenegro has left a more than solid impression at Eurobasket so far. They beat Belgium and Bulgaria and were very close to surprise Turkey in the first round. As expected, they suffered a convincing defeat against Spain, which is the best team in Group A.
Considering the many surprising results in this group, Montenegro still didn’t secure their place to the round of 16. For such a thing, they will need to beat Georgia and that won’t be an easy task at all. Bojan Dubljevic and Marko Simonovic are playing very well in this tournament, while Kendrick Perry and Vladimir Mihailovic have the biggest impact in backcourt. One of the weakest links is head coach Bosko Radovic, who does not have much experience in these types of games and that could be the biggest mismatch in this clash.
Montenegro must achieve a triumph and they will do everything they can to play their best match of the tournament so far. Key for them will be to reduce turnovers, because if they are not bad in that segment, they will have an advantage over Georgia which makes a lot of unforced errors.
These two teams played against each other twice. It happened both times in 2016 and Montenegro won both games.
Georgia cannot count on their most important player (Toko Shengelia) who is injured and not playing at this tournament. Montenegro best player Nikola Vucevic is also not playing, as well as Nikola Ivanovic.
Georgia vs. Montenegro Prediction
Although Montenegro has shown better form during this tournament, Georgia is good enough to play a close game that could be decided in one of the last possessions. If this is the case, +5.5 handicap will be covered.
