In the Eurobasket round of 16, Germany did what they needed to do against Montenegro and they came one step away from their goal, which is winning a medal at this Eurobasket. Given that knockout stage is played in Berlin, they will have huge support from the stands in this game as well.
At this tournament, Germany is filled in all positions. Dennis Schroder is the absolute team leader, Franz Wagner is able to score 20 points against every opponent, Daniel Theis is one of the best centers in Eurobasket… Second unit is made of players who play important roles in their clubs in the Euroleague like Maodo Lo, Niels Giffey and Johannes Thiemann. Head coach is Gordon Herbert who has a lot of experience and all the ingredients for a big result are there.
In the group stage, Germany had strong performances against France, Slovenia and Lithuania and they will not be impressed by Greece. They will enter this game ready to win and in order to succeed in that they will need the best match at Eurobasket so far.
With Serbia elimination by Italy, Greece has become perhaps the main favorite to win gold medal at this Eurobasket. They are the only undefeated team so far with 6-0.
Giannis Antetokounmpo shows why he was a two-time NBA MVP. Although there was a dilemma whether the “Greek Freak” could adapt to FIBA rules, it no longer exists. The Milwaukee Bucks superstar is playing exceptionally well, averaging 29 points and has the strongest candidacy to be the MVP of this tournament. Greece roster includes several experienced Euroleague players such as Nick Calathes, Kostas Sloukas and Kostas Papanikolaou, plus Dimitris Itoudis is on the bench. He won everything a coach can win in Europe.
In terms of quality, Greece is better than Germany. However, they will have an extremely difficult task ahead of them. They will have more than 15,000 hostile fans in the stands who will do everything to make it difficult for them, and shooting from a distance is definitely the biggest problem of this Greece selection.
Counting all head-to-head games, Greece is on a nine-game winning streak against Germany. In official matches, they defeated them in the last four clashes. Germany last triumphed back in 2001 in the Eurobasket round of 16.
Germany came to this Eurobasket without several important players including Maxi Kleber, Danilo Barthel, Isaiah Hartenstein, Moritz Wagner and Isaac Bonga. Greece has all the players available.
Germany vs. Greece Prediction
When all the circumstances are taken into account, we should expect a close game that could be decided in the very end, and maybe even after overtime. Handicap on the home team in such a situation is more than a solid value.
