Germany vs. Poland Prediction, Tips & Odds – September 18, 2022 17:15 CET
Germany and Poland will play a game for the third place and bronze medal at this 2022 Eurobasket.
German national team is the real hit of this championship so far. They just missed getting to the Eurobasket final. Germany maybe isn’t one of the best teams in the tournament by individual quality, but they are certainly one of those who play the most beautiful basketball, with a lot of energy on both sides of the court.
They were defeated by Spain in the semifinals in front of a full Mercedes-Benz Arena in Berlin. Schroder and company played a great first half, but couldn’t close the deal. Lorenzo Brown and Alberto Diaz were excellent in second half and Spain managed to turn the match around and advance to the final.
What adorns the game of Germany is great fight and aggressiveness. In addition, they have two excellent players on the court, such as Schroder and Wagner. Schroder plays as if in a trance. He enjoys every offense and causes problems for every defense, while Wagner shoots almost perfectly.
Against Poland, Germany is the favorite and they will try to break very strong Poles with their defense. Winning a medal can be a real guide for young players who are coming for something more that will follow in the future.
Poland national team led by Igor Milicic did a fantastic job at this championship. Even the bookmakers didn’t give much of a chance to pass the group stage, rather than fight for a medal. In group D, Poland were humiliated against Finland and Serbia, but they made it to the round of 16 from third place.
Ponitka is the absolute leader of this team who dominates on both sides of the floor. He played perhaps one of the best games in the Eurobasket history against Slovenia. In addition to 26 points, he had 16 rebounds and 10 assists. Also, he hit a three-pointer for the win, plus he stopped Luka Doncic in defense.
Poland are quite a solid team. In addition to the offensive rebounds, they play a lot on their center Balcerowski who is excellent at catching lob passes from his teammates.
The Polish team has nothing to lose here. They will go in relieved and try to make another surprise that would bring them a bronze medal. But it won’t be easy for them.

Germany vs Poland Prediction
After tough losses in the semifinals and quarterfinals, both teams need to gather strength and play the match for third place. Against France, Poland looked like a scattered orchestra, empty of energy, as if by winning against Slovenia they had already won the Eurobasket.
The quality and desire of Germany to win a medal at this Eurobasket are indisputable, and we think that they will win this match by at least 15 points.
