Italy Team News

After excellent games and results at the qualifying tournament for the Olympics last summer as well as later in Tokyo, the Italians want to confirm their quality at the continental tournament.

They suffered a big loss a few days before the start of this competition. Danilo Gallinari, the best and one of the most experienced Italian players, injured his knee and will miss the entire Eurobasket. This weakened the frontcourt of the Italians, but this roster still has proven players.

Simone Fontecchio and Nicolo Melli will be the leaders of the Italian national team. Both played great in friendlies and in the Mundobasket qualifiers, so we believe Italy’s results will depend mostly on their mood. There are also Nico Mannion, Achille Polonara and Luigi Datome, so the Italians should finish the preliminary round in one of the first three places.

Estonia Team News

Estonians come to Eurobasket with modest ambitions. This will be their second appearance at the European Championship in the last 20 years. They finished 20th five years ago with one win in five games.

Estonia’s roster is made up of players unknown to the general basketball public, but there are several talented basketball players who can draw attention to themselves in this tournament. Center Mike Kotsar played great last season in Hamburg Towers, both in the Eurocup and the German championship, so he signed for Baskonia this summer. There is also talented playmaker Kerr Kriisa, who plays at the prestigious University of Arizona.

Apart from them, there is also the experienced Siim-Sander Vene, who was the most effective player of Estonia at the previous Eurobasket.

H2H

Italy and Estonia played against each other in the qualifiers for this Eurobasket. As guests, the Italians won 87-81, and the Estonians made a big surprise and won in Italy 105-104.

Italy vs. Estonia Prediction

Since Gianmarco Pozzecco is the coach of Italy, this national team plays very fast and dynamically. Their matches are generally very efficient, so we expect the same scenario against Estonia. Estonians are capable of adapting to a high tempo and we believe that this will not be a problem for them.

Probably because of his contact with nature, he is so calm, and often, his predictions have such cold-blooded reasoning.
