Apart from unplanned loss against Estonia at the start of the World Cup qualifiers, Germany did a very good job. They are at 4-1 and if they enter the next stage of qualification with 5-1, they will make a huge step towards qualifying for the next World Cup.
On Thursday evening, Germany beat Estonia 88:57 in Tallinn and thus confirmed their good form. In this cycle, head coach Gordon Herbert has NBA players Dennis Schroder and Isaac Bonga in roster, which made the job much easier. There are also some players with Euroleague experience such as Johannes Voigtmann and Gavin Schilling and that quality is enough for them to be absolute favorites against Poland at home in Bremen.
Germany won last medal at big competition back in 2005 at the European Championships in Serbia and they hope that will change soon. They will perform at the Eurobasket in September with all the best players and they certainly hope for a good result.

In the last seven years, Poland became one of top 15 European national teams. They consistently had solid results at Eurobasket, and the highlight of everything was made in the 2019 World Cup when they were eliminated in quarterfinals by Spain. One of the most responsible guys for that success was former head coach Mike Taylor.
Poland decided to part ways with him last year and Igor Milicic was hired instead. That turned out to be a very bad move. Poland have played a terribly poor qualifiers so far and if they lose in Bremen against Germany, they will be eliminated and won’t advance to the next stage. Poland has a weaker H2H against Estonia and Israel and the only way for them to qualify for the next stage is to make a sensation in this game.
The good thing for this team is that they have some good players on the roster like A.J. Slaughter, Mateusz Ponitka and Michal Sokolowski, but for a big triumph it will be necessary that some players from bench play an extraordinary game.
Poland rallied late to keep their World Cup hopes alive with a thrilling OT win against Israel! 🇵🇱

These two teams played against each other in November last year in the same qualifiers and then Germany won 72:69 in Lublin. Both national teams performed with a very mixed roster then.
In this game, Germany won’t have a large number of players who could play on Eurobasket. Maodo Lo, Danilo Barthel, Andreas Obst, Johannes Thiemann, Moritz Wagner, Maxi Kleber and Daniel Thies are just some of the players that coach Herbert is missing. All players are available for Poland.
Germany vs. Poland Prediction
This is a win or go home game for Poland and in such circumstances there is no doubt that they will leave their hearts on the floor. In these qualifiers, Poland lost all games by single digits and it is expected that this trend won’t change. Germany has better players, but Poland is certainly more organized.
