Great Britain

The British were defeated by Belgium as guests with a score of 57-72 in the previous round, and thus they practically had no chance of qualifying for the World Cup.

They have never been considered a basketball nation. This sport is not popular in their country, so the results are equal to that popularity.

Great Britain has an extremely modest roster. They occasionally pull off a surprise win in FIBA’s qualifying windows, but that mostly happens when opponents are drastically weakened and they’re playing without players from NBA and Euroleague teams.

Now, when every national team plays with the best players, the chances of the British winning are minimal. They don’t have top players, their best individual is Gabriel Olaseni, who has been playing in average Turkish clubs his entire career.

Latvia

Latvians played a brilliant game on Thursday. They outclassed Turkey 111-86 and played their best game in the last few years. Latvia will not participate in the upcoming Eurobasket, so the team is focused on these qualifying matches. They are currently in first place in the standings of this group with four wins and one loss, so they are very close to qualifying for the World Championship.

They showed that they are a very good team when their squad is complete. Kristaps Porzingis, the star of the Washington Wizards, scored 22 points, followed by Davis Bertans, an excellent shooter of the Dallas Mavericks, with 17. The Latvians scored 20 three-pointers from 35 attempts, which is an incredible success. Rihards Lomasz and Rolands Smits also played a very good match against the Turks and were of great help to the aforementioned NBA tandem.

H2H

Latvia and Great Britain last met at Eurobasket 2017. The national team from the Baltics won 97-92.

Great Britain vs. Latvia Prediction

As we mentioned, the Latvians are fully focused on these qualifiers and their main goal is to win this match. A positive result would bring them very close to qualifying for the World Cup. This Latvian roster is several levels above the British one, so we expect another efficient game from Porzingis and his teammates.
