11/08/2016 18:15 BST – Brazil v Croatia – Betting Tips
The hosts are in third place but they face the team directly below them in the group. This makes the crucial game with respect to qualification for the knock-out round and you can expect both teams to be fired up for this clash.
Brazil defeated Spain by one point in their last game, winning 65-66, and Marcelo Huertas offered up 11 points. He may be in the NBA now but Huertas previously played for Barcelona, and you can imagine he enjoyed playing such a key role in defeating the Spanish side.
Dario Šarić is also in the NBA, playing with the 76ers and he was the key player for Croatia in their last game, grabbing 19 points in the loss to Argentina. The Croats will need to do better against South American opposition this time around.
