17/08/2016 18:30 BST – Spain v France – Betting Tips
This is a game between two teams that know each other very well. Spain and France are not just neighbours in Europe, they are competitively matched teams in the basketball arena. Both of these teams can look back on recent triumphs against their opponent, so the two teams will be looking forward to this game with optimism.
Spain started very poorly in the competition and there was genuine concern over whether they would progress to the knock out round. In the end, they joined the melee of Group B teams with a 3-2 record and this has left them to face the French in this round. Pau Gasol has been the key player for Spain this tournament and if he is able to deliver the points in this game, Spain will be looking at a semi-final date with destiny.
France ended up tucked in behind the USA and Australia, which is probably a fair summation of where they are in international basketball. The loss to Nigeria was a big shock and it shows that when the French team is off the boil, they can be in big trouble. That defeat may serve as a wake-up call to avoid that sort of score line again but it does indicate that there are weaknesses in the French line-up. One player the French will be looking towards for a big showing is Nando De Colo. If De Colo delivers a good outing, the French will have every chance of progressing in this tournament.
