Angola is coming into this match confidently, following their result in their second group match against Italy. In fact, Angola’s campaign in the World Cup is slightly better than what is expected of them. They opened their match against Italy, but are unfortunate that it ended with a loss. However, although it ended with a loss, they showed that they are not an easy team, managing to be close to Italy. During their second match against the Philippines, Angola showed resilience, despite trailing early. However, due to their determination, Angola was able to come back, making the right adjustment. Despite having a crowd disadvantage, Angola did not lose heart, and play the way they need to win. That 10-point victory is more than enough for them to stand a chance for the next round of the contest.

However, Angola remain to be without Yanick Moreira. Other than him, there is no fresh injury or fitness concerns for this team.

Dominican Republic remains to be on the top of their group standings, as they remain to be unbeaten in the contest. During their opener, Dominican Republic struggled against the Philippines, as their opponent had a tight defense against them. However, during the final quarter of that match, since Jordan Clarkson was fouled out, Dominican Republic took advantage. On their second game, it was also a struggle for them, as Italy trailed as early as the first quarter. Fortunately, Dominican Republic was able to make some adjustments and pull off a comeback, and earn the win. From all the teams in their groups, Dominican Republic has a huge chance to enter the second round. With Karly-Anthony Towns on their squad, Dominican Republic are ready to achieve greater heights in the World Cup.

It is just unfortunate that Dominican Republic lost Al Horford, and Chris Duarte, as both were not able to participate since the start. Nonetheless, they have several players who are capable of stepping up for their team.
