Spain opened their World Cup campaign in a dominating way, as they had a 30-point win against Ivory Coast. That match ended in a score of 94-64, proving why they are the defending champions in the FIBA World Cup. Coming into this match, Spain have one goal in mind, and that is to bring them closer to defend their title. During their match against Ivory Coast, it was Herenangomez brothers and Usman Garuba who led the team. The Hernangomez brothers had 33 points combined on that match, while Garuba chipped in 12 points. However, now that they are coming against Brazil, these three’s job will be tougher. Fortunately though, Spain is a very capable team, and they definitely have the attacks under the hoop. This will be a test for Spain’s confidence before their more important games.

Unfortunately, Spain has several outs for this game due to injuries. Alex Abrines suffered an injury during their match against Ivory Coast, making him questionable for this game.

Brazil on the other hand was able to demonstrate their strength against Iran, which is a very important one. Every win in the World Cup is very important, especially their opener, as it will be the dictator of their momentum. It was a dominating 100-59 win for Brazil that made them sit at the top of their group standings. Bruno Caboclo showed another good performance on that match, following his performance in the pre-season. He had 16 points, and seven rebounds, helping Brazil to have that much-needed win. Aside from him, there are other players who are capable of making wonders for the Brazilian squad. This match is an important one for Brazil, as they are now looking to seal the top spot of their group.

It is just unfortunate for Brazil that they lost Raulzinho Neto, who is one of their key players. He had to be carried by his teammates on their first match, due to a knee issue.
