Spain secured first place and placement in the next stage by winning over Brazil 96:78 in the second round. “La Roja” performed well against South America, reaching a double-digit plus and returning to minus five. The team will play the last duel in the group without difficulty, with the goal of resting leading players and giving chances to those who have not had much minutes so far. The Spanish national team knows that every break is essential in the tournament system, and this match will serve them for rest and additional practice. Since Spain are eager to inch closer to defend their title in the World Cup, expect them to come out here and take an early lead. Fortunately, they have never shown any signs of weakness in the contest.

No injury concerns for Spain coming into this match, which they are fortunate of. Ricky Rubio already retired from the national team due to their personal reasons.

Iran’s team, Ivory Coast, was eliminated in the second round of the FIBA World Cup after a dramatic finish and a technical foul by coach Hakan Demir. The Asian team’s poor defense and zone defense led to a 71-69 point loss against Ivory Coast, which could have been higher. On that match, it was close to winning that match, but they were not able to pull off an unexpected comeback. Iran’s goal was to win one match and qualify for the Olympics, but their next opponent is one of the biggest favorites in the tournament, and they will end the tournament without a single victory. The Asian team’s surprise factor will not be enough to pass against Spain. Due to their results, they are now out of contention in the World Cup.

Just like their opponent, Iran is also healthy coming into this match, despite Mohammad Jamshidi being omitted from their list.
