ANG vs PHI Dream11 : Clamour for an opening win grows for Angola and Philippines with the two sides failing to four defeats in between them.
Although they were part of a stringent Group D which also featured Serbia and Italy, the way Angola and Philippines have been put down is bound to massively disappoint the sides. The lack of a fight has been telling from both the sides who have ended up losing the two encounters apiece, seeing today’s encounter being the final time they can conjure up a group stage win.
Although they have been delegated to the Classification Round with Serbia and Italy having consolidated their spots into the ensuing stage, both Philippines and Angola, today’s clash is far from an inconsequential one. It’s one last time to resume some semblance to their campaign and move into the battle for a spot in the 17-32 rankings with momentum in their artillery, something which is bound to buoy these two outfits.
Also what will see these two be quietly confident of pulling off their opening win would be each other’s identity. Both are level match opponents, sides who have fared similarly in the world cup with Angola being trounced 105-59 by Serbia while Philippines were decimated 102-68 by Italy in their previous clash. With paper thin defences being played around with, today’s clash is an opportunity to not only put on the board their opening win but also rectify their glaring weaknesses to give their ardent supporters something to cheer about.
Probable Playing 5

ANG vs PHI Basketball Match Prediction
While their previous two defeats were a mockery of their sides, both our opponents today will immerse us in a closely contested clash. Expect this to be a humdinger, a match where both the sides are able to express themselves freely for once and carry out their original gameplan without fear of the opposition.
What serves Philippines better is their all round attacking unit, one which should see them pull off a win for the first time in the 18th edition of the world cup.

ANG vs PHI Dream11 Point Guard
Although Philippines’ Kiefer Ravena won’t be starting this one, the point guard will make an appearance as a substitute and his 8 credit price tag justifies his worth owing to that narrative. He’ll register a good amount of assists today given Angola’s defence, making him the first pick for our side in this facet.
ANG vs PHI Dream11 Shooting Guard
If you can register 15 points against a staunch Serbia defence and serenade your way to 2 assists and 1 rebound along with it, your quality as a player has to be special With that performance in his kitty, Angola’s point guard and most influential player, Carlos Morais is an instant pick for us in this facet, being one of the main players for his side in this clash.
Jaymar Perez ended up registering 15 points and three assists against tally, seeing the point guard from Philippines come into our side as well for this clash owing to his ability to layup the ball and turnover play from defence to attack.
ANG vs PHI Dream11 Small Forward
Troy Rosario is our only pick in this segment with us looking to free up credits to invest in elsewhere. There’s a real dearth of options and the substitute at just 6.5 credits does no damage to our side. He’s also bound to get in some triples in this clash given Angola’s inability to guard their pole and becomes a relatively good option to indulge in.
ANG vs PHI Dream11 Power Forward
Much like the last segment, Eduardo Mingas’ pick is justified due to the same narrative. Also, Angola will be looking to give the lesser played players some time out in their final group stage encounter, seeing Mingas being involved heavily for his side in this clash.
ANG vs PHI Dream11 Centre
Or most anticipated and awaited facet, this is the department where the real gold lies in from either side. Both Philippines and Angola will heavily rely on their centres to put in quissential displays in both attack and defence, helping guide their team to their first ever consummate success in the ongoing edition of the marquee world cup.
With 9 points, 6 rebounds and the 2 steals we have June mar Fajardo become the first player to come into our side from Philippines with Andray Blatche being indulged in as well. The two steals and 10 rebounds for him were a testament to his ability as a two way player, someone who is going to be involved in both the attacking and defensive sojourns for his side.
Yanick Moreira from Angola wraps up our side for this clash.
We have chosen centre Blatche as our star player for today’s match.
