ARG vs ESP Dream11 : Argentina and Spain draw the curtains down on the exhibition tournamnet with the two sides at loggerheads for a shot at the prestigious trophy today
One of the most unpredictable and topsy-turvy world cups till date finally gets ready to wrap up its business for this year today. Sunday’s second encounter from the dramatic and intriguing land of the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019 brings our way a ravishing faceoff between Argentina and Spain as we get ready to welcome the much awaited and highly anticipated summit clash with open arms.
When the marquee tournamnet had made a foray into the fray of the world of basketball, this clash was far from one which was anticipated to be the line-up for the final. Whilst both the sides are extremely good outfits, the identity of some of the 32 sides partaking in the tournamnet was way too momentous and colossal, making these two’s presence in this match even more impressive.
And with both these sides entering today’s clash unscathed with the two having yet to lose a match, today’s math promises to be a competitive and closely contested affair, one where the barest of margins will come into play to determine which side emerges on the winning side. Spain made it to the final after seeing off a strong Australia side in an incredible high scoring encounter, one which went right down to its culminating stages.
In the end, Spain just had enough in them to peel off a 95-88 win to fight it out with Argentina who had things relatively easy against an abysmal French side. The 80-66 win hardly perturbed them, seeing them craft their way to what was a comfortable win at the end of the day, a performance which bodes well for them against a tougher Spain side.

ARG vs ESP Match Prediction
Given how both these side’s have played till now in the league, determining a winner was a tricky proposition for us. This is going to be a match where there’s going to be little to separate the two sides with both levelly matches and having endured similar results in the league till now.
What favours Spain in this is their ability to fathom up points from all positions on the court with the side laden with players who can both construct from the centre and send the ball from down the court. It should see them just about scamper through to a win today and win the world cup with it.

ARG vs ESP Dream11 Point Guard
While Spain’s Ricky Rubio has kept providing points and assists, he got 4 steals as well the last time around with his 7 rebounds and 11 assists. This is a crucial position for the side as they look to keep transitioning the ball from defence to attack seamlessly, ensuring that they turnover possession impeccably to keep the points flowing for them.
From Argentina while we wanted to get in Facundo into our side, his hefty price tag made him an adverse choice, seeing us go in with Luca Vildoza instead. He’s put in some good displays across the course of the last couple of encounters, ones which has seen him get an extended role for his side, something which should be seen today as well.
ARG vs ESP Dream11 Shooting Guard
We are picking up Spain’s Rudy Fernandez over here due to the number of attempts he’ll have at sending down triples today. Argentina showed against France that they are extremely effective in shutting down the ball movement, killing off layups inside the circle which will see Spain revert to sending down opens treys today.
ARG vs ESP Dream11 Small Forward
Having picked up Spain’s shooter in the previous segment, we have gone in with Argentina’s option over here, getting in Gabriel deck for this match. At just 10 credits, he doesn’t our side no harm, helping free up funds to invest in elsewhere and with Spain vulnerable in blocking their post, he should find his threes sent down from range find the basket.
ARG vs ESP Dream11 Power Forward
The most heavily packed segment of our side, the point guard facet see us get in three picks for this imminent clash. With 28 assists and 13 rebounds, Luis Scola from Argentina was always going to be an instant pick for us with the player crucial to not only converting everything setup by the side, moving with impeccable grace inside the circle but ensuring that possession stays with his side as well by being on rebounds.
We have also selected Tayavek Gallizzi from the side while from Spain we are getting in Victor Claver for this match.
ARG vs ESP Dream11 Centre
33 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 blocks were figures which meant we were always going to get in Spain’s March Gasol. A two way player, he is not only asked to score but also guard the side’s post, making this position one of the most critical for his side today if they are to lift the world cup.
