CAN vs SEN Dream11 : Canada look to propel themselves into the top 2 when they take on a languishing Senegal outfit in Group H today
The final day of the first round of the group stage matches in the FIBA Basketball world Cup 2019 is upon us and it comes bearing with it colossal consequences. While we have had some groups wrapped up, Group H comes bearing with it a completely different scenario, thrown wide open for all the four sides in the marquee tournamnet at the moment.
For Canada in particular, their final group stage fixture is a momentous opportunity to revive their campaign and make one last surge for a spot in the ensuing round of the tournamnet. Despite having tasted defeated in both their previous encounters, with a defeat giving one point as well, Canada know their aspirations of making it into round 2 of the group stage stand well and alive when they take on Senegal today.
What will especially give them the much needed impetuous of pulling off a massive win is the fact that Australia and Lithuania, the top 2 sides at the moment in Group H will be facing off against each other today as well, meaning one side is going to finish of four points. And with Canada up against Senegal, they know they can pile on the points in this lopsided clash and will propel themselves above the loser from the other clash in the group.
Elsewhere, while the ramifications for Canada are massive, Senegal have little to incentivise today’s clash. They have been the worst side in the group by some distance, being trounced by all their opponents and would be looking to treat today’s contest as one final chance to make a name for themselves before moving onto the Classification Round.
