CZE vs AUS Dream11 : Czech Republic look to pull off yet other marvellous rescue when they take on Australia in the final quarter-final today.
Wednesday’s second encounter of the day sees us bring down the curtains on the quarter-finals of the FIBA Basket Ball World Cup 2019 with Group L’s table toppers squaring off against the second placed side from Group K. The fourth quarter-final will see Australia and Czech Republic battle it out for the last remaining spot in the semi-final as either side look to seal their berth in the coveted top 4 of the marquee tournamnet.
Both the sides make an advent into today’s encounter having endured completely different campaigns till now in the tournamnet. For Australia, it’s been a speckle free outing in the world cup up till now, one which sees them emerge into today’s clash having won all their encounters in both the group stage rounds. The most recent was an 82-76 triumph over Dominican Republic, a win as easy as they get with the lesser played players stepping upto the mantle for the side.
Elsewhere for Czech Republic, the journey has been anything but straightforward till here. Clubbed in the trickiest group of the second round with the team finding themselves amongst the company of USA, Greece and Brazil in Group K, Czech Republic’s progression into today’s encounter bespoke of the resolve and resilience of the side, something they’ll be looking to emanate today as well.
Although they ended up losing their final group stage encounter to Greece as they were put down 88-77, Czech Republic ensured that the margin for the defeat wasn’t a colossal one to move ahead of Greece. In Australia, they’ll be well aware that they are up against an extremely formidable opponent, one they can’t afford to slipup at any moment today.

CZE vs AUS Match Prediction
For all of Czech Republic’s resolve, will and valour, Australia will be the patrons of a win today. Their previous win against France perfectly epitomised the enterprising nature of this side, one which is adamant to scrape through to a win at any costs, relentless in their approach of piling on points in the attacking side of the court.
Their attack makes all the difference in this clash with the side clearly bestowed with a superior set of players, ones who’ll leave no stone unturned to guide the side to a win today.

CZE vs AUS Dream11 Point Guard
After his 30 points and 1 steal in the previous clash, Australia’s Patty Mills is chosen by us over here. The point guard put on a good performance against France and with Czech Republic coming with a similar paper thin defence, he should be allowed to put on the same showing today as well.
Shooting Guard for CZE vs AUS Dream11
The clash against France was the perfect display by Matthew Dellavedova to show his all round capabilities as a player for Australia. While his shooting capabilities are among one of the finest in the side, what stood tall amongst everything else was the way he traversed past France’s defences to set up layups and rebounds for his side to capitalise on.
A stellar performance of 25 points and the 1 steal see us choose Czech Republic’s Jaromir Bohacik as well in this segment. He was in sublime touch in the previous fixture and with his side bound to find their way inside the circle stifled today, he will need to find his range and send down open treys from outside the range for his side.
CZE vs AUS Dream11 Small Forward
We have opted for an entire trivalent of players in the small forward category with the segment holding immense value from either side We’ll begin with the picks from Czech Republic with us choosing the two players from the side over, getting in Vojtech Hruban and Pavel Pumprla. Both have put on some good displays for the side, intertwining their skill set in unison to keep shifting outside the circle and finding themselves in vacant position to send down threes.
Our selection from Australia in this department is of Joe Ingles.
Power Forward for CZE vs AUS Dream11
A cheap pick for us here but one who will certainly come on at some point for Australia and manage to get a respectable score for our Dream 11 side. Nic Kay has been involved in some capacity for the side in all the matches the side have partaken in, getting on the end of rebounds and moving his way articulately inside the circle to be on the end of passes and layups.
CZE vs AUS Dream11 Centre
Another relatively lesser priced pick completes our side for this encounter. In Jock Landale, we have opted for a player who won’t start for his side but will definitely come on at some point and given his two way role as a player and need screen play and guard his post, he’ll register a good amount of blocks and steals in this one.
Star Player for CZE vs AUS Dream11
Australia’s Ingles has been selected by us as our side’s captain for today.
