DOR vs GER Dream11 : The toughest group in the showpiece tournament resumes action today with Germany looking to get their first win of the world cup today
When the groups were crafted for the ongoing FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019, the one which stood tall amongst the rest of its counterparts was Group G. Lined up with France, Germany, Dominican Republic and Jordan, the plethora of worldclass sides in this group was undoubtable, a narrative bound to regale us in engrossing encounters.
And the group didn’t disappoint either on its opening day a couple of days back with us being immersed in two closely contested encounters. Both the clashes between France and Germany and Dominican Republic and Jordan were a testament to the stringent and staunch nature of this group which is set to simulate today as well.
Playing against Jordan, Dominican Republic ended up prevailing in an edge of the eat thriller by just 4 points to see the score swing in their favour. With the score a tight 77-76 with the closing stages of the fourth quarter being traversed past, Dominican Republic put in an incredible and resolute defensive display, killing out anything Jordan tried to fathom their way to score 3 unanswered points and take the match comfortably in the end.
It’s this same resilient which will take precedence over anything else for the side with the backline being of paramount important in this pertinent clash. They are up against a Germany side who despite being put down by France will be proud of making things jittery for a side which comes into the world cup with the second highest number of NBA star performers in its setup.
They were defeated 78-74 at the end of proceedings, a defeat born out of France’s exemplary ability to manage the match and shut it down successfully, rather than Germany’s own vulnerabilities. It’s a performance they will be looking to resonate today as well and put on a rousing performance against Dominican Republic as they look to garner their first points of the world cup.
Probable Playing 5
Dennis Schroder, Paul Zipser, Maximilin Kleber, Daniel Theis, Johannes Voigtmann
Gelvis Solano, Victor Liz, Luis Montero, Eulis Baez, Eloy Vargas
DOR vs GER Match Prediction
The margins for a win will be extremely fine today with both the sides being left drained in an encounter which is all set to be cliff-hanger. For us, Germany should win this one due to their ability to restrict an incredible French attacking squad to a mere 78 points, something which served them immensely along with their ability to contribute regular points in the attacking facet as well.

DOR vs GER Dream11 Point Guard
With a momentous 8 assists for his side in the previous clash, it is clear that we were always going to rope in Germany’s dictator of proceedings, Dennis Schroder for this clash. He was responsible for turning over play and transitioning it pristinely from attack to defence, a proposition which is set to see him register a slew of points today as well.
Elsewhere Dominican Republic’s point guard, Gelvis Solano was equally influential, putting in 7 assists to see us pick him up as well for this clash.
DOR vs GER Dream11 Shooting Guard
The 15 points in the last outing saw Victor Liz emerge as his side’s match winner against Jordan, coming up with a hoard of 3 and 2 pointers as he placed himself perfectly outside the circle to always be in open areas to be caught out by his side. With the open threes something he loves eyeing, setting up treys with luscious ease, he can easily end up being his side’s top scorer today as well.
DOR vs GER Dream11 Small Forward
Although he endured a horrid outing in the previous encounter before being eventually substituted, Paul Zipser should retain his side in Germany’s playing 5 for this encounter and we are going to get him in as well. Dominican Republic’s defence is nowhere near as staunch as France’s and Zipser should be able to put in baskets without seeing his shots and attempts to layup play be blocked.
We have also picked out Juan Miguel Suero from the opposition.
DOR vs GER Dream11 Power Forward
Germany’s Maximilian Kleber comes into our side due to his two way style of play. E will find himself make an impact in both the attacking defensive soirees, leaving Dominican Republic flummoxed with his ability to get on the end of passes and rebounds and put in well worked baskets inside the 15 metre range.
DOR vs GER Dream11 Centre
With 25 incredible points in the previous match, Johannes Voigtmann comes into our side instantly from Germany without any deliberations. He was a player to be reckoned with not with the ball but without it as well, swaying perfectly to rummage his way past luring defenders and knock the ball off the basket.
Someone who gave him perfect company was Daniel Theis with 8 rebounds and he comes in as well from the side.
Germany’s Johannes has been selected as our side’s captain for today.
