We finally have our first massive clash in the 18th edition of the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019 with France and Germany clashing heads in the closing encounter of day 2 of the first phase of the group stage encounters. With both the sides enjoying extremely fruitful qualifying campaigns, today’s clash will not only be a massive impetuous for the winners but also ensure that they get begin life in the World Cup in the strongest plausible style.
Where France won all six of their first round qualifying matches, Germany make an advent into the tournament with 15 wins from 18 clashes. For France, a side laden with NBA star performers, players who have plied their skill set at the biggest and most exuberant stage in the basketball arena, the expectations are massive. The side are expected to not only cruise past the group stages but launch a real bid for the glistening trophy as well, indulging in an attacking brand of basketball which sides have found difficult to quell.
Elsewhere, Germany saw their preparations for the World Cup be hindered with news of Moritz Wagner being left out of the 13 man squad for the World Cup. In what was a massive development from the side ahead of their imminent, the team management decided to do away with a player who was expected to be one of the main performers for his side today.
Probable Playing 5
Rudy Gobert, Amath M’Baye, Nicolas Batum, Evan Fournier, Frank Ntilikina
Daniel Theis, Maxi Kleber, Paul Zipser, Ismet Akpinar, Dannis Schroder
FRA vs GER Match Prediction
What has been a massive advantage for France is their attacking style of play, something which has seen them manoeuvre their way to pulsating wins and leave their opponents in complete disarray. They not only have players who can shoot from outside the circle but also unravel sides with their ability to move the ball around quickly and screen defenders flummoxed with their layoffs and rebound.
This should be a points galore encounter with France’s attacking might taking them to a win today.

FRA vs GER Dream11 Point Guard
Frank Ntilinka from France is our pick in this facet. The French point guard is quissential to the side’s cause, helping not only run the play from his own side of the court but also lapping up play from defence to attack, transitioning the ball sublimely down the court to provide assists.
The top assist provider for his side, he should emulate his astute showings today as well and come up with a rich bagful of points. We have opted for Dennis Schroder from Germany as well given the likelihood of him registering a good amount of assists in this clash.
FRA vs GER Dream11 Shooting Guard
An incredible shooter of the ball, Evan Fournier might just be France’s main player when it comes to delivering three pointers. He knows his range perfectly and takes up the perfect position outside of the circle to bring up pivotal points for his side and profligate open spaces in the staunchest and trickiest of defences.
FRA vs GER Dream11 Small Forward
Paul Lacombe is our choice for this segment from France. It’s his ability to keep traversing in the court and getting in important attacking and defensive positions which make him a good pick from Germany for this one.
FRA vs GER Dream11 Power Forward
Louis Lbeyrie from France comes into the power forward position as well. He’s going to hold a vital role for his side today, not only ensuring that their layoffs and bits if attacking plays are executed inside the box but guard and screen Germany’s attacking players successfully as well.
We have also opted for Johannes Thiemann from Germany.
FRA vs GER Dream11 Centre
Both the sides hold incredible options in this facet. While from a Dream 11 perspective, this is an area to not indulge in massively, both our opponents today have performers who involve themselves heavily in both attacking and defensive rebounds, ensuring that they are the first to get to the ball and keep possession for their side.
