SEN vs AUS Dream11 : Australia look to seal progression from Group H today when they clash heads against bottom placed Senegal
As we keep building up towards the conclusion of the group stage encounters in the first phase of the ongoing edition of the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019, Tuesday’s eight encounters begin with a lopsided clash in Group H. The mighty Australia side will be facing off against the worst side in the group with the team taking on Senegal in a bid of assuring themselves of a ticket in the second phase of the group stage fixtures.
Involved in one of the highest scoring clashes till now in the marquee tournament, Australia ended up persevering in a sensational fixture against Canada. In what was an attacking extradonaire match, an edge of the seat points thriller, Australia managed to win the fourth quarter to amass two pivotal points in a tricky group. The 108-92 win saw them not only occupy second place but also reassert their credentials for the glistening trophy in a runaway win against a daunting opponent.
Elsewhere for Senegal, the completion of the world cup was too much to hand, something out of their ambit unlike the African qualifiers they won to make it this far. The side were decimated, trounced and chastened in a 101-47 defeat to Lithuania, seeing the side being embarrassed by a deficit of 54 points with their gaping holes in defence leaving them flummoxed on the day.

SEN vs AUS Match Prediction
Picking out a winner from this clash was as straightforward a prospective as they get. There is only one winner from this clash with no disrespect to Senegal with Australia being way the mightier and more well-versed outfit in this clash. Not only will they win this clash but could end up making tings extremely silly for Senegal who’ll find it difficult to match upto the identity of their opponents today.

SEN vs AUS Dream11 Point Guard
Patty Mills from Australia comes into our side as the first player with the point guard putting o na good performance in the least match. He put in 15 points, one which included 3 three pointers and three 2 pointers and wit Australia set to dominate the attacking play today, expect him to get good points again.
From Senegal we have opted for Xane D’Almeida with him being asserted of a place in the side’s playing 5, something which makes him excellent value at just 9 credits. Even if he isn’t able to impress with his shooting today, his ability to work up assists will see him rope him decent points for this clash.
SEN vs AUS Dream11 Shooting Guard
Australia’s best shooter and top scorer in the previous clash with a momentous 25 points, a performance which included 5 assists, 5 rebounds and the 1 steal as well as he put in a complete performance, shooting guard Matthew Dellavedova was an undoutable pick for us. He’s in terrific form with his late surge seeing his side overturn a deficit from the first quarter against Canada and pick up a win in their tournament opener.
We are also choosing Pape Diop from Senegal over here after he came off as a substitute to pick up 6 points and the 1 rebound for his side.
SEN vs AUS Dream11 Small Forward
His 13 points in the previous outing with the two three pointers and two 2 pointers see us pick up small forward Joe Ingles from Australia. His ability to keep interchanging position outside the circle sees him be in positions to articulately put in the open threes for his side along with screening defenders perfectly to open up areas for the rest of his side.
SEN vs AUS Dream11 Power Forward
We have gone in with Senegal’s Ibrahima Fall Faye here due to his ability to get rebounds in both the attacking and defensive positions. He will be tasked to be a heavy part of his side’s defence today, guarding not only the post but Australia’s players as well, a proposition which could see him end up as his side’s top scorer today.
SEN vs AUS Dream11 Centre
Brining in the duo of Jock Landale and Andrew Bogut was only fair given the way they intertwined their skill set in the previous clash. Both will massively enjoy their time today, position themselves right beneath the basket to layup plays for their small and power forwards along with getting on the ends of rebounds and picks off the basket.
Shooting guard Matthew has been chosen as our side’s captain for today.
