SPA vs TUN Dream11 : Spain look to get their FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019 campaign underway with a comprehensive win today as they eye an authoritative start in the tournament
Touted as one of the firm favourites for the glistening FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019 trophy, Spain know that they’ll need to begin their soiree in pulsating fashion if they are to reassert the high stature accorded to them. The side will be opening their tournament today in the second clash to be contested in group C today with Tunisia clashing heads against them.
For Spain, the qualification proceeds to the marquee tournament epitomised just how sublime and well-rounded a side they are. With six wins from six to top Group A, the outfit registered four wins from six clashes in the proceeding round to sit with a pretty 10 wins, a script which saw them entire the land of the World Cup as Group I leaders.
And packed with some staunch names from the NBA arena, the side will be looking to rake in a steady source of points starting today when they face off against Tunisia. Although the African side had an equally successful outing in the qualifiers, competition in the showpiece tournament is going to be massively elevated and in Spain the side will be up against a side way superior than them.
Spain should come hot out of the blocks and get off to a piquant start, one which sees their attacking party come to the fore with the point guard and power forward using their affinity to shoot from distance and get in on the rebound to pile in the baskets for the side.
Probable Playing 5
Marc Gasol, Juan Hernangomez, Victor Claver, Rudy Fernandez, Ricky Rubio
Salah Mejri, Makram Ben Romdhane, Ziyed Chennoufi, Michael Roll, Omar Adaba
SPA vs TUN Match Prediction
We just can’t pit any side winning this clash apart from Spain. The unit have some specialist names in the attacking facet of their side, players who tasted consummate success in the bygone NBA season and will bring that repertoire of skill set to the World Cup as well.
It’s the attacking set of players that sets the side apart from Tunisia today who are going to find it a travesty to curtail Spain, a predicament which should see them lose this one.

SPA vs TUN Dream11 Point Guard
The Phoenix Suns’ point guard averaged 13 points per game in the 2018-19 NBA campaign along with getting 6 assists per match as well, seeing us get in Ricky Rubio from Spain for this. The quick transition of the ball from the back of the court to the front is down to him and the side’s small forward, a role the two have fulfilled sublimely.
SPA vs TUN Dream11 Shooting Guard
The shooting guard position see us pick out the two players with the first pick being of Rudy Fernandez from Spain. With Tunisia having just Salah Mejri as a proper defensive player, Fernandez should see several spaces open up for himself, allowing him a clear sight at the basket from outside the circle.
From the opposition we have opted for substitute Ziyed Chennoufi in a bid to open up funds elsewhere and with him bound to play this one, making him an excellent pick at 6.5 credits.
SPA vs TUN Dream11 Small Forward
With no player expected to be named in the starting 5 of their side, w decided to roll out Spain’s
Xavier Rabaseda just to free up money to invest in other facets. He might get an appearance as a substitute as well if his side are cruising to a win, making him a relatively fine pick.
SPA vs TUN Dream11 Power Forward
The Denver Nuggets power forward ended up registering 6 points and 4 assists per game in the last edition of the NBA, a season where he unearthed his skill set and showcased what he’s capable of when making an advent up the court for his side. Juan Hernangomez’s ability to play the ball with the centre and layoff the ball for his counterparts should see him come up with good points today.
From Tunisia we have picked out Makran Ben Romdhane over here.
SPA vs TUN Dream11 Centre
Both the centres are vital to their side’s cause of tasting consummate success for this clash. Both are undoubtedly the side’s best players and also their talismen, seeing us select Marc Gasol from Spain first given the incredible success he enjoyed in NBA.
A part of the Raptors title winning season, the centre played the perfect role of a centre, not only keeping the ball out of his basket by being the first to latch onto defensive rebound but also scoring baskets at will by being the first to get to attacking rebounds as well. From Tunisia we have gone ahead with Salah Mejri, the side’s finest defender, someone who’ll be tasked with curtailing Spain today.
Juan has been chosen as our side’s star performer for the final encounter of day 1.
