TUN vs JPN Dream11 : Hosts Japan face off against bottom placed Tunisia in an instrumental match for the side
For Japan, the FIVB Basketball World Cup was not only a chance to regale the country in an engrossing brand of basketball featuring the most sublime of sides in the fraternity but a chance to showcase their tenacity as a side as well. And they have managed to show a glimpse of that in the early exchanges of the world cup, something the side will be looking to further build on come today’s impending clash against Tunisia.
Why this world cup holds more importance also for Japan is not only due to the Olympics the country is slated to hold in 2020 but also after the debacle of the women’s team in the bygone world cup. The women’s side were woeful and horrid in their world cup, failing to make the most of a boisterous and vociferous crowd with lacklustre and agonising displays, one the men’s side will be looking to make up for.
Currently in 7th place with the one win and one defeat, for Japan, today’s clash is a must win one if they are to have series aspirations of challenging for a spot in the annuls of the league. They began their tournamnet in exquisite fashion with a 3-0 win over Italy before falling to a 3-1 defeat to Poland, a display which exposed the weaknesses in their defensive setup, a peril they’ll be looking to make up for come today.
And in Tunisia, the side know they have an opponent against whom they have pull off a win with conviction. Currently in last place with the two straight defeats, Tunisia have been left in dismay owing to their appalling and atrocious performances, showings which have seen them slump to 3-0 defeat against Poland proceeded by a 3-1 loss against Argentina.

TUN vs JPN Dream11 Libero
With 4 running sets and the 14 still sets, Tunisia’s Saddem Hmissi has played out a bigger role than just a libero for his side. While he’s kept picking up serves and receiving shots in a bid to defend adequately for his side, he’s acted as a setter as well for his side, seeing his dual toned play make him a pick for us here.
TUN vs JPN Dream11 Setter
Khaled Ben Slimine has had a dejecting tournamnet up till now, becoming one of the main reasons for his side’s abysmal, appalling and lopsided displays in display but we pick him up due to two reasons. While we wanted to go in with an all Japanese line-up ensuring this facet, the setter could get some points in this one with Japan not the most blessed side when it comes to the defensive facet either.
TUN vs JPN Dream11 Blocker
Where Tunisia have failed to impress defensively,, Japan showed they have their ample weaknesses in their defeat to Argentina. In what was a dejecting performance by them in that clash, the side will be mulling a better performance as they look to make amends for that performance.
This sees us get in Taishi Onodera from the home side, someone whose 5 blocks and 16 rebounds make him a safe pair of hands, a player pivotal to Japan’s defensive gameplan in the tournamnet.
TUN vs JPN Dream11 Attackers
Having slipped in 6 sets with just the one in reply, Tunisia have been the worst side when it comes to putting up blocks and halting attacking soirees. The side have been quick to put down, allowing teams to get past them to runaway wins, a predicament Japan’s attacking duo will be looking to capitalise on come today.
We begin with their highest scorer, Yuki Ishikawa, someone who has registering a staggering 29 spikes and 15 attack points, pairing him alongside Tatsuya Fukazawa for this encounter.
TUN vs JPN Dream11 Universal
Undoubtedly Japan’s most versatile and imperious performer, in universal Yuji Nishida, the side have a performer who has encapsulated his skill set to become a key figure in both sides of the court for his outfit. Also being the side’s main server has seen him pick up 16 serve points alone, which paired with his spikes and digs make him an instant pick for us today.
Yuji is our side’s captain while Ishikawa is our vice-captain for the prevelant clash.
