TUR vs CZE Dream11 : Turkey and Czech Republic to battle it out in a must win encounter for either side as both look to prevail in their fight for a second place spot
When FIBA had decided to expand the Basket World Cup for its 18th edition and take the game to a truly global stage, one thing which the governing council had on its mind was to make the tournamnet as competitive as possible also. And they have succeed in their aspirations with this edition of the frontier tournamnet being one of the most stringent and closely competed one till date, seeing sides spare no expensive in moving above each other.
A narrative which is a testament to this scenario is today’s clash from the dramatic land of Group E with the encounter between Turkey and Czech Republic seeing the winner progress to the proceeding round. With both the sides locked on 3 points apiece, the clamour for a spot in the top 2 of Group E has reached it pinnacle today as either side prepares to clash heads for one last time in the first round of the group stage encounters.
While for Czech Republic today’s clash is an immense chance to make it to the next round, Turkey will be rueing their missed opportunity against USA to find themselves in this predicament. Putting on a terrific display in their tournamnet opener, Turkey pushed USA all the way, taking them to overtime before finally slipping and failing to hang on to be defeated by the sole point.
However after that 93-92 disappointment, the side went onto restablish their credentials as they trounced Japan 86-67, putting on a complete and well-rounded performance to reignite their chances of making it into the next round. Elsewhere their opponents Czech Republic were comprehensively defeated 88-67 by USA, a performance which exposed the glaring weaknesses in the side’s defence, a scenario which doesn’t put them in good stead ahead of today’s impending face off.

TUR vs CZE Match Prediction
Turkey have done more than enough in Group E to deserve a place in round 2 of the group stage. The side have stamped their credentials emphatically and profoundly, putting in two riveting attacking displays, one which we envisage they’ll emulate today as well to pummel a Czech Republic outfit struggling to keep things tight at the back.

TUR vs CZE Dream11 Point Guard
Czech Republic’s point guard, Tomas Satoransky is the first player we are bringing into our side from the team. Although he’s a point guard, his versatile game and willingness to up the ante and take the accountability to deliver an incisive performance saw him amass a staggering 17 points in the previous fixture along with the 5 assists.
It was a performance where he used his nous of capabilities to deliver a truly overall display, a stupendous performance to see Czech Republic put on a fight and punch above their eight, seeing him come into our side.
TUR vs CZE Dream11 Shooting Guard
With 4 assists, 4 rebounds and 22 points, Czech Republic’s Jaromir Bohacik has been selected by us as the point guard from the outfit. If his side are to have any chance of winning this, they’ll need their most effective shooter set himself up nicely outside the circle and position himself within range to shoot down triple and doubles with ease.
Turkey’s Melih Mahmutoglu has been impressive as well with the 18 points and 2 rebounds and he’s selected as well by us due to his ability to position himself at any point outside the circle and know what his range is as a player.
TUR vs CZE Dream11 Small Forward
After a meticulous and resounding showing against USA, small forward, Cedi Osman from Turkey is the first player to make an advent into our side. The last clash augured extremely well for him, a display where he left USA in angst with his astute display to not only shoot open treys from down the court but also latch onto rebounds and assure that his side got to the ball from open plays.
Lukas Palyza comes in as well for us, mainly due to his extremely cheap price tag at just 6 credits and surety to get some minutes in this clash as well.
TUR vs CZE Dream11 Power Forward
Undoubtedly Turkey’s best performer in the tournamnet till now, power forward Ersan Ilyasova has been indomitable and dauntless. His sublime display against USA was followed up with 19 points, 10 rebounds and 2 steals against Japan, a stupendous performance which left his opposition besmirched as he burst his way into their circle.
TUR vs CZE Dream11 Centre
Ondrej Balvin comes in from Czech Republic owing to his role not just in their attacking soirees but at the back as well. He’s going to be a pivotal figure for them and his side will be immensely relying on him to put in some well cued blocks and rescue vital turnovers of possession from them.
Ege Arar from Turkey completes our side for this clash.
TUR vs CZE Dream11 Star Player
There weren’t any deliberation for this pick with us making Ersan our star performer straightaway.
