VEN vs ARG Dream11 : Group I closes its business for Day 1 as toppers Argentina look to reaffirm their supremacy in the tournament
What has impressed from Argentina is not just the fact that the team ending up winning three out of their three group stage matches in the first around but the clinical way in which those wins were constructed. Obliterating their opponents from sight as they made a mockery of them, the side ended up not only sitting in the echelons of Group B but also entering the second round placed at the top of their group.
The side’s tenacity was manifested in their final outing in Group B with the side decimating Korea 95-69, a defeat which perfectly encapsulated the mighty nature of this Argentina side. Now paired in a group which constitutes of Poland, Venezuela and Russia, the side will be confident of staying in first position and emanating the same resounding displays which have seen them emerge as strong contenders for the prestigious title.
Elsewhere, Venezuela make an entry into today’s clash having treated their first defeat in the world cup as they were put down by group toppers Poland in a chastening 80-69 result. Although the side are bound to be dejected with their performance, for them the result couldn’t have come at a better time with the team being made aware of the glaring weaknesses prevelant in their side, gaps they’;; look to work on ahead of today’s tricky and arduous encounter.

VEN vs ARG Dream11 Point Guard
A major reason for Argentina’s incredible and maverick success has been down to their two point guards. Facundo Campazzo and Nicolas Laprovittola have perfectly intertwined their skill set, utilised by their side perfectly to form a daunting and indomitable duo which has not only run the play but cantered its way forward as well.
With 17 points in the side’s previous outing, Nicolas had numbers unfamiliar with a point guard, shooting his way to a bagful of points with incredible ease. Elsewhere Campazzo was the perfect accomplice to him, setting up 6 assists to craft a slew of chances for his side to capitalise on and open up spaces in between the opponent’s backline.
VEN vs ARG Dream11 Shooting Guard
With 15 points against Poland, shooting guard Pedro Chourio showed that he’s unperturbed by the trickiest of defences, laying himself up nicely to convert three pointers from down the court and putting in vital points for his side at crucial junctures. If Venezuela are to have a chance of winning this one, he’ll need to up the ante yet again and put in another similar display with the side relying on his threes to propel them towards a win.
VEN vs ARG Dream11 Small Forward
Venezuela’s small forward Dwight Lewis is picked up by us here. Much like Pedro, he’s someone who can position himself on any side of the edge of the circle and eye his range to shoot down treys with ease. With Argentina’s stringent defence bound to close the gaps inside the 15 metre area, expect Venezuela to attempt lot many shots from outside which will see Dwight heavily involved today.
VEN vs ARG Dream11 Power Forward
The 9 points for Luis Scola the last time around perfectly epitomised his capability as a shooter with the player getting involved in his side’s plays perfectly, always ensuring that he was linking up or setting up lay ups for the rest of his side to convert.
Tayavek Gallizzi came on as a substitute and immediately registered three steals, a narrative which could see him involved more heavily today as his ability to wrench position and overturn it could end up being a crucial advantage for Argentina.
VEN vs ARG Dream11 Centre
Both the sides have centres who are the fulcrum of their gameplan up the court. In Marcos Delia, Argentina have someone who is not only the custodian of their own basket, putting in 2 blocks the last time around but a player who acts as a screen for the rest of his side to shoot their way and amass points for his side.
Elsewhere in Miguel Ruiz, Venezuela too have a similar player whose work both on and off the ball is immensely revered. His 10 rebounds saw him be extremely effective the last time around in attack as well, full filling his role to perfection.
Power forward Scola has been selected as our side’s captain for today.
