Stadium: Saitama Super Arena.
The Slovenian national team, led by the magnificent player Luka Doncic, will play its final match of the group stage against Spain. Will the Slovenians be able to finish the group without losing a single match? Let's choose several options for betting at once.
Spain is moving steadily through the tournament
The Spaniards won both starting matches of the Olympics. Moreover, the difference in the score in both games was more than 10 points. Spain beat Japan with a score of 88-77 and then beat Argentina 80-70. The Spaniards simply confirmed their status as the favorite team in the tournament by beating inferior rivals on the group stage.
Ricky Rubio is the best player on the Spanish team. The Minnesota defender scored 20 points against Japan and 26 against Argentina.
Slovenia can reach much higher
Luka Doncic is tearing up the world basketball. The phenomenal Slovenian scored 48 points against the Argentinians (118- 100) and 25 against the Japanese team (116- 81). This is just the beginning. This Olympic tournament may well end with Doncic's getting a medal.
Who else is worth mentioning in the Slovenian team? In the meeting of the second round against Japan, Zoran Dragic showed himself great. The Basque Country player and brother of Miami Heat defender Goran Dragic, who did not go to Tokyo, scored 24 points. Vlatko Chanchar from Denver scored 16 points, Valencia defender Klemen Prepelič scored 12 points.
