Georgia - Italia
Decisive match of the final round of group B in Israel at Menora Mivtachim Aren in which Georgia has to win to secure the knockout stage.
Start of the match: 06.09.2017.-16:30 CET
Traditionally Georgia has been more motivated and playing better in games against stronger and more reputable names and they managed to stay in contention for the next phase thanks to the wins over Lithuania(79:77) in the opener and over the hosts Israel after OT in the previous round(104:91). They have one of the best rosters in their history with the Greek coach Zouros who is doing a very solid job and with the advantage they have in the frontcourt over Italy they have more than good chances to win this match and secure the knockout stage before the tonight´s match of the hosts Israel who are playing for pride against Ukraine who can still surpass Georgia in case of their defeat because of a better h2h record. Italy has already secured next phase and they can rest some of their starters so we don´t see them as the favorites in this game which is to be or not to be for Georgia.
Georgia - Italia TIP
Georgia needs to win to progress from the 4th place of the group because in case of a defeat Ukraine could go through with over the hosts Israel who are playing for pride. Ukraine has beaten Georgia in their h2h game so Georgia will have to win this and we think the handicaps and odds are pointless for this match. Main site: http://kladionica.biz/
