France vs Australia surely will be the most interesting match of the day, because both teams haven’t lost a single game, so this match will decide who takes the first place before heading to Quarterfinals. To have more insights on this FIBA World Cup 2019 match, please read our preview below.
France is playing like everyone expected, with no loses and now is considered one of the title contenders, however, they have a long road to go. In the match against Lithuania, they barely survived, when 2:30 left to play, Lithuania were leading. However, with some controversial referee decisions, France managed to win the match and now will try to take the 1st place in the group. The opponent is quite similar, but they haven’t lost a single game with good reason, and France can’t let Australia get close at the end of the game because this time it can be decisive.

Just like France, Australia is marching with no loses, but they show less motivation, as they didn’t put all the effort in first round against Senegal, only Patty Mills came to practice before that match, so things like this might lead Australia to the first loss, another similar thing with France os that Australia also barely managed to defeat Lithuania, the game was more close. Australia was saved by Patty‘s three-point shot. Well if Australia wants to take the 1st place in the group, they must put in all effort, because that’s what it will take to defeat France.
