This will be the first World Cup 2019 match of group G which will be held at Shenzen Bay Sports Center. To have more insights on this FIBA World Cup match please read our preview below.


France has played seven games in preparation for this year World Cup, won five of them and that is a pretty good result, the only defeats they had to Turkey and Serbia and both only by five points. This year France is bringing a powerful squad and have also high expectations, most likely this match will be a decider of group winner, because Jordan and Dominican Republic won’t give any challenge and should be two easy wins.

Roster for FIBA WC 2019: 

PG: Frank Ntilikina, Andrew Albicy

Germany has played seven games in preparation for this year World Cup, the only loss was to Japan in the close game. Last victory against Australia should give some positive thoughts to Germans. However, considering the squad they brought, it should be difficult to challenge the stronger teams. Dennis Shroder obviously is Germany‘s leader, but he won’t be able to win all games, however, they should be relieved, that France is their toughest opponent in the group stage, 2nd place shouldn’t be a disappointment.

Roster for FIBA WC 2019:

PG: Ismet Akpinar, Maodo Lo, Dennis Shroder

SG: Andreas Obst

SF: Robin Benzing, Niels Giffey, Paul Zipser

PF: Maximilian Kleber, Danilo Barthel, Daniel Theis, Johannes Thiemann

C: Johannes Voigtmann
