In the meantime, Spain defeated Serbia in a perfect game. So this shouldn’t be any harder. To have more insights on this FIBA World Cup 2019 Spain vs Poland match, please read our preview below.
Honestly, we can say that Poland was very lucky with draw, they haven’t faced any strong top teams, until Argentina, and then everyone saw, that Poland was lucky because they didn’t stand a chance against them. And now they have an even stronger opponent, so it is very hard to imagine Poland victorious. Of course they won’t give up but must start showing much better results, otherwise, they will face another crucial defeat.

So far Spain seemed to be struggling, all matches go point to point, however they managed to defeat Italy and Serbia, where many people thought Italy could prevail. It seems quite strange because Spain has a very good squad-Rubio, Fernandez, Llull, Gasol all these players are experienced, they know how to play in such level and so far they cannot find the right form. Well, they have started to play well at the perfect time and must continue to show the same effort because Poland has an experienced, hungry team, and they will do everything to use this chance for an opportunity to take the medals.
