FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019: France V Argentina. Preview

Image source: FIBA

After two weeks of competition in China, just four teams remain in the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup.

France National team will take on Argentina, while on the other side of the bracket; an undefeated Spanish team will take on Australia in a rematch of the Bronze Medal game in the 2016 Olympic Games.

Spain is undefeated ahead of the final four. They have five different players reach double figures in scoring, led by 19 from Ricky Rubio.

Australia are likely going to need more production from their secondary contributors to keep pace with the deep Spanish side.

In the 2016 Olympic Games, Australia fell to Spain by one point in the Bronze medal game. That memory is likely still very fresh in the memory of the Boomers.

Prediction: 83-78 Spain
