European Basketball Championship 2022 Group C

his 3The tenth International competition with Greece, Giannis Antetokounmpo will try to return a medal to his country, which he still lacks on his list. Therefore, it will be necessary to conduct difficult negotiations first in Milan against Italy and Croatia. Introducing Group C for the 2022 European Basketball Championship.

European Basketball Championship 2022: Greece in the favourite

The fashion capital of the world, Milan, offers us an open and attractive collection. With the Antetokounmpo brothers, Greece appears to be the favourite for this Group C. But Italy, which is endowed with typhossis and a style of play that focuses on 3-point shooting, will have the qualities to oppose the Greek side. And Croatia, led by Bojan Bogdanovic, will try to get back on track after a difficult few years. At the back, Great Britain and Ukraine should compete for the last ticket to the Round of 16 in Berlin. Little thumb for this group, Estonia will try to do well in this group C of the 2022 European Basketball Championship.

Greece Giannis as a scarecrow

With the Antetokounmpo brothers (Giannis, Kostas and Thanasis), Nick Calathes and Kostas Slokas, Greece will be the top team in this group C. Very physically, the Greeks will put pressure on the opposing attackers and impose a false rhythm in order to slow down. Down the match but the lip-burning question: will Giannis finally succeed in showing himself to his advantage in the FIBA ​​game? In 2015, the European demand discovery argument could be an excuse. In 2019, the Greek Freak was disappointed, not passing the second round of the World Championship. But since then, Giannis has become the best player in the NBA Finals and the most important player in the NBA Finals. A different stature than it was 3 years ago and a lot of experience accumulated. With G.Antetokounmpo at his level in the NBA, Greece will be a contender for the continental title.

Azzurra as a stranger

After disappointing and erratic results for more than 10 years, Italy seems to have regained its momentum since the summer of 2021. Winner of the TQO in Serbia to win a ticket to Tokyo, the Italians lost in the quarter-finals to the French national team, with good resistance. Now it remains to explore this new dynamic. Squadra Azzurra can count on a player with an understated talent in Europe, Simone Fontecchio. New to the Utah Jazz, the Italian 3-4 position is a pure goal scorer who can disgust any defense. Well-assisted by primary Niccol Milli and Danilo Gallinari, the Transalpins will be their go-to at long-distance, pure Italian style. But everyone knows, on a good day, Italy can beat any team in Europe.

What do you expect from Croatia?

After missing out on the 2019 World Championships, the 2021 Olympics, the Croats have already been eliminated from the qualifiers for the next World Cup in 2023. . The focus now remains on the European Basketball Championship 2022, the only meeting of the Balkan country before the upcoming Eurobasket tournament in 2025. However, the checkered selection has serious origins such as Bojan Bogdanovic, Dario Saric, Mario Hizonja, Ivica Zubac and Ante Zizic. But behind these strong players there is nothing to eat at the moment, trouble shooting away in competition, but enough to get through this 1Verse Round up to the quarter-finals, given that group C will intersect with group D, a group of the same level sees a tone below.

Beware the British

Quietly, Great Britain qualified easily for the 2022 European Basketball Championships. Present in the France group, the Britons paid themselves the luxury of hitting the Blues on the final day of qualifying. With a physical game that could hurt many teams, Great Britain doesn’t yet have the stars it once had (Ben Gordon, Lol Deng…). But it is a group that knows their qualities and will count on them to reach the 1/8 finals. The first Eurobasket match will decide the rest of the competition.

ukraine with heart

Ukraine, alarmed by the Russian invasion last February, will be keen to display values ​​and fight for the country’s honor. Ukrainians can target 4The tenth A place in this group, provided they beat their main opponent, Great Britain once they enter the competition. Behind his NBA players, Sflatoslav Mikhaylyuk and Alex Lin, Ukraine should not miss their start if they are to believe in their chances of seeing Berlin. But with a feeling of unity like never before, anything would be possible.

Estonia for fun

What do you expect from Estonia in the European Basketball Championship 2022? In a seemingly far-fetched group, the Estonians will come to Milan with the aim of proving that their place in the Eurobasket was justified. A team from Estonia just eliminated Poland from qualifying for the next World Cup, despite having reached the quarter-finals in China 3 years ago. So we have to take this team very seriously, starting with offensive leader and Baskonia player, Mike Califf Cotsar. Without pressure, Estonia will have nothing to lose this week in Milan.
