Round 16 of the EuroBasket brought their share of surprises this weekend, but the Germans and Greeks did the job to validate their ticket to the quarter-finals. As a result, we ended up with a very intense duel between Giannis Antetokounmpo and Mannschaft with the full support of their Berlin fans. No need to tell you that you’re going to have to be there tonight at 8:30pm, live on Canal Plus Sport.
The best eighth poster? Perhaps, anyway it’s hard to do the story level better. On the one hand, we have perhaps the most dominant player on the basketball planet who wants to take Greece to the top of Europe for the first time since 2005. On the other hand, we have an attractive German team from the start of the competition who wants to continue to thrill their fans, the ones that will be without Doubt boiling hot this evening at the Mercedes-Benz Arena. At stake, a place in the quarter-finals and a showdown either against Spain or against Finland if Laurie Markanen continues to take himself to Kevin Durant. Suffice it to say that she will fight hard from the first to the fortieth minute, from the first to the twelfth.
We saw it again this weekend, nothing is easy in this euro. France needed a miracle not to come home, Serbia led by Nikola Djokic had already returned home, and Our evening opponents sweat a little to get to the quarters. Against the Czech Republic, the Greeks had to wait the last 10 minutes to make the difference behind Giannis in setting the steam propeller after three quarters, far from his standards. The Germans preferred the opposite scenario, beating Montenegro in the first half as expected before fearing against Kendrick Perry in a Stephen Curry setting. There, tonight, the air pockets will be forbidden because in front of them they will not render any service.
Bad news for the Germansthey would probably have to manage without a nugget Franz WagnerAnd hit the ankle against Montenegro. Nothing is official at the moment and we are making a decision on the match time, but that doesn’t feel good about it. And given the madness he’s been able to achieve since the euro’s inception, he doesn’t feel good about Germany either. His potential absence will inevitably put more pressure on Dennis Schroeder, who will have to turn to Dennis the Danger so that the Germans have a real chance of passing. That’s fine, because we believe in it on the other side of the Rhine much more than we do on the other side of the Atlantic.
He is our main leader. He is at the heart of our game, both in attack and in defence. Dennis has gained experience over the years, and it shows in his playing in this tournament. […] He is one of the best point guards in Europe, all over the world. Lead us to victory. It is fun to play with him. German basketball can be happy to have it. »

It’s been years since Germany played a game of this magnitude. Since 2005 and won the silver medal at the European Championships behind Dirk Nowitzki (defeat in the final to … Greece), Germany has not reached a single podium. So tonight’s victory over the Greeks – among the top favorites in the tournament – could simply mark a turning point for German basketball. But do Schroeder and his cohorts have the shoulders to stop Giannis on a mission?
