Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Serbia vs Finland


The national team traditionally has a good composition with great performers. I think the situation is similar now. The Serbs are the main contenders for winning in their group, which includes Finland, Georgia and Denmark. In principle, everything is to the point.

Serbia is currently in fifth place in the FIBA world TOP, or not third if we look at Europe separately. Very worthy. It is not necessary to win the group. Here it is enough to take third place, but the team will try to be the best here.

Nikola Jokic is the number one star in the national team, but no one will let him go to the qualifying match. Also, don’t wait for other Serbs from overseas. At the same time, this moment is not a failure, since the Serbs have plenty of quality basketball players in Europe.

Team entry: Avramovic, Koprivica, Jaramaz, Trifunovic (all from Partizan), Radanov (Runa), Uskokovic (Borac Cacak), Beslach (Avtodor), Davidovac, Mirtovic (both from Crvena Zvezda), Dobrich (Virtus), Djurisic (Mega ), Guduric (Fenerbahce), Marinkovic (Basque Country), Petrushev (Olympiacos) and Ristic (Tenerife). Thus, the Serbs have ten basketball players from the Euroleague.


The team currently ranks 20th in the FIBA world rankings, or 13th position if we are talking only about the Old World. Normal schedule. Let us note that the Finns have recently moved up quite well in the TOP rankings.

We must not take last place in the current group, then a ticket to EuroBasket will be in our pocket. In Quartet G, along with Finland and Serbia, there are also Georgia and Denmark. In principle, everything can work out.

The main star of Suomi basketball is Markanen. It would be very appropriate if the guy helped the team, but there is no information about his arrival in the team’s location. Moreover, his Utah Jazz are currently on a losing streak and have fallen out of the playoff zone, so he has more important things to do than qualify for EuroBasket.

Game Totals Prediction

The Finns are good in their own way and they are developing their basketball, but they are still a long way from the Serbian level. The home team will win the match with confidence and there can be no intrigue in the battle. The Serbs will work from a tight defence, in front they will save their energy, working strictly on the opponent. In such conditions it makes sense to bet on the total under (162.5) for 1.9.
