Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Georgia vs Serbia


The team got off to a bad start in the current qualifying tournament. In her first match here, she lost to the Danes away with a score of 69:75 (23:12, 14:16, 16:22 and 16:25). Sad story. You can’t call your opponent a favorite, but he handled Georgia quite confidently.

If we are trying to find something positive in that defeat, then we must highlight Shengelia in the team, who tried to pull out the match on himself. The guy scored 26 points, made six rebounds and handed out three assists. Also deserving of flattering words are: Thomasson (16/4/4), Ochkhikidze (11 points into the opponent’s hoop) and Shermadini, who found eight rebounds of the ball from the backboard.

Georgia is currently ranked 23rd in the world TOP according to FIBA, or 14th position if we consider only Europe. Denmark, which recently punished the team, is 58th in the world or 29th in the EU.


The team has already played one match in the current group stage of qualification. It was a game against the Finns. The Serbs took it with a score of 77:61. The opponent took the first part of the battle with impudence, and then he was put in place (17:20, 19:14, 22:17 and 19:10).

In that battle, the winning team performed well: Mitrovic, who almost reached a double-double (19 points and nine rebounds), Avramovic (18/3), Petrusev (eight points in attack, six collected goals on the board and five assists) and Davidovac (7/6/3).

It cannot be said that the Serbian basketball players worked at their maximum in that battle, but they confidently did their job, taking the match to the next level. Let us remind you that in the FIBA rankings the national team is currently in fifth place in the world or in third place if we are talking only about Europe. The Finns are in 20th and 13th positions, respectively.
