2023 World Cup European Qualifiers Italy vs Russia 11/26/2021 Picks Predictions Previews

 

Team Russia are facing Team Italy at the Yubibeyniy Sports Complex in Saint Petersburg, Russia on Friday, November 26, at 11:00 ET in this first round Group H matchup of the 2023 European World Cup Qualifiers.

 

Russian did not make it to the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games as they were eliminated in the qualifiers. On the other hand, Italy participated in the Olympics and made it to the playoffs where they got eliminated in the first round.

 

Team Russia finished the group stage of the Olympic Game Qualifiers with a 0-2 record and were placed last in Group A3, thus not making it to the next round.

 

They are coming off a defeat against Team Germany with a 67-69 score, even though they shot better than their opponents both from the field (50% to 42.6%) and from behind the arc (56.8% to 51.9%). Only one of their players scored double digits and that was Andrey Vorontsevich with 17 points and 3 rebounds.   

 

He leads the team in scoring with 14 ppg, in rebounding with 5.5 and in assists made with 4 per game. Semen Antonov adds 11 ppg and 5 rebounds per game. 

 

Team Russia had the second-worse offense in the tournament with 65.5 ppg while allowing 70.5 ppg defensively. They had the second-best field goal percentage with 48.1% and a 34.1% 3-point percentage. They were third-best in assists made with 16.5 per game.

2023 World Cup European Qualifiers Italy vs Russia Predictions 11/26/2021

 

Team Italy finished the group stage of the Olympic Games with a 2-1 record and were placed second in Group B. In the first round of the playoffs they got defeated by Team France with a 75-84 score and got eliminated.

 

They had a terrible time shooting the ball, connecting to just 32.4% of their shots from the field. Simone Fontecchio led the team in scoring with 23 points, while Danilo Gallinari added 21 points and a team-high 10 rebounds for the double double. 

 

Fontecchio leads the team in scoring with 19.3 ppg, adding 3 rebounds per game. Nico Mannion adds 12.5 ppg and leads the team in assists made with 4.5 per game. 

 

Team Italy averaged 82.5 ppg offensively while allowing 80.7 ppg defensively. They had a 43% field goal percentage and a 31.7% 3-point percentage.  

 

Italy won both meetings against Russia in the 2022 Eurobasket qualifiers by 66-70 and 83-64. They have a 9-4 lead in their 13 total meetings in any competition ever.

 

Team Italy has been strong in recent tournaments, while Russia have been very underwhelming and even though they play in front of their home crowd, I’m still going to pick Italy to beat the odds today.
