Croatia vs Turkey Preview & H2H
A very important match for both national teams. With a potential victory, Croatia would be one foot in Eurobasket because it would be its third victory in the same number of matches, while Turkey is under the imperative after defeats against the Netherlands and Sweden in February this year.
After a bad period and failure to qualify for the World Cup in China, Croatia has started these qualifications in a much better atmosphere and is doing quite well so far. In the first round, they easily defeated the Swedish national team at home, while in the second round, they defeated the Netherlands, with which they struggled a lot in the past. Coach Veljko Mrsic has a very experienced team, but of course, he will not be able to count on players who play in the NBA and Euroleague.
On the other hand, Turkey reckons that the Turkish basketball association will agree with Anadolu Efes on playing Shane Larkin in this window, which would of course be an invaluable reinforcement for this team. With him in the team, Turkey would dare to be the favorite in this game. Because a player of this caliber can win games all by himself that we could see in previous seasons of the Euroleague, where he broke records in the number of points given. However, there is still no confirmation of his playing, so it might be best to wait for the info the day before the game.
Croatia: R. Ukic, F. Kruslin, P. Marcinkovic, Z. Sakic, M. Bilan
Turkey: S. Larkin, D. Balbay, J. Birsen, B. Durmaz, S. Erden
