Czech Republic expectedly lost yesterday against Montenegro, it was a big blowout, but they arent that bad as they showed yesterday. Lubor Blazek and the Czech team must cope without the now retired Eva Viteckova and also Petra Kulichova who has skipped the summer. A large chunk of responsibility will be apportioned to the many EuroLeague Women champions on display from ZVVZ USK Prague including a familiar trio of Katerina Elhotova, Ilona Burgrova and Jana Vesela. These players will carry Czech Republic to win today.
Ukraine head coach Vadim Czeczuro has had to deal with an injury crisis in recent months and even on the eve of the Final Round has had more bad luck come his way. With several of his big hitters such as Oleksandra Kurasova, Valeriya Berezhynska and Olesia Malashenko having already been ruled out, the play-caller has also now lost rising star Vita Gorobets to an injury. It means that Alina Iagupova will carry even more weight on her shoulders. She scored 19 points on 17 FG yesterday.. That's a bad number, Ukrain was very weak in the paint, France outrebounded them with 55-21!!! That's nearly impossible, France collected 20(!) offensive rebound, Gruda colletced 15 on her own... France had 19 turnovers despite that they won with 24... It could be more if they didnt turn the ball over many times..
Great match for Czech Republic for a bounce back, they need this win to stay in the hunt. My pick is a bigger win for them. I expect a 10-15 point difference.
