Spain vs USA: an obvious favourite?
Current world champions have never in their entire history won a golden medal of the Olympic Games. In 2016, at Rio Spain became a bronze medalist, so far it is the best result of that European team. They got off to a great start at Tokyo - Japan (88:77) and a mighty Argentina (81:71) were beaten by Spaniards.
In the third match Sergio Scariolo's players failed to secure a victory over Slovenia (87:95).
USA national team has 18 Olympic medals on their account, 15 of them are the gold ones. After a successful qualification, where The Yanks had no rivals among the North American teams, USA started a Tokyo tournament with a defeat in a match against France (76:83).
NBA stars managed to step up in the second match and unleashed their force - a victory over Iran (120:66) and then over the Czech Republic in the closing match of the group stage (119:84).

This is an extremely interesting match, because we will see a current world champion and current Olympic champion on the court. Spain national team is looking great on defense and also put up a great performance in the paint and from behind the 3-point line. USA national team, despite the age, has some experienced NBA players in the line-up, who are able to beat any opponent.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (-12) on USA national team
