After the victory over Georgia with 92:80 last night, today basketball Bulgaria will tremble in anticipation of the development of the last game of our national team at EuroBasket 2022.
He contrasts Rosen Barchowski’s selection against Belgium with the situation literally being all or nothing. After having accumulated three defeats in a row, yesterday the “lions” dealt with the host of the group in the middle of Tbilisi.
The calculations look like this: a victory of the Bulgarians over Belgium will ensure our place in the next phase in Berlin, and Montenegro will continue there, and the Belgians and Georgians will be eliminated from the group.
Such a turn of events would be sweet Bulgarian revenge, albeit belated, against Georgia. In 2011, at the European Championship in Lithuania, our team took off after a triple carousel, from which the Georgian national team continued.
At 5:15 p.m. today in “Arena Tbilisi” Alexander Vezenkov, Dee Bost and the rest of Rosen Barchovski’s selections go out for their second match in less than 24 hours. The leader of our team and star of Olympiakos Vezenkov paid attention to the tough program, saying that he can show much more, but the fatigue speaks for itself.
Our last meeting with the Belgians also dates back to EuroBasket 2011, when the two teams again played in the group phase and ours prevailed with 68:65.
Today in Belgium’s squad there are two players who were in it 11 years ago – Jonathan Tabu and Maxime de Zeeuw. From our side, these are Chavdar Kostov and Alexander Yanev.
Meanwhile, with his incredible game against the Georgians, Dee Bost equaled the record of legend Sasha Djordjevic, who was the last player to score 9 three-pointers in European finals.
You can watch the match with Belgium live on BNT 3 from 17:15.
