U20 Women's Games: Friday 15 July

MATOSINHOS (FIBA U20 Women's World Championship 2016) - Here are Friday's eight games at the FIBA U20 Women's European Championship 2016 including the Quarter-Finals.

Watch all of the action live on FIBA's YouTube channel.

Spain v Belgium

The defending champions will have to be on their guard against a Belgium side whose confidence is now flowing and are searching for a third straight victory.

Poland v Russia

While Russia remain strong favourites behind the outstanding contributions of Sparta&K M.R. Vidnoje duo Daria Kolosovskaia and Raisa Musina, Poland have already upset hosts Portugal and swept aside Germany so must be respected.

Italy v Latvia

Italy may be 4-0 for the tournament, but it was only after scraping past Bosnia and Herzegovina. Latvia played their best basketball so far in their Round of 16 success against Slovak Republic, so it looks finely balanced on paper.

Serbia v France

France are also yet to taste defeat, but had to dig themselves out of a hole in their last game against Turkey as Lisa Berkani came up big. Serbia upset the party for Portugal and will want to spring another surprise.


Sweden v Greece

Greece almost reached the Quarter-Finals but just came up short and unlike Sweden, they have a victory to their name. Greece will be confident of doubling their win total for the tournament, having beaten the Netherlands. 

Germany v Netherlands

It's a shock to most fans seeing Netherlands battling for their Division A status, but reality will bite against the energetic Germans who were not at their best against Poland in the Round of 16.

Portugal v Turkey

With the hosts feeling low after consecutive losses in front of big crowds, they must pick themselves up against a Turkey team still looking for an elusive first win.

Bosnia and Herzegovina v Slovak Republic

Bosnia and Herzegovina played so well in the Round of 16 against Italy and almost caused one of the biggest upsets in the history of the tournament. If they play in a similar way against Slovak Republic they might like their chances of a historical first win.
