U20 Women's Games: Saturday 16 July

MATOSINHOS (2016 FIBA U20 Women's European Championship 2016) - Here are all the games to look forward to on the penultimate day of the 2016 FIBA U20 Women's European Championship 2016, including the Semi-Finals.

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

Spain v Russia

It's a repeat of last year's Semi-Final which Spain won convincingly with a 76-50 success. It could be a lot different this time around with Russia looking for Raisa Musina to come up with a big game after she was quiet in the Quarter-Final against Poland.

Serbia v Italy

Italy completed a fantastic comeback against Latvia to reach the last four and the podium is familiar territory having scooped two medals in the last three editions of the event. Serbia are on a roll and looking to hit the podium steps for the first time since 2008.


Belgium v Poland

Both teams pushed hard in the Quarter-Finals but came up short and pride is on the line in pursuit of fifth place.

France v Latvia

The tears were flowing from both sets of players after they were beaten by Serbia and Italy respectively. Both close losses and in the case of Latvia, a complete implosion, which makes this game much about who bounces back the best mentally.


Sweden v Netherlands

Having secured a ticket to Division A for 2017, both teams are likely to enjoy this match-up with the pressure of staving off relegation having evaporated.

Portugal v Bosnia and Herzegovina

Having made history with their first-ever win in the top tier and also securing safe passage to Division A next summer, Bosnia and Herzegovina will be on a real high. Portugal also survived with a nerve-shredding win against Turkey and you could hear the collective sigh of relief far beyond Matosinhos.


Greece v Germany

Greece missed their chance in a tight game against Sweden and so are looking to finish with two wins to secure their survival. Meanwhile the wheels have come off for Germany in the past couple of outings and they need to get on track again.

Turkey v Slovak Republic

There are only two chances left for Turkey to get a first win of the competition and if it doesn't come until the last day of the tournament, then they will have already fallen through the trap door into Division B. That is why this game against Slovak Republic is so important - to both teams.
