U16 Women's Games: Sunday 7 August

UDINE (FIBA U16 Women’s European Championship 2016) - We take a look at the line-up of games on the second day of action of the FIBA U16 Women’s European Championship 2016 in Udine.

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

Follow the action on the FIBA Live Feed.   

Hungary v Portugal

Both teams were shot down on day one and so will be looking to bounce back and one of them will get rolling with a first victory in Udine.

Belarus v Czech Republic

Belarus racked up the highest score of the day in their opener against Serbia to get a first win at the event in six years - but holders Czech Republic will provide the true measure of their capabilities.

Lithuania v Russia

Russia could feel under real pressure in this one as potentially going 0-2 at any youth tournament is something of a novelty for such a powerhouse. Especially as Lithuania would love to continue their good form from their first win against Turkey into this game against their neighbours.

Croatia v Slovak Republic

Both nations endured defeats, but in very different circumstances. Slovak Republic were locked down by Sweden and didn't break 30 points, while Croatia pushed the highly-fancied France hard so will be hopeful of a success in this one.

Latvia v Serbia

It's another match-up between two teams who crashed in their opening game and the prospect of going 0-2 will be an unthinkable one - perhaps more for Latvia who had high hopes heading into this competition.

Sweden v France

Whoever wins this one will be sitting pretty and 2-0 after both won their first games. Sweden have an all new line-up, while France look to have depth.

Germany v Spain

Described as dark horses, Germany are now in the spotlight after they tore down Portugal in their first game. They look to have an exciting line-up, but can they cope with the defensive pressure and pressing of the Spanish who eased past Hungary?

Italy v Turkey

Italy will feel they have a great opportunity to move to two wins after Turkey's poor first night performance and the hosts' brilliant win against Russia. But Italy will want to make sure they don't slip up.
