Defending champions Spain will try to have another run to be the third team ever to win 3 consecutive European cups. In their starting game they will be facing Croatia which was ranked 13th in the previous tournament.

Despite still keeping the core that won the previous tournaments, Spain will be missing NBA duo Pau Gasol, Serge Ibaka, & Barcelona's sharp shooter Juan Carlos Navarro. It's no doubt that they will be affected but still they have enough good players to win it again here in Slovenia. Spanish sensational PG Ricky Rubio is one of the world's best technical players, the crowds love his game and passing skills. He will be supported by NBA defensive player of the year Marc Gasol and veteran forward Rudy Fernandez.

Croatia would try to qualify again to the world cup for a second time in a row when they start their opening game against Spain. The team relies more on Barcelona's star center Ante Tomic and American born PG Dontaye Draper who plays for Spanish giants Real Madrid.

The Spanish side has more chances to seal the win but keep an eye on the match up between centers Marc Gasol & Ante Tomic.
