Australia put up a well-deserved fight against Team USA but just couldn’t sustain it for long enough as they went down 97-78. 

Meanwhile, Slovenia were agonisingly denied a first gold medal match at the Olympics as they pushed France all the way only to lose by a point 90-89.

Slovenia are back to get over the disappointment and win bronze and deny the Boomers.

  • The Boomers have a chance to win their first ever medal at the Olympics
  • This is Australia’s fifth time in a bronze medal match 
  • Australia have never won a bronze medal at the Olympics 
  • This is Slovenia’s first ever bronze play off match 

Head to Head 


These two teams have never faced off in the Olympics before. 

Australia Form

 
Australia threw everything at the United States in their semi-final clash. 

The Boomers started off with a bang and the Americans didn’t know what hit them with Australia leading by 15 points early in the first quarter. 

However, the Boomers just couldn’t sustain it for long enough and Team USA went on to win by 19 points. 

Slovenia Form

 
Slovenia had the perfect start to their Tokyo 2020 campaign after topping Group C with three wins from three games in a group that included Spain, Argentina and host nation Japan. 

One of their strengths from the group stages was their offence, as they also topped the group by scoring the most points with 329. 

They continued playing with an offensive brand of basketball as they met Germany in the quarterfinals, defeating them 94-70. 

Slovenia met France, who topped Group A, in the semi-final but the French proved too strong to win by a point.

Verdict

This one could go down to the wire as both showed glimpses of what they can do. Australia has been in this situation plenty of times before but have never got the result they wanted, while Slovenia has showcased the world how good they can be.
 
The Boomers' loss to America may too much to overcome for the bronze medal match with Slovenia tipped to win.
