Greece vs New Zealand Tips


Greece arrive for their latest match at the FIBA World Cup looking to hit back following their damaging 109-81 defeat at the hands of the USA in their second outing.

New Zealand bounced back from a heavy 99-72 loss to the USA in their first match by edging past Jordan to open their World Cup account. 

Head to Head


The two sides have met three times before, with Greece winning all three matches. The last of this trio of wins came back in 2019 as Greece downed their opponents 103-97 at the World Cup. 

Greece Form 


Greece's opening match at the 2023 FIBA ended in a comfortable 92-71 win over Jordan that saw the side put their mark on what is a very tough World Cup group, with the USA the side they came up against in their second match of the tournament.  

Their second match saw Greece fall to a comfortable 109-81 defeat at the hands of the USA, with this seeing the Greeks move onto three points from their two games, ahead of New Zealand courtesy of their points difference. 

Now, with their must-win game against New Zealand on the horizon, Greece have to be better in this one, with the side struggling to get going against a very going USA side. 

New Zealand Form 


New Zealand battled hard in their opening clash with the USA at the World Cup, but it was always going to be very tough to defeat a very good USA side. 

The second match of their campaign saw New Zealand battle to an extra-time win over Jordan as they secured their first triumph in a 95-87 victory. This win has put them right in the battle to get out of the group following a tough start.

New Zealand come into this one on the back of a win, but they take on a side they have struggled against in their recent meetings, and it would be a real turn out for the books if they could end their losing run to Greece in a World Cup encounter.
