The Spanish National Team disputes this Saturday the first match of the triangular that is played in Italy. The rival will be Slovenia, a team in the process of growth that will host the next EuroBasket 2023. The match can be followed live through Teledeporte and the Outconsumer Twitch channel starting at 7:00 p.m.
The Spanish selection face the last part of the Road To The Future Tour with their next two matches on Italian soil against the teams of Slovenia and Italy. This Saturday, June 18, starting at 7:00 p.m., Spain will begin the triangular match against Slovenia, a clash that can be seen live both on Teledeporte, as well as through the Twitch channel of Outconsumer and the Spanish Basketball Federation.
They will be the hosts of the next EuroBasket and that is synonymous with the fact that the Slovenian team is putting together the pieces to create a team that is as competitive as possible for the summer of 2023. A goal that is not far from what La Familia sets out to do.
Thus, against the 12 from Spain there will be a rival with players with a long history in European clubs such as Eva Lisec, Teja Oblak or Shante Evans. Although, the experience of these players is combined with a lot of youth and with the illusion of being a National Team that is taking the first steps of its history on the fields of the old continent. They have only participated in the last three editions of a EuroBasket being the tenth place in the tournaments of 19 and 21 the best position they have achieved.
Spain-Slovenia is an unusual duel, just has been held once and it was in 1993 at the Mediterranean Games. The match ended with a Spanish victory by 67 to 60.
The national team will seek against Slovenia the third consecutive win of the summer and the fifth in the Miguel Méndez era, but above all, a different habitat will be tested when measuring a little-known rival on a neutral court.
