EuroBasket 2007 qualifying is nearly complete, and there are several teams who are within a shout of taking the six places on offer for the final round.
The top teams from each group qualify directly to EuroBasket along with the two best second placed teams, determined according to:
The following is a breakdown of the possible scenarios in each group.
Poland has already secured first place in the group and a berth at EuroBasket 2007, but the race for second place is open between Ukraine, Bulgaria and Sweden
The following fixtures are due to take place on Saturday:
Sweden vs Bulgaria
Ukraine vs Poland
The following scenarios are possible.
Group B is by far the most open of all the groups and each of the four teams has a shot of grabbing first place after Saturday's games which are:
Portugal vs Israel
Bosnia & Herzegovina vs FYROM
The following scenarios are all possible
The following fixtures are due to take place in Group C
Czech Republic vs Russia
Hungary vs Belgium
The group is far clearer than the others as the game between Russia and Czech Republic will decide first and second place:
Whoever finishes in second place in this group will have a good chance to qualify as one of the best second-placed teams.
Croatia have already wrapped up top spot in Group D and Latvia second.
The only question is whether Latvia finish with a 3-3 or 4-2 record based on whether or not they beat Denmark on Saturday. A 4-2 record will obviously increase their chance of qualifying as one of the two best second placed teams.
