19.01.16 – 18:15 hrs – Macedonia vs. Serbia
A battle for a place in the main round between two teams from former Yugoslavia, could it have come any better? The rivary is on, forget about tactics. Power and will should be what’s most important in this emotional encounter. Petar Nenadic or Kiril Lazarov, who will lead his team to the next round? Both teams played well against Poland, but had no chance against France. It will be close, it will be physical, it will be fun to watch.
Prediction: Serbia by one.
19.01.16 – 20:30 hrs – France vs. Poland
Poland is under pressure to go far in this tournament and you could see it in the first two games of the red and white. The crowd is behind its team, by right now France looks far more relaxed and despite of lot of missing key players like William Accambray or Jerome Fernandez the defending champion is cruising. And Nikola Karabatic looks fit and powerful as always. Poland is the underdog in this one, but maybe the fans can push them to an upset.
Prediction: France by two.
