The final of the Euro basketball will take place this Sunday evening and will oppose the Blues to La Roja. A major match that could allow the France team to win the second European title in its history. Not to mention the sporting rivalry between the two teams that has lasted for many years.

The France-Spain Euro basketball final will take place this Sunday evening. The France team could win the second European title in its history. For that, it will be necessary to beat the Spaniards, the best enemies of the Old Continent. Generations pass, rivalry remains. Tony Parker, Boris Diot and the Gazol brothers are no longer there. But France, facing Spain, remains a classic of European basketball.

“A France-Brazil at football”

“Spain has been the historic rival now for a great decade. And yes, it’s a match that has a particular flavor. I feel it through the words of the old people who have been there for a long time”, recalls the one of the assistant coaches of the Blues, Pascal Donnadieu. “So we must not hide it, there is a certain rivalry through the finals, through the direct confrontations that there have been, through a few small clashes. So it’s really a France-Brazil football . We feel it’s a special game.”

France against Spain, this refers in particular to the final of the 2011 European Championship, when the band of Pau Gazol had deprived that of Tony Parker of a first international trophy. But it also refers, two years later, to this semi-final which saw the Blues overthrow La Roja. Blues who then won the European title. The only one to appear on their list before tonight’s final.
