World Cup 2023: Luka Dončić and Slovenia aim to close the First Round undefeated with a win against Cape Verde

Slovenia vs. Cape Verde: Wednesday, August 30th, 6:30 a.m. CET, 13.30 Europe

Cape Verde just made history Monday, securing their first win in a World Cup ever against Venezuela. The smallest nation in the tournament played with heart and never gave up, ending up on top against the Venezuelans 75-81.

Slovenia, almost certainly through to the next round after two victories out of two, cannot fall into the trap of coming into this matchup more relaxed than in their last game, however. Monday, they beat Georgia 67-88, with improved and more aggressive defense, especially on the perimeter.
