Group A of the World Baseball Classic (WBC) fell into chaos as Cuba defeated Taiwan and won its second game.
Currently, there are only 4 teams with 2 wins. In the end, it is expected that the two teams advancing to the quarterfinals will be covered only when the results of the final match between the Netherlands and Italy come out.
On the 12th, Cuba won 7-1 against Taiwan in the first round of the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) finals held at Intercontinental Baseball Stadium in Taichung, Taiwan. With this, Cuba, which started the tournament gloomy with two consecutive losses, revived the hope of advancing to the quarterfinals with 2 wins and 2 losses.
On the other hand, Taiwan won 2 wins (1 loss) in the finals of the tournament held in their home country first and suffered a complete loss in the 4th game, making it impossible to guarantee advancement to the quarterfinals with 2 wins and 2 losses.
At the same time, Group A became a total of 4 teams with 2 or more wins. The Netherlands is currently in first place with 2 wins and 1 loss (0.667 win rate) after playing 3 games, and 3 teams, including Taiwan, Cuba and Panama, have played 4 games and are 2 wins and 2 losses. Italy is at the bottom of the table with 1 win and 2 losses from 3 matches. mma 토토
But Italy still has one last chance. The result of the match between the Netherlands and Italy remains to be seen.
In the end, in Group A, depending on the situation, up to 5 teams may have a tie in the winning rate with 2 wins and 2 losses. In that case, it is not possible to cover the teams advancing to the quarterfinals with the winner-to-win, so the top 1st and 2nd place teams can be covered with the least amount of points.
