The United States and Serbia face off in the gold medal game of the FIBA World Cup at the Palacio de Deportes de la Comunidad de Madrid on Sunday.  

The unbeaten Americans are the favorites in this final match-up being the defending world and Olympic champions. 

Head coach Mike Krzyzewski's wards swept Group C after cruising past Finland (114-55), Turkey (98-77), New Zealand (98-71), the Dominican Republic (106-71) and Ukraine (95-71). In the knockout stages, the Americans rolled past Mexico (86-63), Slovenia (119-76) and Lithuania (96-68).

With several NBA All-Stars in the rosters, the Americans have the advantage over the Serbians in all categories.

Half the squad is averaging in double figures in scoring with guard James Harden (13.1 ppg, 3.4 apg, 2.2 spg) and young center Anthony Davis (13 ppg, 6.9 rpg, 2.2 bpg) emerging as the most consistent performers.

Joining forces with Harden in USA's dreaded backcourt are 2014 NBA All-Star Game MVP Kyrie Irving (10.4 ppg, 3.5 apg, 2.1 spg) and the sweetshooting Golden State duo of Klay Thompson (12.8 ppg) and Stephen Curry (10.8 ppg, 3.2 apg).

Davis, meanwhile, will team up with Kenneth Faried (12.5 ppg, 7.9 rpg) and DeMarcus Cousins (9.4 ppg, 5.1 rpg) in the frontline.

Serbia's road to the final, in contrast, was more difficult. The Balkan powerhouse barely qualified for the last 16 after placing fourth in Group A with a 2-3 record. Head coach Aleksandar Djordjevic's troops beat Egypt (85-64) and Iran (83-70) and lost to France (73-74), Brazil (73-81) and host Spain (73-89).

The Serbians, however, made up for their sluggish start by eliminating Group B winner Greece (90-72) in the Round-of-16 and avenging their earlier defeats to Brazil (84-56) and France (90-85) in the next two rounds to reach the final of this competition for the first time since 2002.

Leading Serbia in this match-up are guards Milos Teodosic (14 ppg, 4.1 apg) and Bogdan Bogdanovic (11.6 ppg) and center Miroslav Raduljica (13.5 ppg, 4.8 rpg), who played in the NBA last season.

Djordjevic will also count on forward Nemanja Bjelica (11.1 ppg, 7.4 rpg) and center Nenad Krstic (7.5 ppg).

This is the first ever meeting between the United States and Serbia in a World Cup final. Team USA is aiming to become the first team to win back-to-back world titles since Serbia achieved the feat in 1998 and 2002 under the FR Yugoslavia name. The powerhouse squad is also determined to win its fourth-straight gold in a major FIBA world tournament having triumphed at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, 2010 World Cup and 2012 London Olympics.
