01-02-2017 18:00 BST - Zenit St Petersburg v Nizhny Novgorod - Eurocup Betting Tips
We have an all-Russian clash in Group G in the Top 16 of the EuroCup and it looks as though this is going to be a thrilling game. Both teams are still in contention for the next stage of the tournament but this is last chance saloon for Nizhny. The away side comes into this game with a 1-3 record and fi they lose this match; they can say goodbye to their playoff hopes. The home team are in slightly better shape, sitting with a 2-2 record and they know that they still have a chance of success in the group, but they won’t want to lose the game.
These teams aren’t strangers to each other and they have faced each other on three occasions in the Eurocup. Nizhny holds the upper hand, both historically with a 2-1 record and with respect to the game that was played earlier this season, when they grabbed a 113-105 win. That was a night of a lot of points and DeAndre Kane led the way with 31 points and 9 rebounds. It was no surprise that he was named the MVP for that week’s action. Zenit were boosted by 17 points and 5 assists from Stefan Markovic but it is easy to see why Nizhny ran away with the game in the end.
