01-03-2017 18:30 BST - ARIS v ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne - Champions League Betting Tips

The Greeks welcomed French opponents in the last round of the FIBA Champions League but Aris may find things a bit more difficult against ASVEL. This is shaping up to be a big clash and while there are five Wednesday night games in the Round of 16, this could be the one that grabs your eye.

It was a strong showing at home in the Playoff round that sees Aris through to the Round of 16. The home leg against SIG Strasbourg ended in a 71-52 result and even though Aris fell 81-70 in the second leg, they had enough of a lead stored up that they marched through to the next round of the tournament. In the end, the Greek side progressed by 8 points, and they’ll be looking for another big home performance against French opposition this midweek.

Aris finished fourth in group A of the FIBA Champions League and their 8-6 record was well off the pace of the group winners, AS Monaco. However, it was enough for the Greek side to progress and now that they are in the Round of 16, they know that this home tie represents their best chance of making it even further in the tournament.

ASVEL want to progress further in FIBA Champions League

ASVEL topped Group C but their 10-4 record was matched by the teams sitting in second and third place in the group. Obviously the French side had the head to head record that enabled them to qualify but they know that they aren’t the most formidable group leader to be involved at this stage of the competition. ASVEL will consider this a tie that can be won though and you can bet that they’ll be looking for a positive result on Wednesday evening.

Will Cummings has been in fantastic form for the hosts, providing an average of 14.9 points per game while Walter Hodge has chipped in with an average of 13.3 points per game for the French side.
