11-01-2017 16:30 BST - Avtodor Saratov v Maccabi Rand Media - Champions League Betting Tips

With both of these teams in the bottom half of Group B in the FIBA Champions League, this is shaping up to be an important clash in the regular season. The hosts are currently in seventh place and they hold a 4-7 record. The Israeli side comes with a 5-6 record and they are currently in sixth, so you can see how close this game is. The hosts will want the win that will push them above Maccabi in the table.

These two teams clashed earlier in the campaign and it was a convincing away win for Avtodor. The score finished 74-98 to the away side in that game, which was a pulverising defeat. The fact that Maccabi have bounced back and have the upper hand, at the moment, has to be seen as a positive thing for them but the memories of that defeat must linger.

You can bet that Saratov will be using the memories of that day as inspiration for this clash and with the home fans desperate to see a repeat of that win, and gain the head to head advantage over a close rival, this is likely to be a game that offers a great deal of excitement and drama.
