13/05/2016 17:00 – CSKA Moscow v Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar – Betting Tips
This is the first time that two Russian sides have met in the Final Four but these two teams are no strangers to each other. This is the third time they will clash this season so this game is likely to be played out between two sides who are very familiar with each other. The VTB League games were both win by the away team but of course, on Friday evening, both of the teams will be away from home, playing in neutral Milan.
When the two teams clashed in Krasnodar back in March, CSKA ran out 65-77 winners and they were good value for this triumph. It will come as no surprise that the team’s dynamic duo were amongst the points. Milos Teodosic managed to deliver 22 points and Nando De Colo served up 18 points in the win, which was all the more impressive given that Cory Higgins was absent in that game. Teodosic and De Colo have bene in blistering form but that isn’t something that just applies to this season, this is something that Euroleague defences have been well aware of for a very long time. If these two players can hit the heights we all know they are capable of, CSKA Moscow could have something to celebrate.

Lokomotiv know how to beat CSKA
While CSKA Moscow pointed to the absence of Higgins in their November win, the same game saw Lokomotiv play without Anthony Randolph and Matt Janning. The impact of these players was shown in the return game in Moscow in February which saw Randolph grab 28 points. This was an 88-94 win for the team from Krasnodar and they’ll be confident that they can down CSKA again in Milan. This is the first time that Lokomotiv have made the Final Four and their success this season has been dependent on the form of Dontaye Draper and Malcolm Delaney. It is no exaggeration to say that this is a match-up of attack versus defence and who comes out on top is likely to be the victor come the end of the match.
It is probably no surprise to learn that the bookmakers are backing the Moscow side to make their way through to the final. You can back CSKA Moscow at -7, which is on offer at odds of 1.90.
