18-01-2017 16:30 BST - Avtodor Saratov v Umana Reyer Venezia - Champions League Betting Tips

The hosts are in sixth place but such is the tight nature of this group, they could still end up bottom or pushing through for a guaranteed place in phase 1 of the Round of 16. The 5-7 record is far from ideal for the Russian side but their potential progress is still in their hands, which means that they will be keen to take control of this game as best as they can.

Umana head to Russia in second place in Group B of the FIBA Champions League and they can still take top spot, which is all that they will be focused on. There is a threat from below for the Italians to consider but this has to be a game that they think they can win. The 8-4 record means that they will finish fourth at the lowest, which guarantees passage to the next stage but Umana will have aims on loftier ambitions.

When these sides met earlier in the season in Italy, it was a high scoring game. There were 197 points in the match as Reyer triumphed by a score of 106-91, and there will be plenty of people hoping for a similar score in this game.
