18-01-2017 20:30 BST - Strasbourg v Cibona - Champions League Betting Tips
At this stage of the season, Strasbourg cannot move down the table, they can either stay where they are or move up, which isn’t a bad position to be in. With a 7-5 record, the team sitting in fourth spot in the group is heading to the Round of 16 in the FIBA Champions League. However, the head to head will likely count against them from taking second spot although if there is a three way split for second, it could still fall the way of the French side. For the main though, the French side just have to keep winning and see how it pans out.
Cibona are currently sitting in 6th spot and hold a 5-7 record. A win would see them move up and be in the running for a spot in the Round of 16 although at the moment, the main focus for the Croatian team is to ensure that they are in the FIBA Europe Cup and then hope for the best. Cibona should find that the challenge from below them will come to nothing, so there is nothing to lose in this game which could push the away side further up the finished table.
