19/04/2016 19:45 – FC Barcelona Lassa v Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar – Betting Tips
This is the only playoff game at this stage which has seen both teams win a game. FC Barcelona managed to buck the trend by winning the second game in Krasnodar and this now gives the Catalan team home advantage in this series. This means that this is the only series that cannot be ended in the first game so both sets of players, and fans, know that there will definitely be two games in Barcelona to look forward to this week.
Ante Tomic is the key player for Barcelona this season but with an average of 10.3 points per game, you can see that Barcelona have been struggling for points more than some other teams. There is a lot to be said for having a squad of players all chipping in with points, so this isn’t necessarily a bad thing but it is good to know you have one player who can dig you out a hole at times. The play and form of Barcelona has improved a lot since the turn of the year and while the Catalan club aren’t a big tip for the tournament, they have the chance to make it to the Final Four and once you are there, anything can happen.

Lokomotiv looking to bounce back
With an average of 15.8 points per game, Malcolm Delaney is a player that can make a difference and if the Krasnodar side are looking to avenge that loss at home last week, he is the player that is most likely to make a difference. The home defeat changes the situation for Lokomotiv but they have a strong enough record this season to have no fear about heading to Barcelona. Lokomotiv lost by four points when they played in Barcelona in Round 5 of the regular season but that narrow defeat and some of their play in the two games in the last week will leave the away side feeling as though they can triumph in this game.
The bookies think the hosts will win this one and taking FC Barcelona Lassa at -7.5 at odds of 1.90 isn’t a bad idea. For the Over/Under market, look to go OVER 146.5 at odds of 1.90. Bet Now!
