02-02-2017 18:45 BST - Fenerbahce Istanbul v CSKA Moscow - Euroleague Betting Tips
This is a rematch of the Championship game from last season, and this is likely to be a very close game. There isn’t much between the two sides this season and the champions are in a bad run of form in recent weeks. The Istanbul side have a 13-7 record on their side and they know that this could be a great chance to blow the top of the league wide open. The Russians carry a 15-5 record and are still a formidable outfit but they have certainly dipped in recent weeks, although injuries haven’t helped.
These teams have a long and illustrious history in European action and they have clashed on 21 occasions. The Russians lead by 16-5 but they did lose the last game.
When these teams met earlier on this season, the Turkish team grabbed a win in Moscow, taking the game 79-95 in overtime. There was a massive showing from Bobby Dixon who provided 25 points and 6 assists, which is all the more remarkable considering he came off of the bench in that game. That was a game when CSKA were without Nando De Colo so they turned to Milos Teodosic, and he provided 21 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists in the defeat. However, Teodosic has been absent from the last three CSKA games, so he may not be around to turn to on Thursday night.
