20-01-2017 18:00 BST - Zalgiris Kaunas v Real Madrid - Euroleague Betting Tips
With CSKA Moscow winning on Thursday night, it is essential that Real Madrid pick up an away win in Lithuania, in a clash of the champions. The Spanish side have a 12-5 record and are breathing down the neck of the reigning Euroleague champions while the hosts have a 6-11 record and are ranked in 14th place. The league table suggests that this will be a comfortable game for the away side but that isn’t always how things work in the Euroleague.
These two sides are very familiar and the game on Friday is set to be the 24th time that these two teams have clashed. They met earlier on in the season and it was the Spaniards that won at home, scoring a 96-91 triumph. One big player that night for Madrid was Luka Doncic, who provided 17 points. One interesting thing about this game is that Jonas Maciulis will be squaring up against his former team for Madrid while Augusto Lima is a Madrid player on loan in Kaunas.

Madrid are finding form again in Euroleague action
The home fans will look towards Paulius Jankunas and he has provided an average of 13 points per game this season. There has also been strong support from Brock Motum, with an average of 12.8 points per game while Leo Westermann has offered an average of 8.5 points per game. It will be a tough challenge for Zalgiris but if these players find form, it could be an interesting evening.

Other Madrid players that have had an impact include Anthony Randolph, with an average of 10.2 points per game while Gustavo Ayon has offered an average of 9.2 points per game. There should be enough big name players to get Madrid over the line in this game.
