21/04/2016 19:45 – FC Barcelona Lassa v Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar – Betting Tips
Despite losing the first game of the playoff, FC Barcelona have battled back to hold a 2-1 advantage, which means that they are one win away from clinching the final spot in the Final Four. Monday night saw CSKA Moscow gain passage to the big finals and on Tuesday night, Fenerbahce Istanbul and Laboral Kutxa Vitoria Gasteiz sealed their place. Will Barcelona join them or will Lokomotiv take the series back to Krasnodar for a deciding match?
The home side know what is at stake in this game and if they win, they head off to their 15th Euroleague Final Four. The most recent game between these two sides took place on Tuesday evening and the 82-70 home win was more than comfortable in the end for the Catalan club. Alex Abrines had a brilliant night after coming off the bench. He managed to sink 25 points with 15 of them coming in the second quarter, allowing the hosts to battle back after the away team came out with a high level of intensity. Players like Pau Ribas and Carlos Arroyo have been essential in the Catalan’s club control of the last two games and if they can deliver the goods again on Thursday night, it is likely Barcelona will be heading off to Berlin in May.

Lokomotiv need to win
It all looked so good at the end of the opening game in this series for the hosts but even that result masked an under par performance from Lokomotiv. It took a late rally to defeat the Catalan club and although the victory was the important thing, Kuban Krasnodar looked second best for large parts of the game. So it has continued in the next two games in the series and we are now at the stage where it is a do or die game for Lokomotiv. Players like Evgeny Voronov and Ryan Broekhoff really need to grab more points and give more vibrancy to a team who knows that losing is unacceptable in this game.
The bookmakers back the Catalan club to make it to the Final four and you can find FC Barcelona Lassa at -8, at odds of 1.90. For the Over/Under market, look to go OVER 147.5 which you can find at odds of 1.90. Bet Now!
