24-01-2017 20:30 BST - Le Mans Sarthe v Avtodor Saratov - Champions League Betting Tips

The hosts are already qualified to the Round of 16 in the FIBA Champions League and will do so in first place. Their record of 9-4 means that they may be equalled at the end of the final game but their head to head record against their challenger ensures that Le Mans Sarthe can look forward to a week off next week. This isn’t the case for away team Avtodor Saratov, who have a big challenge on their hands. The Russians are currently in 5th with a 6-7 record but there are four teams in the group with a 6-7 record at this point of the campaign.

This means this is a huge game for the away side and there are three other teams involved in a fight to the end. On paper, Avtodor may be cursing their luck at having to play the table-toppers at this stage but with Le Mans already through, this could work in Avtodor’s favour. If the hosts play a weakened side or don’t have the spirit for a fight, the away team may cause a minor upset and consolidate their final placing in Group B.

Avtodor Saratov need to avenge earlier FIBA Champions League loss

When these sides met earlier in the season, it ended 78-96 to Le Mans. The French side have been in dominant form for a lot of the season, and they are worthy leaders of the group. This is a very different test though and it is likely that the away team will have all the motivation they need to impact on this match and get a good result.

For the hosts, it has been a shared experience with a good squad, which is why their leading point scorer has only achieved an average of 12.4 points per game. Ryan Pearson has been hugely influential for Le Mans and it is likely he will impress further throughout this season. For Avtodor, Nicolas Minnerath has been in sensational form, offering an average of 20 points and 7.1 rebounds per game.
