25-01-2017 20:30 BST - Valencia Basket v Unicaja Málaga - Eurocup Betting Tips
This is yet another all-Spanish clash in the EuroCup and this is only the second time that these sides have met in European activity. They know each other very well in domestic games but the clash last week in Malaga was the first time that these old foes have met other in this style of game. There hasn’t been a long wait for the second time and both teams will be desperate for a win.
Heading into last week’s game, both sides held a perfect 2-0 record at this stage of the EuroCup but it was Valencia who took the spoils and who have moved onto a 3-0 record. The 70-78 win splits the teams, leaving Malaga with a 2-1 record. A key player on the court was Will Thomas, who managed to boost Valencia with 15 points and 4 rebounds in the game. Given that Thomas has previously played for Unicaja Malaga, that would have been a massive homecoming for the player. Unicaja were strengthened by 17 points from Jamar Smith but it wasn’t enough to turn the victory in their favour.
