This isn’t just a game between two teams with pride at stake; the winning team will take part in the 2014/15 Euroleague. This is why there is a great deal riding on the outcome of this match, which means that tension will be high in Oostende when ASVEL Lyon Villeurbanne and UNICS Kazan clash in the final of the qualifying rounds for the Euroleague. As you’d expect, there are plenty of betting opportunities for the game.

ASVEL Lyon Villeurbanne trends

Given the nature of this tournament, the trend for ASVEL Lyon Villeurbanne has to take last season into consideration. The team has 3 wins and 2 losses to their name and have an average point tally of 79.2, although there is an outlier either way in two of these games. On current form, ASVEL Lyon have notched up 160 points in their two games this week, so they know what it takes to do on the offence. They’ve conceded 142 points in these two games, winning with a bit to spare. Taurean Green was the main man in the previous round for ASVEL and he’ll need to be at his best in this game.

UNICS Kazan trends

The same constraints with respect to fixtures are in place for UNICS Kazan and they boast a record of 2 wins and 3 losses, with one of these losses coming in OT. They have an average point tally of 80.40, boosted by their two recent wins. UNICS Kazan have also found their passage to the final straightforward, notching 172 points in their two games this week, conceding 157. D’or Fischer excelled on his last showing for UNICS and he could be the deciding factor in this game.

Lack of head to head statistics for this match

ASVEL Lyon v UNICS Kazan Betting TipsAs is often the case when teams clash in the European arena, there is sadly no head to head statistics available for this match. If you are the sort of punter that believes past results are a trend worth following, you will need to look elsewhere to find some assistance in determining who will come out on top between ASVEL Lyon and UNICS Kazan in Belgium this Friday night.

Conclusion

There isn’t a lot to choose between the two sides and the trends would suggest that ASVEL Lyon Villeurbanne have a narrow advantage. However, UNICS Kazan delivered a strong performance last season and their players know exactly what is required of them in games like this. ASVEL are attempting to get back on top, and have the desire to do so, but the big match experience of last season may be enough for UNICS, in my opinion, to steal the win that books their spot in the 2014/15 Euroleague.
