Euroleague Top 16 Betting Tips - Nizhny Novgorod v CSKA MoscowThis all Russian clash is the first game on Friday and if it goes to form, the away team should be triumphant in this one. Their previous meeting in the Euroleague was a tight affair in Moscow, a game that went to OT, but in the Russian VTB League, CSKA did grab a convincing 59-84 win in Nizhny. Both teams have some very big players in their squad, so there is an opportunity for either team to have match winners coming to the fore. It is always exciting when domestic rivals meet in an European competition and this match is sure to be one that is well worth keeping an eye on.

Nizhny currently holds an 8-13 record in the Euroleague this campaign, which includes a regular season record of 5-5 and a Top 16 record of 3-8, which is clearly a very poor record. CSKA come into this game with a 19-2 record in the Euroleague, so they will be keen to grab their 20th win of the campaign at the home of their Russian rivals. This record is made up of a 10-0 record in the regular season and then a 9-2 status in the Top 16.
