29-03-2017 20:30 BST - Umana Reyer Venezia v Pinar Karsiyaka - Champions League Betting Tips

This is shaping up to be a close run thing in the second leg of this FIBA Champions League quarter-final tie, which means it could be one of the best with respect to basketball betting this midweek. The away side come into this Wednesday night clash with a 3 point lead, which isn’t a big enough lead to sit and defend for the match, so we should see two battling to win the game and book their place in the semi-finals.

Pinar Karsiyaka 74 – Umana Reyer Venezia 71

The first half definitely belonged to Pinar, taking a 10 point lead in the opening quarter and then keeping their opponents at bay in the second quarter with a levelled score-line of 15-15. At the break, the hosts were sitting pretty at 40-30 but there was to be a turnaround. The fightback for the Italians began in the third quarter with a score of 15-17 but it was the 19-24 score of the final quarter that made the difference in hauling the game back and in the end, only three points separate these two sides before Wednesday night’s clash.

Mateusz Ponitka had a massive game in the first leg for Pinar, delivering 25 points and 8 rebounds, making him the star man for the hosts. There will be pressure on the player to deliver a similar level of performance in the second leg.

Umana want another big FIBA Champions League win

Melvin Ejim delivered 16 points and 7 rebounds for Umana and with the second leg of this tie coming at home, there will be a chance for Ejim to add to his tally for the FIBA Champions League season. Of course, there is a need for players on all both teams to step up and deliver a strong showing for their team, and it may be that the hero of the hour comes from an unexpected source.
