With both teams sitting on a 1-1 record in Group D, this match represents an opportunity to break into a positive return from the season and to start moving up the league. With both teams having strong defences, it may be a tough night for the offensive players at the Buesa Arena but with both teams having the ability to attack successfully from the perimeter, there is an opportunity for some excitement. With the defences likely to have the upper hand, the Over/Under market is priced at 1.90 for a score of 149.5.
Fernando San Emeterio and Orlando Johnson will be the players looking to spark Vitoria while their opponents will be relying on Peitro Aradori for some fast breaks and to take the pressure off of the defence.

A mini-showdown may decide this match
Many basketball games in the Euroleague centre on individual battles and the mini-showdown between Tornike Shengelia and Zoran Erceg will be at the heart of the match. If one player is able to come out on top, there is every chance that their team will be taking home the spoils on round 3 of the 2014/15 Euroleague season.
Galatasaray are able to call on three players who have played for their opponents before, so this could be an interesting night for some elements of the Turkish team. Ender Arslan, Vlad Micov and Carlos Arroyo are all assured of a warm welcome upon their return to Vitoria, and they will be especially fired up to take something from this match.
A major achievement for Ender Aslan
Given that Aslan is set to play in his 200th Euroleague game this week, it will be especially nice for the player to return to a former club and achieve this feat. This achievement will see Aslan becoming the 17th player to achieve this milestone.
With respect to free throws, Fabien Causeur of Vitoria has achieved 19 consecutive free throws while for the Turkish side; Ian Vougioukas has managed to make 10 consecutive free throws when involved with the Euroleague.
Both teams know that a win will place them into at least second place in Group D and while it is still very early on in the season, it is never a bad thing to be moving in an upwardly direction. While there is expectation that the defences will be on top in this match, the desire to win the game and move up the group standings may provide the impetus for one team to take the game by the scruff of its neck and press their opponents. The basketball betting sites think that Vitoria is the favourites for this match but it may be that taking Unics Laboral Kutxa Vitoria to win with the handicap -3.5 (1.90) is the best way to get value from the match. It is likely that this one will be close and that sort of margin will ensure that you are on the edge of your seat until the end of the game. Bet Now!
