04-01-2017 20:45 BST - UCAM Murcia v Montakit Fuenlabrada - Eurocup Betting Tips
Group E in the Top 16 of the Eurocup gets underway with a clash between two Spanish sides. Both teams will be looking for their first ever win in the Top 16, and given that the two sides will be very familiar with each other, we could be in for a tight battle. This is the first time that these two teams have clashed in European competition so there is a bit of history being made at the start of 2017.
Both of these sides held a 4-4 record in the regular season but that counts for little with the tournament starting afresh at this stage. The main man for Murcia has been Facundo Campazzo and he has managed to grab an average of 14.3 points per game. The importance of Campazzo can also be seen in the fact that he is the second ranked player in the tournament for assists, with an average of 7.3 assists per game and he also leads the way on steals, with an average of 2.6 steals per game. Other key players for UCAM Murcia are Billy Baron, with an average of 12.5 points per game and Vitor Faverani, with an average of 11 points per game.

Montakit Fuenlabrada want success in Eurocup Top 16
The away side will be keen to stamp their mark on the game and in Marko Popovic, they have a player with great experience. Popovic has scored an average of 12.8 points per game this season but he is just 32 points away from becoming the top scorer in the history of the EuroCup. This is a target that Popovic should reach in this season’s Top 16, if he stays clear of injury, so there will be an added level of motivation for the player. Other key players for Fuenlabrada include Ivan Paunic, with an average of 11.1 points per game and Rolands Smits, with an average of 9.9 points per game.
Murcia score an average of 83.2 points per game while giving up an average of 83.9 points per game while Fuenlabrada score an average of 87 points per game while giving up an average of 86.9 points per game.
