08-02-2017 16:30 BST - Avtodor Saratov v EWE Baskets Oldenburg - Champions League Betting Tips

These two sides clash in Russia on Wednesday night in what is set to be a thrilling first leg tie of this qualifying stage. The hosts have found form in this New Year and it would be fair to say that the changing of the coach had a lot to do with their change in fortune. For a while it looked as though Avtodor would be heading out of the competition but a late rally sees them in the next stage and holding some confidence that they can continue throughout the tournament

Vladimir Antsiferov returned to the helm of the club and while his first game ended in a defeat, there was soon to be a turnaround. Three wins in a row, defeating Maccabi, Venezia and the group winners Le Mans Sarthe helped the Russians into a Playoff spot and fourth place in the group. It was quite a turnaround and one that was probably unexpected.

N Minnerath has been a key player all campaign for the hosts but he had a huge game against Le Mans Sarthe, grabbing 28 points and 7 rebounds. It led to Minnerath picking up the MVP of the Week for the second time in the campaign and with an average of 20.6 points over the season, it is clear that he is a player who has had a huge impact on his team’s fortunes.

EWE Baskets looking for a solid result in FIBA Champions League Playoff

The Germans had a 10-14 record in Group C of the FIBA Champions League and they will be gutted that this wasn’t deemed good enough to take them straight through to the next phase of the Play-Offs. This means the Oldenburg side may be feeling a little deflated heading into this game but there is no time to feel sorry for themselves.

EWE Baskets Oldenburg won 10 of their 14 games in Group C of the Basketball Champions League but it wasn’t enough to seal direct passage to the second phase of the Play-Offs. Brian Qvale has been a big player over the course of the season for the away side, providing an average of 12.9 points per game. If he can lead from the front again in this midweek, the Germans will think that they have a decent chance of making it through to the next stages of the tournament.
