09/04/2015 19:45 – Unicaja Malaga v Laboral Kutxa Vitoria

Euroleague Top 16 Betting Tips - Unicaja Malaga v Laboral Kutxa VitoriaThe two teams have clashed three times so far this season, twice in the Spanish league and once in the Euroleague. Domestically, Unicaja is the top dog and they won the two Spanish league games but Laboral won the Top 16 game of Round 7 and they know that they have defeated Unicaja on four of the last 5 occasions the two sides have clashed in the Euroleague. There is also the fact that Laboral are undefeated in Malaga in the Euroleague, and they still have something to player for.

If Laboral can grab the win and Anadolu loses, they will be making their way into the playoffs, which has to be something worth playing for. Getting one over on a domestic rival in a European setting is always of value but when there is a chance to book your progress or block the progress of a rival, there is plenty at stake. This isn’t a meaningless end of group game, this is a game between two Spanish sides who will be keen to do some damage to their rival.
