16/03/2016 16:45 – Nizhny Novgorod v Strasbourg – Betting Tips
This may be the quarter-final tie that gets less publicity or focus than the other games, but there is still a lot to be said for taking a look at what is on offer in Russia this week. The hosts have been one of the better teams in the campaign so far and their performance at home in the last round will certainly give Strasbourg something to worry about.
Yes, the 102-76 win over Zenit in the previous round caught the eye and gave Nizhny a massive boost going into the second leg. A similar scoreline in this game would see them heading to France in confidence and in all likelihood, heading to the semi-final. There are some decent statistics backing Nizhny for this one and the team is strong behind the arc and they are the fourth ranked team with respect to scoring, averaging 84.8 points. Fans shouldn’t expect another demolition job in this round but Nizhny fans should definitely feel confident about this game.

Strasbourg have been strong on the road
The French side know that Nizhny have the power and players to blow people away but there is absolutely nothing for Strasbourg to fear. The French side have been in great form away from home and they have averaged 84.3 points per game on the road. This placed them second best with respect to the teams left in the tournament, so there is no denying that there is plenty on offer from both teams heading into this game. One thing that may play on Strasbourg is the fact that they hold a 1-6 record in Russia. The current team is doing okay on the road, having grabbed 3 wins out of 4, but sometimes history can grab a hold of you!
