The second leg of the regular season starts with the first possibility for a team to qualify mathematically to the Top 16. On Thursday at 20:45 CET, FC Bayern München meet Fenerbahce Ulker. These two teams have met three times in the past and the Turkish side have triumphed in every one of them. However, the German side are in great form and they know that they need to win their home games to have any real chance of making it through to the Top 16. With this game and a home tie with Real Madrid left for Bayern, this is a game that has a lot riding on it!
Taking a cold look at the statistics, Bayern are not that far away from Fenerbahce but when you take on board the fact that the team from Istanbul is sitting with a 4-1 record, they clearly know how to kill teams off! Also, the significant difference between Fenerbahce and Bayern is the fact that the Turkish team makes better use of their possession. However, there is a very strong chance that Bayern will be celebrating long into the night! So far, the Turkish team are the slight favourites for this game with a 1.60 odds; Tipbet also offers a 2.35 odds for the Bayern’s victory! These great odds are likely to give you a good interest in this game!
In addition, on Friday at 20:00 CET, Brose Baskets Bamberg compete against Unicaja Malaga. At the moment, Malaga is the sole unbeaten team left in the competition. Knowing that a win would make it the first team in the Top 16, undefeated Unicaja Malaga (5-0) hits the road to face the on-the-rise Brose Baskets Bamberg (3-2)! The hosts must find a way to limit the visitor’s league-leading averages in assists (22.2) and offensive rebounds (13.8), numbers that are higher when it plays on the road!
