Le Mans vs Anwil (By: Miyagi)
Last round of the main group stage in Basketball Champions League. The top 4 seeds will get a ticket for the next round, places 5 and 6 qualify for the inferior Europe cup.
The only team with motivation here is Le Mans as they need the win to secure the 4th place and qualify for the next round while Anwil on the other side has nothing to play for as they have already been eliminated. Le Mans is in much better shape than Anwil recently, they have won their last 5 home games by at least 14 points difference and they are looking to extend that streak today and secure their place in the next round.
Anwil has lost its last 5 CL games while the last time they won a CL game on the road was back in October against Ludwigsburg (85-93). They have the best away record in their domestic league but that is not something worth to be taken into account since there is a considerable difference between an average Polish team and an average French or CL side.
Anwil will miss their top scorer F Lishodey (13.3p) which makes their task a lot harder.
There is no room for errors for Le Mans, they have the quality, experience, motivation and home-court advantage in their favor and complacency should not be an issue here. I expect them to start very strong, take a decent early lead and get the job done today. The home win is a banker IMHO, I can't imagine how Anwil will spoil the day for Le Mans though I will take the extra risk with the double result and the much better odds.
