Bursaspor welcomed Venezia in round 16 of the Eurocup. The two teams are only one game away in the standings with Venezia is third (8-7) and the Turks eighth (7-8), reflecting the great balance that governs group A. The trip to Bursa will be essential to stay in close contact with the leaders in the standings. Venezia is already qualified, but in the running to try to earn the right to play the first round of the playoffs at home (which belongs to the first 4). They arrived in Turkey without Marco Spissu (10 points,2.4 rebounds, 4.4 assists) and Andrea De Nicolao (2.9 points,1 rebounds, 2.2 assists), with really bad stats away from Italy with only 2 wins in 7 matches, counting 4 defeats in a row. Bursaspor are the finalists of the last edition of the competition. They are always very aggressive in front of their supporters, winning 5 from 7 matches. Their squad is full with quality players like Needham, Bitim, Clemmons and recent signing Dawkins. Under the basket, the athleticism of the dynamic center Auguste and the versatility and competitive spirit of Dudzinski are the greatest dangers. At home, they are super strong with 9 wins in the last 11 games in all competitions, and I think that they are capable of winning the match and covering this line.
