Two teams aiming to start moving up the standings meet as LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne (2-7) hosts FC Bayern Munich (3-6) in the first EuroLeague game at the brand new LDLC Arena.
ASVEL takes on Bayern in first game at brand-new LDLC Arena
ASVEL has not won at home all season, while Bayern has lost four straight on the road. Nando De Colo is just 2 assists short of reaching 1,000 for his EuroLeague career, and the ASVEL veteran will look to control his backcourt battle with the dynamic Leandro Bolmaro, who has posted double digits in scoring in three of the last four games. Led by Serge Ibaka (6.1 rpg.), Bayern is the top rebounding team in the competition with 38.8 per game, but that will be threatened by ASVEL giant Youssoupha Fall, who has claimed at least 2 offensive rebounds in each of the last five games.
