Racing past Valencia?
In Spain this weekend, Racing Santander (21/10) host Valencia (evens) in a tie that often throws up unexpected results.
Take for example the game in Valencia last season in which the much fancied Los Che, who at the time were riding high in La Liga, went down 4-2 (100/1) with the unheralded Mohamed Tchite proving the thorn in Valencia's side with an expertly taken hat-trick.
In the return fixture a solitary goal from Mata was enough to give Valencia the win in a bad tempered game in Santander (4/5 Over 55 Booking Points).
Given the topsy-turvy nature of these games and despite the red hot form of David Villa, a draw (23/10) is also surely worth consideration. Especially when you consider Racing drew their last game and Valencia have twice turned wins into draws with poor defending in the last five minutes recently.
Given that, some could consider backing over 139 total goal minutes (19/20).
