Racing Santander vs Logrones
Spanish Copa del Rey
Date: Wednesday, 17 October 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Campos de Sport de El Sardiniero (Santander).
Racing Santander continued the splendid run of form on Saturday when they bagged four past Langreo in the eighth round of Segunda B Division. Jon Ander, Jordi Figueras, Berto Cayarga and Cejudo were all on the scoreline in a demolishing victory which kept Los Racinguistas three points clear at the very top of the standings.
Ivan Ania’s men thus made it four wins on the spin and they will head into the third round of Copa del Rey tie against divisional rivals Logrones high on confidence. Racing saw off the likes of Mirandes and UCAM Murcia so far en route to the third round of the competition without conceding a single goal in the process. They’ve been very tough to break down in the league so far as well allowing just four goals in eight outings in the third tier of the Spanish football.
Racing Santander vs Logrones: Head-to-head
Teams have two wins, draws and losses apiece coming into their seventh head to head encounter this Wednesday.
Both sides took narrow 2-1 wins in front of the home crowd in the previous term of Segunda B Division.
Both teams were on target in four of last five head to head affairs.
Racing Santander vs Logrones: Prediction
The visitors will also enter the game in high spirits following a streak of two wins and a draw in last three league contests. They’ve kept their net untouched along the way. It will be very interesting to see how UDL’s defense will react to Racing’s red-hot attacking line on the evening.
Logrones, however, found it troubling to find goals on travels so far in the season. They did not score at all in any of last three away fixtures in the division. Moving forward, they needed a penalty-shootout victory to dispatch FC Cartagena in the previous round of Copa del Rey.
Given Racing also won two of three home games against Logrones, we have to go for the home victory as a banker bet at 1.50 odds.
