Football Bet of the Day: Visitors Racing towards disaster

Spanish football fans
We're having a Spanish Saturday

"Mirandes are chasing a fourth straight competitive win, while Racing Santander haven't won an away game all season."

Back Mirandes to win at 1.8810/11

After picking up a fourth winner this week, Kev's checking in with a big club that's fallen on hard times in Spain.

Struggling visitors to slip again

Mirandes v Racing Santander
Saturday 04 January, 19:00

We had the right to feel like Greek gods last night, as our Over 2.5 Goals bet landed with room to spare thanks to Panachaiki's 2-2 draw with Platanias.

We hope to enhance a strong week with a winner from the second tier of Spanish football. Relegation-threatened Racing Santander are visiting Mirandes, and I suspect their situation will worsen.

Racing have had quite the rollercoaster in recent times. As recently as 2012 they were a top-tier side, but they suffered back-to-back relegations. Although they bounced back to the Segunda Division in 2014, they then dropped again the following season.

Last term they won promotion from the third division, but they find themselves struggling to adapt to life in the second tier. They are in the dropzone, and have won just one of their last 15 league games. On the road, they have lost three of their last four league games, and they are still seeking their first away win.

Mirandes are in mid-table, and are chasing a fourth straight competitive win. At home, they have won three of their last four games. They have recently beaten some big names, like Las Palmas, Huesca and Girona.

Mirandes have the momentum, and I'll back them to win here at 1.8810/11.
