Match: FC BATE Borisov v Valencia
Betpal Bet: FC BATE Borisov +0.5 Asian Handicap
Best Odds: 1.85 at Pinnacle
FC BATE Borisov are still being widely written off by most layers, despite making a perfect start to their Champions League Group campaign. They defeated Lille in France before seeing off German giants Bayern Munich last time out, and have maximum point so far. Odds about an away win look a little short, particularly if the Valencia away record is put under scrutiny. In all competitions, Valencia have recorded a draw and four defeats from their five games on the road this season. That form is backed up by last year’s trends, when they won just eight of thirty away games. In Europe during 2011/12, their record from seven road games reads W1 D2 L4. With such a mediocre return, a price of a shade over evens for a Spanish win looks way too small. The Belarus club have not played since toppling Bayern and will be chomping at the bit to back that performance up. It is worth keeping the draw onside however, as a point would not be a bad result for either side given the tight nature of the group.
