    • 43' Mathieu's booked for a late sliding challenge on Arana.

    • 29' Racing look to counter but Valencia get back in numbers and crowd out their opponents.
    • 28' Valencia win a corner but Feghouli commits a foul to hand the hosts a free-kick and the chance to clear.

    • 25' Valencia are, along with Barcelona, the only side not to have lost by more than a single goal in the league this season - but they're lucky to only be one behind at the moment.

    • 14' Racing lost their last La Liga outing 2-1 to Getafe but were previously unbeaten in five league games.
    • 13' Racing enjoy a good spell of possession but that ends when Arana overhits his attempted through ball.
    • 11' Racing have won none of their last six league games against Valencia (D2 L4). Can the hosts end that run of form?
    • 10' Costa whips across an inswinging corner which Tono confidently punches clear.
    • 9' Racing clear their lines but Valencia are beginning to assert themselves on this game and win another corner.
