Bookings Tips | Valencia v Rapid Vienna | 18th February 2016 | BT Sport 2


CARD KING Gavin Murphy (@GamePlanGavin) has spied a spot of value in Valencia’s Europa League contest with Rapid Vienna.

Valencia v Rapid Vienna | Thursday 20.05 | BT Sport 2

Valencia coach Gary Neville will hope to have something to celebrate on his 41st birthday as his Los Che side take on Rapid Vienna in the first leg of their Europa League tie.

The hosts averaged 3.33 cards-per-game in their Champions League campaign. Meanwhile, Rapid collected a measly seven cards in six Europa League games (average 1.17 cards-per-game) – that suggests a total of 4.5 cards could be expected here.

However, referee Czech Miroslav Zelinka has some amazing stats. In five Europa League group and qualifying games this season he has dished out 34 cards at an average of 6.80 per-game.

Zelinka has refereed Valencia once before and gave them a yellow and a red on that occasion.

Given that this referee has gone over tonight's line in 5/5 of his Europa League outings this season, I'm backing Over 4.5 Cards on the Asian line at 1.90 with Bet365.
