Mata 6/4 to score for Chelsea vs Valencia in Champions League
JUAN MATA is 6/4 to score for Chelsea against former club Valencia in the Champions League, according to Ladbrokes.
The Spanish international will return to face his recent employers in Group E of the Champions League.
Barcelona remain the 13/8 favourites but the bookies have shortened up Man United (now 11/2 from 6/1), with the Old Trafford team securing a seemingly straightforward group.
Arsenal have been pushed out to 25/1 (from 22s) after being drawn in a tricky looking Group F alongside Olympiakos, Borussia Dortmund and Marseille.
David Williams of Ladbrokes said: “United won’t have any complaints and shouldn’t have any problems but Arsene Wenger might not be so chuffed.
“The return of Juan Mata to Valencia will be a blockbuster match. He’d love nothing more than to remind the Spanish precisely what they’ve lost.”
