La Liga Team Of The Week – Week 9
Alright, we are back again for another Team Of The Week and I’m a bit late cause I got caught up in the U.S. Presidential Election. Hopefuly, a nation’s fortunes has changed with the outcome of the election. Same could be applied to the La Liga Team Of The Week. The TOW that played matches and/or made headlines during the week of Oct. 27 - Nov. 2.
Real Racing Club de Santander
The team from the northern autonomous community of Cantabria killed 2 birds with one stone in their 4-2 road victory over 1st place Valencia. The first bird that fell was Valencia’s unbeaten record and the second was Racing’s relegation place. Racing sealed the win with a hat trick from Burundi born and future Belgian international striker Mohammed Tchité.
The 3 points elevated Racing out of relegation and knocked Los Che from 1st place and from the ranks of the unbeaten. Villarreal is now the only unbeaten team in La Liga. To go on the road and beat an unbeaten 1st place team when you are struggling with relegation this early in the season is a fine result. This victory could be result that changes the Racinguistas season for the better. So give it up to Real Racing Club de Santander for their 4-2 win at the Mestalla to become the La Liga Team Of The Week.
