Trade of the week: Chelsea v Valencia correct score 2:0, 2:1
Place 1.5 units on 2:0 @ 10.0 and 1.5 units on 2:1 @ 10.0. Place 1 unit on 'any unquoted' @ 9.0. Trade out on 70 minutes if 2:0 or 2:1 or if either scoreline is hit between minute 70-80. Trade out for approximately scratch on 80 mins if 1:0 or 1:1. If Chelsea score 3 goals before 70 minutes, trade out on the 'any unquoted' when the market settles to cover your liability. Option: If 1-1 at any stage and Valencia are looking dangerous, place 1 unit on them in the 'next goal' market for insurance.
Update: Following the trading plan would have seen a profit of 5-6 units however with the game taking on a different pattern to what I expected, I advised on Twitter to exit at half time (2:0) for a 3unit profit as this was the best play longterm. Result: +3units

Potential Game Pattern / lineups
Jonas and Soldado will return for valencia after being rested on Saturday. Chelsea may choose to stick with Didier Drogba Drogba up top with Fernando Torres still on the bench. Expect Emery to be ultra defensive as Valencia only need to avoid defeat to qualify. He will flood the pitch with defensive minded players, leaving Soldado to play a lone strikers role. Chelsea are likely to dominate possession and may struggle to break Valencia down in the early stages.
