A surprise result in Santander on Thursday night, where Racing were beaten 0-4 by a Sevilla side inspired once again by Reyes and also by Baptista, returning to the starting line up after an injury. The Cantabrians started the day in sixth place after the results the day before, heading a group of seven sides on twenty points. However they found themselves behind early on when Baptista beat Ricardo with a well struck free kick, and Darío Silva made it two midway through the first half from Martí's pass.

Racing tried to come back, but Bodipo, Benayoun, Morán and Regueiro all failed to find the target. And on the stroke of half time Martí swathed through the defence and set up Baptista for his second goal of the night. With their hosts in disarray Sevilla came out quickly after the break, and Reyes made it four before they had time to settle. And although substitute Moratón headed against the bar following a late corner, there was nothing Racing could do. Once again they had failed in the Sardinero, where they have only picked up six points all season, and if it was not for their away form they would be well down the table by now.
