Rayo Vallecano vs Espanyol: Predictions and Betting Tips
- Four wins and one draw for Rayo Vallecano in their last five home games
- Three consecutive games conceding at least one goal for Rayo Vallecano
- Seven consecutive away games without winning for Espanyol, three draws and four defeats
- Six consecutive away games conceding at least one goal for Espanyol
The high level shown in their matches is no longer a surprise at Rayo Vallecano. In their last match, at the Mestalla stadium and against Valencia, the Vallecas team managed a draw, although, given what we saw on the pitch, they could even have won the match.
But this matchday Rayo return to Vallecas, to their stadium, which is synonymous with winning points, as with seven home games they are the best team in this respect, with six wins and only one draw. With 16 goals scored and only three conceded, we can get an idea of how difficult it is for other teams to play at Vallecas.
Rayo Vallecano have won three games in a row against Espanyol, from 2020 to the present day.
After a valuable win against Real Sociedad last time out at the RCDE Stadium, Espanyol have to play away this matchday, where they always show their worst side, as they do not know what it is like to win away from Barcelona so far this season.
In seven away games, Espanyol have only managed three points from three draws and four defeats, making them the third worst away team so far. With five goals scored and ten conceded, their away games have an average of 2.14 total goals.
With Raul de Tomas in form, Espanyol are relying heavily on the player with Dominican roots to be more dangerous than they have been so far, which in turn evidences the poor performance of his teammates when they play away from the RCDE Stadium.
Rayo Vallecano vs Espanyol Predictions
With Rayo Vallecano being the best home team at the moment, without dropping their level and facing one of the worst away teams in La Liga Santander, we think Rayo have everything in their favour to win this match.
