Real Madrid vs Rayo Vallecano: Predictions and Betting Tips
- Madrid’s last two home games in Liga Santander ended 0-0.
- Five consecutive games scoring less than three goals for Real Madrid in Liga Santander
- One win, one draw, and three defeats for Rayo in their last five away games
- Two consecutive games without conceding goals for Rayo
Despite being at the top of the table, Real Madrid’s last few games have not been their best, with a more stagnant and flatter game compared to the first few games of the season.
Madrid is the highest scoring team of the season, with 26 goals in 11 games. Their matches average 3.5 total goals per game, a very high goal average.
Madrid have four wins for one defeat in their last five meetings against Rayo, one of the victories being a 10-2 win in the 2015-2016 season.
Rayo Vallecano have not lost faith and remain in sixth place, in one of the European qualifying positions, with 20 points, just four points behind Madrid, although they have played one more game than their rivals.
The one downside for Rayo coming into this game is that only four of their 20 total points have come with them as the away team. As an away team they have one win, one draw and four defeats.
Rayo stand out for their high-pressure style, something that can go either very well or very badly against a team that lives off counter-attacks like Real Madrid.
Real Madrid vs Rayo Vallecano Predictions
We think it will be a game of many chances for Real Madrid, as Rayo have a very attacking style, which helps to create more space to run with the ball for Madrid. Also, Rayo are a very inconsistent away team, and, against a team like Madrid, we think they will be punished, likely not getting a point out of this game.
