Rayo Vallecano have been the most entertaining Primera team to watch in recent years. The team score a lot of goals and allow even more. Today’s visitors have 8 wins, 11 draws and 16 defeats in 35 La Liga matches with 48-69 goal difference and sit on the 16th place in the league standings. Paco Jemez’s men are only 3 points above the relegation zone and their still need points to secure the place in top division for the next season. Rayo Vallecano show poor results on the road, taking only 10 points in 17 matches with 22-41 goal difference. They took only 1 victory on the road this season at Las Palmas in September, 17 away matches ago that include 7 draws and 10 defeats.
Of course, today’s hosts have advantage in the head-to-head record between the team. The teams met 3 times this season, the reverse league match ended with 2-0 victory of today’s hosts. The Copa del Rey matches ended with 1-1 draw at Vallecano and 3-0 win of Los Colchoneros in Madrid. We expect Simeone’s men to have no troubles beating the visitors confidently in this match.
Prediction for the match: Atletico Madrid to win with -1.0 Asian handicap.
