On the other hand, Villarreal also have solid away record with 5 wins, 6 draws and 4 defeat with 15-16 goal difference. The team have one of the best defensive lines in the league, allowing only 26 goals. The team gained solid conditions, taking 4 wins and 1 draw (against Barcelona). Villarreal can count on almost all their key players while Rayo will start without their key defender, defensive half and one of the best scorers and that gives the visiting team slight advantage.
The visitors have advantage in the head-to-head. The teams met 13 time in 21st century with 13 wins of Villarreal, 2 draws and two triumphs of Rayo Vallecano. The Yellow Submarine won 4 out of last 6 visits to this stadium. Moreover, only ones in these 6 matches Villarreal failed to win at least one of the halves. The visitors are in better conditions and have solid defensive line so they should be closer to a victory.
Prediction for the match: Villarreal to win at least one of the halves.
