Rayo Vallecano vs Atletico Madrid Match Preview

Atletico Madrid have seen their 19-match unbeaten streak ended by Real Betis (1-0) and they’ve had a hard time bouncing back to it as they hosted Real Madrid (1-3), now travelling to Estadio de Vallecas in hope they can do more.

Atleti have been very solid defensively and Diego Simeone’s men will surely want to keep it up once again, which promises a rock-solid challenge across the city. They’ve bagged seven wins and two draws in last nine head-to-head clashes and beating the struggling rivals will be crucial at this point.

Rayo Vallecano sit in the relegation zone after 23 games played and they’ve seen losses to Leganes (1-2) and Espanyol (2-1) in their last two outings, despite finding the net on both occasions. Michel’s men have proven a tough nut to crack at this ground and will want to base an escape from the red zone on such performances.

However, Rayo could have a hard time doing so against Atletico, especially amid such a streak. They’ve struggled against the big guns and while we expect them very motivated, few believe the home side have what it takes to secure any points on Saturday afternoon.

We will thus back the visitors to snatch all three points and doing so at 3/4 with Unibet now feels like buying money for old rope, despite Atleti’s struggles to regain consistency with a tough schedule over the past couple of weeks.

Still, we expect a narrow occasion in the making and with that in mind, we’ll now also back Under 2.5 Goals FT at 13/20 with FansBet. We’ve seen Atleti base their success on turning such clashes their way and we now hope for more of the same, as they desperately need a pick-me-up ahead of the Champions League clash against Juventus.
