Rayo Vallecano vs Celta Vigo Match Preview
Rayo Vallecano’s form has taken a turn for the better recently and they are backed to gain a third consecutive victory when they host Celta Vigo.
Promoted back to the Primera Division last term after a two-season absence, the Madrid-based club have found life difficult in the first half of the campaign and have only Huesca behind them in the table.
But there are signs that Rayo may be able to climb out of trouble because they have won their last two matches narrowly against Levante and Real Valladolid, and they do not have the scariest set of fixtures from now right through until February.
That includes hosting Celta Vigo, who are not having a great season themselves for they are conceding too many goals and are towards the back of a congested pack separated by only five points between sixth and 15th positions.
There is still plenty of time for the Sky Blues to challenge for a place in Europe, but losing at home to Athletic Bilbao on Monday was a disappointing setback for Miguel Cardoso’s side.
With Rayo Vallecano back among the goals after a fruitless spell in the lead-up to Christmas, they are fancied to give their prospects of avoiding a quick return to the Segunda Division another significant boost.
