Rayo Vallecano vs Girona Match Preview
Girona travel to Madrid for their Matchday 26 La Liga clash at Rayo Vallecano after picking it up with a 1-2 win at Real Madrid and a goalless draw against Sociedad, having escaped from the immediate danger zone and now hoping to build towards the mid-table with important points at Estadio de Vallecas.
Gironistes have been scoring goals away from home on the regular but struggled to capitalize, only ending a streak of three losses on their last trip to Madrid. Eusebio Sacristan will now want more of the same in what could prove a vital bottom-of-the-table clash, looking to connect a double over the rivals this term.
Rayo Vallecano have struggled this month and come into the contest looking for a return to the winning ways after four losses in a row, where they saw Leganes (1-2), Espanyol (2-1), Atletico Madrid (0-1), and Getafe (2-1) all snatch the points despite narrow occasions.
Los Franjirrojos now sit in the relegation zone but with just a two-point gap to the 17th placed Celta Vigo, we’ll surely see them just as motivated for the points here. They’ve been a very tough nut to crack at this ground and bouncing back to such a streak will be an essential task for Michel and his men.
However, the clash hardly comes at the best time possible for them and we’ll now stick our necks out for Girona to snatch a point in an exciting Draw, which comes at 11/5 with bet365 and looks more than just a lively longshot at the moment.
We do feel we’re in for goals on Friday evening, though, and the visitors should have to cope in the final third to do so! We’ll thus also go for a Yes on Both teams to score at 4/5 with Sportingbet, which could as well prove the best way to approach the fixture here.
