Rayo Vallecano vs Villarreal Match Preview
Villarreal travel to Madrid for their Copa del Rey clash at Rayo Vallecano in a great mood after snatching all three points at Deportivo Alaves (1-2) with a very late winner from Fernando Nino and connecting their seventh win in eight outings on Saturday afternoon.
Yellow Submarine have been scoring on the regular and capitalized on such a goalscoring form, led by in-form Santi Cazorla but seeing goals from all directions lately. They beat Comillas (0-5), Real Sociedad (1-2), Orihuela (1-2), and Girona (0-3) on four trips beforehand and will now be very motivated to keep it up.
Rayo Vallecano will be no sitting ducks, though, and certainly promise a great challenge at Estadio de Vallecas after beating Betis (on penalties after a 2-2 draw) here last week. They’ve seen a nine-match unbeaten streak since early December and Paco Jemez has ground to build on as well.
Red Sashes have last seen a home loss back in November when Real Zaragoza (0-1) snatched all three points but now seem to be in a better place, despite a mid-table spot in Segunda. The 1-1 draw against Extremadura over the weekend could mean a dent in their confidence, though, as they took the lead early in the second half but conceded an equalizer with minutes left on the clock.
We will now back Villarreal to turn an exciting clash their way as we think they have what it takes to outgun the rivals at this point. We’ll thus go for an Away win, which seems like great value at 23/20 with William Hill.
We should be in for thrills and Rayo Vallecano should be able to have a say in it. With that in mind, we’re also going for goals and backing Over 2.5 Goals FT at 9/10 with bet365 – which would be the sixth such occasion for Villarreal in a row.
