Sevilla vs Rayo Vallecano Match Preview
Sevilla host Rayo Vallecano for their Matchday 34 clash on Thursday evening in search of a return to the winning ways after a troubled trip to Getafe and a 3-0 loss at Coliseum Alfonso Perez, where they dropped important points and the top 4 spot to the Madrid rivals.
Sevillistas have thus seen their three-match winning streak ended and Joaquin Caparros will now be desperate to lift their spirits, replicating a display more similar to wins over Alaves (2-0), Real Valladolid (0-2), and Betis (3-2) seen beforehand. They have been scoring more goals here and we do expect them motivated to recuperate quickly.
Rayo Vallecano seem like a perfect target too despite picking it up lately, where we’ve seen them beat Valencia (2-0), suffer a tough 3-2 loss at Athletic Bilbao, and share the spoils in a goalless draw against Huesca since early April.
Los Franjirrojos have, indeed, seen nothing but losses on the road since February. They’ve been scoring goals away too and there’s no denying attacking line led by Real Madrid’s loanee Raul de Tomas performed, but six consecutive losses on the road will hardly be a confidence booster ahead of the trip to Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
We will now back Sevilla to capitalize on such woes on the rivals’ end and bag the important points in a chase to rejoin the top 4, as we go for a Home win and a Yes on Both teams to score at 7/5 with bet365.
With that in mind, it’s easy to make a case for another high-scoring contest at this ground, which also has us going for Over 3.5 Goals FT at Evens with William Hill. We’ve seen four or more goals in three of Rayo’s last four trips as well as four of Sevilla’s respective last seven at this ground.
