Espanyol vs Rayo Vallecano Prediction & Analysis
Rayo Vallecano Double Chance
Just as we predicted, Rayo Vallecano managed to frustrate Barcelona at Camp Nou last week and the draw they eventually secured was their just reward for some exceptional defending. Rayo continue their mini-tour of Catalonia on Friday against an Espanyol outfit they beat both home and away last term, where they could put more points on the board. As they proved against Barca, Vallecano are an incredibly tough to nut crack and they seem under priced in the double chance market again here.
Under 2.5 Goals
Rayo Vallecano are unashamedly focused on defence and their backline looked rock-solid when it kept a clean sheet against Barcelona on the opening weekend of the new La Liga campaign. Last season, Rayo shut out Espanyol in both of the teams’ meetings, with the final scoreline finishing 1-0 in Vallecano’s favour on both occasions. Margins could be wafter-thin again this week and bettors would be smart to consider another stake on under 2.5 goals.
