Our match prediction:
Ten-man Granada were on the verge of beating Espanyol on Monday evening, but Miguel Lopes eventually scored an own goal and helped los Periquitos pick up one point from the match. Los Granadinos remained in the relegation zone and they will be looking to move away from the bottom three with a victory over out-of-form Rayo Vallecano. The capital club failed to impress in a 1-1 draw with Eibar on Sunday and it has to be noted that los Armeros missed several clear-cut chances to score in the second half of the match. Los Vallecanos do not seem to be at the top of their game at the moment, they have been struggling at the back in the second half of the season and given their poor away record, we predict that the relegation-threatened hosts will pick up all three points from Saturday’s football game.
