Our match prediction:
A relegation six-pointer is scheduled for Saturday afternoon at Campo de Fútbol de Vallecas. A surprising triumph against Celta de Vigo ended Rayo’s ten-game winless streak in all competitions, but they are up for a tough battle in order to avoid relegation to Segunda. A win in the upcoming fixture against los Amarillos would see them leapfrog their opponents in the overall standings and, possibly, get out of the red zone, at least for a while. Quique Setien’s side are still waiting for a victory on their travels this term, they are the worst team in the league when it comes to away matches and we do not expect them to start producing now, especially given the fact that Las Palmas won just one of their previous five games against Paco Jémez’s charges. Rayo Vallecano secured most of their points on home ground this term, and we believe that this game is a perfect opportunity for them to record a much needed triumph.
