Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Rayo Vallecano play host to Levante at their Campo de Futbol de Vallecas on the last day of the season. Los Vallecanos failed to win the previous four league fixtures, and the lack of motivation seems to be the team’s main problem at the moment. Anyhow, the capital club will give 100% to finish the season in style. Both Santi Comesana and Unai Lopez are back from suspensions, while Isi Piazon and Martin Merquelanz remain in the recovery room.
Los Levantinos, on the other hand, failed to secure the La Liga survival. Since the visitors are low on spirits ahead of the trip to Madrid, we are tempted to put our money on Rayo, who are a real force to be reckoned with at home. Both Jorge de Frutos and Carlos Clerc are rated doubtful for Friday’s clash, speaking of the away side.
