Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Rayo Vallecano and Sevilla square off against each other at Campo de Futbol de Vallecas in what is expected to be an interesting La Liga game. Los Vallecanos aim to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Cadiz, with the team eyeing their first league triumph since December 18, 2021. The capital club are on a six-game losing run in the national championship, which is probably the main reason why home win should not be considered.
Esteban Saveljich, who limped off with injury at the weekend, is unlikely to feature against Sevilla, but fellow defender Alejandro Catena is back from suspension. Los Sevillanos, on the other hand, are eight points behind league leaders Real Madrid. Julen Lopetegui’s troops are eager to return to winning ways following a goalless draw with Alaves, and they should take advantage of Rayo’s poor form. The good news for the visitors is that Anthony Martial is closing in on a return.
