Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Deportivo La Coruna and Rayo Vallecano, the two old rivals, face each other at Estadio Abanca-Riazor in a highly-anticipated clash. The Galicians restarted the season with back-to-back draws against Sporting Gijon and Real Oviedo, with the team remaining in the relegation zone. Deportivo La Coruna aim to put an end to their six-game winless run in the Segunda Division, but keep in mind that they will be without the support of their loyal fans in Saturday’s football match.
Rayo Vallecano, on the other hand, defeated Fuenlabrada thanks to Mario Suarez’s goal from the penalty spot. Los Vallecanos aim to climb to the playoffs berth, and we predict that they will take advantage of the fact that Deportivo struggle when playing behind closed doors. When the two teams met in the suburbs of Madrid Rayo Vallecano defeated Deportivo La Coruna 3-1, which is yet another reason why away win should be considered.
