Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
All eyes will be on Estadio de Vallecas when Rayo Vallecano and Fuenlabrada face each other in a highly-anticipated clash. Both sides are eyeing a place in Segunda Division playoffs, meaning that a lively contest is on the cards. Rayo Vallecano restarted the season with a 1-1 draw with Cadiz, but it has to be noted that they failed to turn their dominance into victory.
Talented midfielder Jonathan Montiel, who was sent off in the draw with Cadiz, misses the Fuenlabrada game through suspension. Jose Ramon Sandoval’s troops proved their worth in a hard-fought 1-0 win over Tenerife, and, no doubt, they are high on confidence ahead of the trip to Madrid. The two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment, and we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. January signing Gassama, who opened his goal-scoring account at the weekend, will be one of the men to watch in the away team.
