Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Rayo Vallecano will be looking to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Mallorca when they host Sabadell at their Campo de Futbol de Vallecas. Los Vallecanos kicked off the new season in style, but they need to keep on improving their game if they are to return to La Liga. The capital club are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but keep in mind that there will be no spectators in Saturday’s football match due to the fierce of coronavirus spread.
Sabadell, on the other hand, were not in action at the weekend. The visitors aim to get off to a flying start to the new season, but given Rayo’s display in the triumph over Mallorca, we predict that Antonio Hidalgo’s men are going to return home empty-handed. Summer signing Gorka Guruteza is widely expected to make his Segunda Division debut with Sabadell against Rayo.
