Rayo Vallecano vs Betis Prediction & Betting tips
Rayo Vallecano and Real Betis face each other in the Vallecas in Madrid on Sunday afternoon. The home club must win to keep its chance of preservation alive, while visitors still dream of European football.
Ten more rounds of games, that is how much time Ray-Vallecano has to leave the club to save the game and avoid relegation. The Madrilenians need a little miracle, because the deficit in the safe seventeenth place is six points.
To achieve that miracle, Rayo Vallecano has appointed old well-known Paco Jemez as the new coach. Between 2012 and 2016 he also worked as a coach in the Vallecas. For the neutral spectators, the appointment of Jemez is in any case positive, because during his previous period with the red and white he ensured a lot of spectacle with his offensive playing style. Again, the coach does not seem to have abandoned his ideas, because he has immediately thrown the system over with three central defenders of predecessor Michel. So there are again goals on the menu in the Vallecas.
There is also a lot at stake for Real Betis in the remaining ten league matches. The Andalusians have to rise two places in the ranking to be assured of participating in the Europa League next season.
The problem, however, is that Real Betis is performing too volatile this season, a team with European aspirations cannot really lose eleven of its 28 league matches. The team of coach Quique Setien always tries to play dominant football, but often does not do enough with her dominance. The green and white are often extremely vulnerable in the switchover, partly because the backs function more like refined wing tips. With 36 goals, Real Betis has the worst rear of the Spanish left row.
