Rayo Vallecano vs Leganes Prediction & Betting tips
The tension is on Monday evening to cut, when number eighteen Rayo Vallecano takes it in his own Vallecas against number seventeen Leganes. The winner of this Madrilenian cellar cracker keeps the degradation ghost out of the door for the time being, while the loser sinks further into the swamp of the danger zone.
With eighteenth place Rayo Vallecano is still on the wrong side of the relegation streak, but the fans of the PhD student are confident that their favorite club will survive in La Liga. That has everything to do with the excellent shape of the last weeks. Rayo Vallecano was able to win no less than four of her last five league matches. Last week, the Madrid players won 0-1 at Alaves, which ended an unbeaten home series after nine months. Trainer Michel was obviously proud of his team, but he did his best to dampen the euphoria: ‘There are still enough aspects that we need to improve. The results are good, but it’s about where you stand at the end of the season. ‘
The road to life retention is indeed long, but this Rayo Vallecano is well constructed. The rearguard remains a concern, but everyone battles for every ball. In addition, the Madrilenians with Raul de Tomas have one of the best strikers of the right-hand row. RDT was already nine times accurate this season and is therefore a major candidate to win the Trofeo Zarra, the prize for most scoring Spaniard in La Liga. For the time being, the Real Madrid mercenary only has to tolerate Iago Aspas (ten goals).
Leganes knew last season to survive fairly easily in La Liga, but this year the people of Madrid have a lot of trouble to keep their heads above water. This is largely due to the fact that the competition also has a relatively large number of points. Last season you had thirty points enough for life retention, but you are not going to save it this year. Spanish clubs usually dare to breathe a sigh of relief only forty points, although I would not be surprised if even that number will not be sufficient this season. In any case, Leganes still has a lot to do in the remaining seventeen rounds of play.
Nevertheless, I think that Leganes will save it again this season. Los Pepineros know the blows of the whip and have strengthened themselves during the winter transfer period. Trainer Mauricio Pellegrino, for example, was invited to welcome the Diego Reyes basket this week. The Mexican international did not come out well at Fenerbahce, but is of course an absolute winner for every Spanish low flyer. The rearguard is in any case the showpiece of the blue-whites, which with only 26 counter-hits have the least passed rearguard of the right-hand row.
