Valladolid vs Rayo Vallecano Prediction & Betting tips
In the previous one, there is no clear favorite on this occasion, since both teams are competitive and offensive by nature. For that reason and knowing that both played a great campaign in the past Liga2, we believe that the game will be open and with spaces from the initial stage. Given this reality, we believe that the bet “both teams score” is interesting to bet. Remember that the field factor could help the local, balancing the balance against a rival who knows how to stand playing away from home.
After fulfilling a good campaign in the past Liga2, the team achieved the desired promotion to the first division. Of course, he got it via playoffs, after placing in fifth place in the competition (67 units thanks to 19 wins, 10 parities and 13 losses in total). In that stage, he liquidated without mercy Sporting de Gijón and Numancia respectively (triumphs 5-1 and 4-1 in the overall of both keys). Now the goal of the squad is to adapt to the level of the Santander League and add some points in their first official presentations. Therefore, it should not surprise us that his tactical approach is a bit more conservative. Anyway, we trust that you risk in this game of preparation, since it will clash with a rival of the same level.
If friendlies are involved, Valladolid has played 4 so far, achieving the following results: Victory 1-4 against Atlético Tordesillas, 0-1 win against Almería, 0-0 draw with Málaga and 1-1 equality against Deportivo La Coruña. After these matches he played a triangular with Alavés and Oviedo last Saturday. Of course, these games were only 45 ‘minutes of play. Both games could not win, after losing 0-1 with the “blue and white” and draw 0-0 against the “blue”. If we analyze all these results, we can conclude that the team was competitive against rivals of a similar level. What it should improve is its offensive effectiveness, since at the moment it is defending well.
After winning the Liga2 and returning to the first division, the “rojiblanco” team will seek to carry out a good campaign and ensure permanence for one more season. To achieve this task, the leadership decided to keep coach Michel, who did a great job from the tactical point of view. Some reinforcements have arrived for the squad, highlighting the arrival of Peruvian side Luis Advincula (holder with his team at the 2018 World Cup in Russia). If the players are involved, the template is well structured and consists of Alberto, Morro, Abdoulaye Ba, Tito, Gorka, Javi Rubio, Dorado, Velázquez, Martín, Álex Moreno, Akieme, Embarba, Trejo, Pozo, Santi, Lass , Kakuta, Jonathan Montiel, Javi Guerra and Sergio Moreno.
Continuing with the analysis you should know that Rayo Vallecano was known to be a dapper and offensive set in the second division, his goal being to repeat this proposal in the Santander League that is coming. In terms of friendlies, the team played three in recent weeks, achieving the following results: Win 1-0 against English Bristol City, victory 0-3 against Real Madrid B and 1-1 draw against Belenenses Portuguese. If we review these matches, we can conclude that the team is just starting out from the football, having to play more games to get the best way to its league debut. In any case, he only gave up one goal on his fence and was lethal when he faced a lower level opponent (Real Madrid branch).
In the last 2 years, both teams have met 5 times in different contexts. These were the results of those matches: Draw 0-0 in August 2016 by Liga2, win 2-1 of Valladolid in January 2017 for Liga2, draw 1-1 in August of 2017 under the framework of a friendly, victory 4-1 by Rayo Vallecano in October 2017 at home by Liga2 and 1-1 draw in March 2018 by Liga2. If we review these meetings we can conclude that all have been fought, except one. Therefore, it should not surprise us that both teams can score a goal in favor.
