  • Rayo Vallecano have only won one of their nine away matches in La Liga
  • Atletico are unbeaten in the last ten games between the two sides

Atletico to return to form?

Defeat to Granada before Christmas means that Atletico Madrid have lost three games in a row for the first time since February 2014, but this could be the perfect fixture they need to return to form.

Diego Simeone’s side have only been beaten once at the Wanda in La Liga this season, with each of those three recent reversals coming on the road.

They have kept five clean sheets in eight home outings, scoring in all bar one of those games, and you would back them to net against a Rayo Vallecano side who are yet to keep a clean sheet on the road.

Vallecano’s shocking away form

They may be fourth in La Liga, but Rayo Vallecano’s away form this season has been shocking. They have collected just five points on their travels, losing six times in nine outings.

That win came against Athletic Bilbao in mid-September, but they have registered four defeats in five games since and lost each of their four away clashes with the other teams in the top six.

Andoni Iraola’s side are up against it in this one. They have not kept an away clean sheet since returning to La Liga in the summer and have failed to score in four of those nine matches on their travels.

I predict that Atletico will turn their recent bad form around by winning this one, selecting 2-0 as a correct score prediction.
