Celta Vigo
    Rayo Vallecano

      Tip Reasoning

      Rayo visited Estadio de Balaídos as recently as April but were on the wrong end of a 6-1 thrashing. It was a performance which showed exactly what Celta Vigo are all about with attacking football and Nolito running the game from the number 10 role. However their goalscorers on that day have both since left with Santi Mina, who scored 4 joining Valencia and Joaquin Larrivey who got the other goals moving out to the UAE over the summer.

      However they were delighted to welcome former Liverpool and Sevilla man Iago Aspas back to Vigo and he netted 35 goals for the club in his final two seasons in Galicia and scored on his second debut last weekend as Celta won 2-1 at Levante.

      Confidence will be high then as they head into this game and they look well capable of at least matching last seasons 8th place finish. They made a very strong start to the last campaign and will fancy their chances of making it two wins from two here at home to Rayo.

      The memories of their convincing win in April will certainly help them and a record of just 1 defeat in 11 Primera Division matches also points towards a home win here. However they are quite short for the win at 8/15 so you can secure much bigger returns by backing them to win and there to be over 2.5 goals at 13/10

      Rayo held Valencia to a 0-0 draw on the opening day which wasn’t a typical scoreline for them by any means. They are usually an attacking side, even away from home and they do pose a threat but with the joint worst defence in La Liga last season are always liable to leak goals so it is easy to see there being 3 or more in this one.

      Vallecano only failed to score in 5 away matches last season so you can certainly see them getting on the scoresheet here. However they conceded 3 or more goals on 7 separate occasions on the road and although Celta may struggle to repeat the 6-1 win from April, a 3-1 scoreline is more realistic and can be backed at 11/1.
