      Deportivo La Coruna vs Rayo Vallecano Predictions

      Deportivo have been struggling of late after an excellent start to the season. They’ve not won any of their 7 matches since the brief winter break and they have only 1 win in 11 matches overall. They’ve slipped to 9th place as a result and could really do with 3 points here to stay in touch with the top six and potentially European football next term.

      They are 10 points better off than opponents Rayo Vallecano who are in the relegation zone and had to watch on as rival teams including Las Palmas and Sporting Gijon won at the weekend to leave them in greater danger.

      Rayo do come into this game after 2 excellent performances of their own though. They drew 2-2 at Valencia in their most recent away match and had enough chances to win the game. They followed that up with their best showing of the season as they crushed high-flying Celta Vigo 3-0 last weekend with 3 first half goals so they’ll head into this match with real confidence.

      That was though a very rare clean sheet for Rayo and their first in 12 league outings. Both teams had scored in 6 of their 7 previous matches and they play the same attacking game wherever they go so this should be an open contest.

      Rayo have the best goalscoring record in the bottom half but worst defensive record in the league. They take on a Depor side that has only failed to score in 1 home league game since last March but has also conceded in 5 of their last 7 at the Riazor. Therefore backing both teams to score at 3/4 looks a decent punt here.

      The Madrid club finished above Deportivo last season by some margin and have enough attacking quality to get themselves out of their current plight. With Depor struggling at the moment consider backing a 2-1 away win at 12/1.
