      Getafe vs Rayo Vallecano Predictions

      This is the ‘other Madrid derby’ between two clubs on the Southern fringes of the Spanish Capital who rarely compete with the big two but enjoy a healthy rivalry with each other.

      Local derbies are often very different to ordinary games and they can produce some peculiar strings of results and this is a fixture that has strongly favoured the away side in recent times. The visitors have won 4 of the last 5 meetings between the sides.

      Significantly for anyone betting on this match Rayo Vallecano have enjoyed a really strong run of results against their local rivals. They’ve won won 4 of the last 5 meetings between the clubs and did the double over Getafe last year.

      Indeed they have won on all 4 visits to Getafe since winning promotion in 2011 and that alone suggests there might be value in backing an away win here at tempting odds of 2/1.

      Rayo have won 2 of their last 3 matches as well to move clear of the bottom 3 and up to 12th in the league. They are now 3 points and 3 places above a Getafe side, which has lost its last 3 fixtures, conceding 10 goals and only scoring once. As a result the pressure is mounting slightly on Fran Escribá, who only became Getafe boss in the summer.

      Getafe will also be without some important players here too. Damian Suarez and Alexis are suspended while Carlos Vigaray and Álvaro Medrán are likely to be missing due to injury so certainly a 5th straight Rayo win at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez looks appealing at such long odds.

      There’s not a great deal between the sides though so it is likely to be close. Rayo are always positive so goals are likely here and a 2-1 away win may be worth a punt at 10/1.
