Tip Reasoning

  • Five of Vallecano’s last six home games have included less than three goals
  • Only one of Bilbao’s 11 away league matches has had three or more goals
  • Rayo remain unbeaten at home in La Liga this season

Vallecano to keep run going?

Logic says Rayo Vallecano’s incredible home form must come to an end at some point, but nothing in their recent results suggests such as they head into this game having won eight and drawn two at Campo de Fútbol de Vallecas.

What Andoni Iraola’s side do incredibly well is keep games tight. They have conceded just four times at home in the league, keeping six clean sheets in the process.

The minor concern though is that goals have dried up a touch at the other end of the field, and as such only one of their last six outings has included three or more goals

Bilbao not scoring enough

Athletic Bilbao are another team who keep things tight, and they have in fact already registered four 0-0 draws on the road in La Liga this season.

Their 11 away matches have delivered only 12 goals, and four of them came in one game, a recent 3-1 victory at Osasuna, they only time they have won on their travels.

Marcelino García Toral’s side are further hurt by what looks like a season ending injury to Oihan Sancet, picked up in the Copa del Rey on Thursday. It is difficult to see where the goals are coming from.

This looks like it should be a really tight game, so I predict there will be fewer than three goals, but I have a hunch that Rayo Vallecano could sneak it, selecting a 1-0 home win as a correct score prediction.
