Prolific hosts a big danger to Barca

Recent fixtures involving Rayo Vallecano have been riveting to watch and we’re anticipating plenty more action when they welcome Barcelona to Estadio de Vallecas this week.

Andoni Iraola’s side have undoubtedly been one of the most entertaining teams to follow in La Liga so far this season, and they’re currently the second highest scorers in the Spanish top flight after hitting 17 goals across their opening ten games.

The Madrilenians went down 3-2 against Real Betis at Benito Villamarin on Sunday, but that result was no disgrace considering how well Los Verdiblancos are playing at present. Rayo are still a healthy seventh in the table and that represents a superb start to life back in the top tier for Los Franjirrojos.

Their home form has been crucial up this point with a perfect four wins from four posted at Estadio de Vallecas, and Barcelona have no easy task here following their 2-1 weekend El Clasico defeat against Real Madrid at Camp Nou, while they’ve been dismal to date on the road with a return of just one point from three away trips.

Over 2.5 a confident selection in the capital

It means the visitors should be avoided at odds-on for this Matchday 11 clash, for which over 2.5 goals stands out as the most solid punt.

Rayo Vallecano’s prolific form up front has contributed towards five of their last six starts generating over 2.5, while three of Barcelona’s last four games have also seen three or more goals netted.

In addition, these sides have traditionally served up a number of barnstorming encounters, with the last six and 13 of the last 14 meetings all producing at least three goals.

With the teams powerful in attack but equally vulnerable in defence having maintained just two clean sheets apiece this season, over 2.5 warrants a three point stake and we’re also keen to chance a 2-2 result at decent odds, with the highly watchable hosts capable of holding the Catalans to a draw.
