Rayo Vallecano

      Tip Reasoning

      Rayo are popular with the neutrals for their attacking brand of football and likable demeanor. They are one of the few teams in this league to play football and not shut up shop even against the strong sides and we saw evidence of that at the Camp Nou last weekend when the Vallecas club had more possession than their illustrious opponents but still lost the game 5-2.

      They also scored twice away against Sevilla before the internationals but again they lost the game and their problems are very similar to what they were last season in that they concede too many goals.

      Espanyol have had similar problems at times this season but did win 3-1 on the road last time out to move into the top half and they have actually won 5 of their last 9 La Liga away games so they’ll certainly come into this game fancying their chances.

      These two clubs have the joint worst defensive record in the league with 17 goals conceded so far in just 8 games. Certainly both managers will feel their attacking play is very much their strong suit at the moment and that should lead to an open contest here and one that both sides will have just reason for believing they can win.

      Therefore at Evens there seems real value in backing there to be over 2.5 goals in this match and both teams to score.

      Both sides are a little hit or miss particularly the visitors. Espanyol have won 4 and lost 4 so far in La Liga with poor defeats against Deportivo and Sporting Gijon coming prior to their win at Betis, so it is hard to feel confident that they are quite the real deal yet.

      Rayo Vallecano have had some pretty tough games but have taken 6 points from the 3 games against sides that you’d expect to be in the lower half and they will see this as a good opportunity to get back to winning ways.

      It is likely to be close but if you’re looking for a correct score bet consider backing Rayo Vallecano to win 2-1 at 8/1.
