      Rayo Vallecano vs Las Palmas Predictions


      The hosts have started picking up some results and have taken 5 points from their last 3 games to boost their survival hopes. They weren’t easy matches either with 2-2 draws coming away from home at Valencia and Deportivo either side of a 3-0 win at home over high-flying Celta Vigo.

      They remain in the bottom three but could move above Las Palmas and all the way up to 14th with a win here. You have to admire Rayo who have stuck by unapologetically attack-minded manager Paco Jémez despite a poor start to the season which has included some humiliating defeats include their 10-2 thrashing at the Bernabeu.

      They will only ever play one way under Jémez and there have been 3 or more goals in all of their last 5 matches. Las Palmas are 1 point better off than Rayo in a congested bottom end of the table and have also played with a refreshingly positive approach, which has led to one or two high-scoring games.

      There have been 3 or more goals in all of their last 3 league games and 5 of their last 6 matches. Therefore there are plenty of reasons to expect goals here and backing there to be over 2.5 goals in this one at 8/11 looks a smart move.

      Las Palmas were winners last time out at home to Celta Vigo but their away record is very poor and they are now 20 games without an away win in the top flight and haven’t won a Primera Division match on mainland Spain since January 2001.

      Therefore a Rayo Vallecano side that look like they’ve turned a corner might nick a high-scoring game and odds of 22/1 for a 3-2 home win look tempting.
