Rayo Vallecano
    Real Betis

      Tip Reasoning

      Rayo Vallecano have long held the reputation as one of the league’s more attacking sides and they are usually a good candidate for a high scoring game. They had the league’s joint worst defence last season but still achieved a creditable mid-table finish courtesy of scoring plenty of goals.

      Their opponents on Sunday, Real Betis have been perhaps a bit more attacking than you might have expected from a newly promoted side too and they’ve picked up some good results to leave them in the top half after 6 games. They were 2-1 winners away from home against Sporting Gijon last time out and will have no reason not to be positive here again against a Rayo side that has lost 3 of their last 5 games, conceding 3 times on each occasion.

      There have been over 2.5 goals in 4 of Rayo’s last 5 matches and they have been scoring goals too. They almost staged a brilliant comeback against opposition from Seville last weekend but ultimately went down 3-2 at the Sanchez Pizjuan.

      With both sides likely to fancy their chances of the win here, we should see an attacking contest and odds of 4/6 for there to again be over 2.5 goals looks like a worthwhile bet.

      Predicting the winner is a harder task as Rayo are quite an unpredictable side. On their day they can be excellent but they also have a habit of slumping to defeats in games they really shouldn’t be losing such as the 3-1 home loss to Deportivo La Coruna a few weeks ago.

      Betis tend to travel well and have only lost twice on the road in 2015 and one of those games was at the Bernabeu. However Rayo have only lost 3 of their last 12 games in Vallecas in La Liga so they don’t get beat often at home and a relatively high-scoring draw might be a more likely outcome here than either side winning the game.

      Therefore consider backing it to finish 2-2 at odds of 10/1.
