      Rayo Vallecano vs Real Sociedad Predictions


      Rayo Vallecano find themselves in the relegation zone as we head into the New Year although they will move above Real Sociedad if they win this and lift themselves out of the bottom 3. Their recent form has been awful though and they’ve lost their last 5 matches, conceding 19 goals in the process although 10 did come in one game at the Bernabeu.

      The opposition has been quite tough with games against the two Madrid giants as well as Celta Vigo and Athletic Bilbao to contend with. This is much more winnable on paper and it comes against a Real Sociedad side who are also struggling.

      Since winning his first game as Real Sociedad boss against Sevilla, Eusebio hasn’t had much joy, winning just one of seven since then and they’ve lost their last two matches. A 3-1 defeat at the Bernabeu in midweek has left them perilously close to trouble and this could well be a pivotal game in their season.

      There could well be a fair few openings in this game with neither too convincing at the back. Rayo Vallecano have the worst defensive record in the league by some distance while although Real Sociedad are now scoring a few more goals they are also conceding more and have let in goals in all but one of their last 10 fixtures.

      These pair do have the joint best goalscoring record in the bottom half so neither are completely toothless at the other end with Imanol Agirretxe and Javi Guerra both averaging better than a goal every other game so far in La Liga with 12 and 9 goals respectively to their names.

      Both teams have netted in 5 of Rayo Vallecano’s last 7 matches in La Liga while both teams have scored in 5 of the last 6 games involving Real Sociedad. Therefore we could well see both teams on target again here and you can back that to be the case at 8/11.

      These clubs do have goals in their sides but Rayo have lost their last 3 home games and Real Sociedad have taken just 1 point from their last 4 games on the road. Therefore you couldn’t confidently back either for the win right now given the way both clubs are playing so consider taking a punt on a 2-2 draw at 12/1 in the correct score market.
