      Sporting Gijon vs Rayo Vallecano Predictions


      Rayo are going well at the moment and they were in need of a few results after a poor start to the campaign. They are unbeaten in 8 matches in the league and have moved up to 15th as a result, 1 place and 1 point better off than opponents Sporting.

      That run has included excellent wins against Celta Vigo and Las Palmas at home and a couple of draws on the road at Valencia and Deportivo La Coruna. However their opponents have also achieved encouraging results in recent weeks.

      They were 1-0 winners at Valencia prior to a 1-1 draw with Depor and have 7 points from their last 3 matches thanks to a crushing 5-1 home win against Real Sociedad prior to that. They’d also been really struggling for results prior to those games so these are two teams that have mirrored each other to a certain extent.

      Both teams have also been a pretty good watch with goals tending to follow them around. Sporting have been involved in two 5-1 games in recent weeks and there have been 3 or more goals in 7 of their last 12 fixtures.

      Rayo Vallecano meanwhile are also often involved in high scoring games. There have been 3 or more goals in 10 of their last 12 fixtures so backing there to be over 2.5 goals in this game at 17/20 looks a sensible ploy.

      Both of Rayo’s last two games on the road have ended in 2-2 draws. This looks like another match that is tough to call but one that both teams will attack with the chance to put a rare bit of distance on the bottom three with a win. However it would be no great surprise to see this finish all square and it wouldn’t be a disaster for either boss given it would extend their current unbeaten runs for another game.

      Therefore another 2-2 draw for Rayo on the road looks a good shout here at 12/1.
