      Villarreal vs Rayo Vallecano Predictions

      The Yellow Submarine is wobbling a bit after a bright start to the season. They are still in the top six in La Liga but have only taken 1 point from their last 3 matches and fell to a shock 3-2 defeat at Huesca in the Copa del Rey in midweek.

      On home soil they are still a major force though. Villarreal have won 9 of their last 11 matches at El Madrigal in all competitions, losing just once and they’ll be confident of picking up another win here, which could send them back into the Champions League places depending on other results this weekend.

      Rayo Vallecano will have a go though. They are an attacking side whether they are at home to struggling teams or away to the stronger sides and that should lead to an open game and a few goals.

      They are in decent form with 10 points coming from their last 6 games but inconsistency and defensive howlers continue to haunt them, especially against the stronger sides. In their last 6 matches against teams currently in the top half, they have conceded 3 or more goals on 5 occasions.

      There is always a goal in this Rayo side though so we should see goals here and odds of 4/5 for there to be 3 or more goals in the match looks to represent good value.

      This is a good opportunity for Villarreal to get back to winning ways. They have found the sides that sit back and frustrate them difficult to break down at times but this should be more open and Villarreal should get quite a few chances so backing the home team to win 3-1 at 11/1 is worth a punt in the correct score market.
