Rayo Vallecano – Sevilla FC B : Preview & Prediction
Liga2 continues and on this day two teams that are extremely far apart in the general table will face each other. In the previous one, Vallecas’ side started as a big favorite, having to win the game to stay in the fight to stay in the playoff zone. He is expected to have spaces to play due to the constant defensive problems of his rival.
These days, the Madrid team drew 1-1 against Osasuna in Pamplona, extending their match streak to 4 without losing in the competition (3 draws and 1 win). At a firm but slow pace, the team is managing to be more cohesive between the lines. Offensive effectiveness has, having to adjust a little more defensive performance.
As a local, Rayo Vallecano has reaped acceptable results in his field, despite having yielded some important points (7 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses, managing to score 25 goals and give 16 in his fence). His last home results were the following: Triumph 1-0 against Granada, victory 2-1 against Alcorcón, fall 2-3 against Nástic, draw 2-2 with Oviedo and 5-1 win against Lorca.
The campaign of the Andalusian subsidiary has been very bad, being very likely that it ends up losing the category. The worst of the situation is linked to the poor offensive work of the squad and the constant defensive mistakes that end up costing them consecutive defeats. It comes from losing 0-1 against Huesca last Sunday, staying with 16 units in total. They have added 4 losses in a row.
Acting away from home, Sevilla Atlético has won 1 win, 4 draws and 7 sacks, proving to be a frail eleven in this condition (7 goals scored and 19 received in their goal). He has lost his last 4 starts (2-1 against Nástic, 3-0 against Numancia, 1-0 against Valladolid and 2-1 against Cultural Leonesa).
The last duel between both sets was in the first round and finished 0-0 in the field of Sevilla Atlético. In Vallecas they met at the beginning of last year, ending 1-1 in that occasion.
In the previous one, Rayo Vallecano starts as favorite due to the collective and offensive potential that he has, which is allowing him to be in the playoffs and fight for sneaking into the direct promotion. The team is balanced and effective in attack despite some defensive problems, with their goal winning more matches consecutively (1 win in their last 4 presentations and equaling the other 3). Considering that his rival is one of the worst in the championship, we believe that the Vallecas squad can score a pair of goals in favor and repeat the tremendous efficiency he had against Lorca a few weeks ago (beating 5-1). Remember that Sevilla Atlético won 1 of 12 starts, losing 4 in a row.
