Elche vs Rayo Vallecano Prediction: La Liga Match | 29.04.2023

Rayo Vallecano remains in the hunt for a European finish this term, and they could move up to eighth with a victory this weekend. Elche will be the hosts, as they look for maximum points to ensure that their relegation isn’t confirmed this weekend.

La Liga Preview

Rayo Vallecano is enjoying an excellent season in La Liga this term, and they could yet end the campaign in a European spot. They currently sit ninth in the standings, but they could climb a place with a victory this weekend. A success would also put them level on points with Bilbao, and within a point of the top six. However, they will need to overcome some patchy form over recent weeks, as they have won just two of their last five.

Vallecano picked up a famous win in their previous match, as they landed a 2-1 home success against Barcelona. It was a solid performance by Vallecano on that outing. They opened the scoring after 19 minutes, before Fran Garcia effectively sealed maximum points early in the second half.

Elche’s relegation back to the second tier could be confirmed this weekend, as they currently sit 18 points from safety with seven games of the season remaining. A defeat for Elche coupled with a win for Getafe would condemn them back to the second tier. It has been a forgettable season for the hosts this weekend, as they have won just twice in 31 outings. 

They come into this fixture having lost each of their previous five matches, while they are the lowest-scorers in the league. Their most recent loss came in heart-breaking fashion, as Celta Vigo netted their winning goal in the 90th minute on Wednesday. 

Elche vs Rayo Vallecano Head to Head 

Each of the previous four clashes between the sides have been won by the team with home advantage. In fact, only one of the last seven La Liga meetings has been won by the team playing away from home. Vallecano secured a 2-1 win in the previous meeting this term.

Elche vs Rayo Vallecano Prediction 

The home trend in this fixture is fascinating. However, it is incredibly hard to merit support for Elche since they have won just twice all season. Vallecano should come into this game in good confidence after their midweek win over Barcelona, and we expect them to land a 2-0 success.
