Rayo Vallecano vs Atletico Madrid Prediction: La Liga Match

Atletico Madrid is ending the La Liga season in excellent form, and they could yet make a charge for second place in the standings. They will be on the road this weekend, as they clash with a Rayo Vallecano side that is winless in their previous five.


La Liga Preview 

Atletico Madrid could yet end the season in second place in the La Liga standings, as they have returned to excellent form since the winter break. They have now picked up victories in each of their previous four matches, and no side has picked up more points than them over the previous five rounds of fixtures in La Liga. Atletico remain third overall in the standings, but they are just five points behind their cross-city rivals. 

Atletico’s winning run was maintained last weekend, as they scored a late winner to claim a 1-0 home success against Real Betis. That was the third straight game in which they had kept a clean sheet, and it was the second time over that period that they had recorded victory by a 1-0 scoreline. 

Rayo Vallecano’s season has hit a bit of a flat spot over recent weeks, as they come into this fixture without a win in five. They are the only side in the top eleven not to have recorded a victory over that period, and it means that they are now seven points off the top six places in La Liga. 

Vallecano was held to a second straight draw in their previous fixture, as they couldn’t hold on to a 1-0 advantage over Valencia. Their only effort in that goal was netted by Sant Comesana, and it was one of just two shots that they managed to record on target in 90 minutes. 

Rayo Vallecano vs Atletico Madrid Head to Head 

Atletico’s record in this fixture is extremely strong, as they have recorded 13 wins from the previous 17 meetings between the sides. They are also unbeaten in eleven previous clashes between the sides in the league. However, the previous match this season saw the points shared following a 1-1 draw. 

Rayo Vallecano vs Atletico Madrid Prediction

We find it hard to look past Atletico this weekend, as their form since the World Cup has been excellent. It may be a low-scoring fixture between the sides, but we see the away team claiming a 2-0 win on their travels.
