Sevilla will look to continue their fine recent form in the league this Sunday, as they travel to Rayo Vallecano. The hosts could also do with the win, as they could move up to fifth with a victory.
La Liga Preview
It was a rocky first half of the season for Sevilla, but they are finally looking to be back on track in La Liga. They have been able to turn their form around, and they now sit 12th in the overall standings. Sevilla has picked up three victories from their previous four matches, which is as many wins as they had managed in their opening 16 matches of the season. That run of form has seen them open up a four-point advantage over the bottom three.
Sevilla was very comfortable in their previous fixture in La Liga, as they secured a 2-0 home win against Mallorca. Youssef En-Nesyri opened the scoring after 28 minutes, before the advantage was doubled before the break by Bryan Gil. They didn’t allow a single shot on target in that fixture, but this looks like a tougher assignment, especially as it comes in the middle of their Europa League commitments.
Vallecano is enjoying an excellent campaign in La Liga this term, as they look as though they have a key role to play in the battle for the Champions League spots. They come into this fixture five points off Atletico Madrid, but they could move up to fifth with a victory this weekend.
However, they will need to get back on track after their were only able to pick up a draw in their most recent match in La Liga. That point was picked up against Getafe, as they surrendered a 1-0 lead in the final 15 minutes. A response will be needed this Sunday.
Rayo Vallecano vs Sevilla Head to Head
Vallecano has a fine recent record in this fixture, as they have avoided defeat in each of their previous two fixtures against Sevilla. However, they have failed to win any of their last six home matches against their rivals this weekend, with three of those fixtures ending in draws.
Rayo Vallecano vs Sevilla Prediction
