Rayo Vallecano vs Girona #Spanish La Liga #Date: Friday, 1 March 2019 #Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET #Venue: Estadio de Vallecas (Madrid)
We expect a true madness at the Estadio de Vallecas on Friday night, when Ray Vallecano will face Girona in a true decline to six points. The hosts are seconds from the bottom with two points between them and the security zone.
A victory here would be huge for them, but can they win a victory after a series of four consecutive defeats in the competition?
Girona is in the 15th position and five points behind the counterparts on Friday. Blanquivermell has accumulated four points in the last two rounds and draws against Real Madrid and Real Sociedad.
It is interesting to note that they finished a series of six defeats against the competition nowhere else, but at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, beating the holders of Real Madrid, holders of the Champions League, there are two weeks.
Head coach Eusebio Sacristán seems to have finally managed to find the right formula to keep things closed on his back. Girona has allowed only one goal in the last two games against powerful offensive teams.
Rayo Vallecano vs Girona: head to head
- Rayo Vallecano had a run of four consecutive victories against Girona before a 2-1 defeat in that first race in the Municipal Stadium of Montilivi.
- There have been at least three goals scored in three of the last four cases of H2H between the two “likes”.
- Rayo won two, fired one and lost one of four home games with Blanquivermell.
Rayo Vallecano vs Girona: Prediction
The Franjirojos have seriously compromised their high-flying ambitions with four consecutive losses in the league. They scored only one goal in the last two league games, but they did not leave much more at the other end since the attack took place like Atlético de Madrid (0-1 defeat) and Getafe (defeat 2-1).
In general, Michel’s men have the weakest defensive record in the league. They have allowed 27 goals in 13 draws at home so far this season. We do not expect two directors to take unnecessary risks, given the enormous importance of the game. Supporting a goalless draw in the first half seems to be a good option at 2.75.
- Rayo Vallecano vs Girona: 1-2
