Simeone had a tough away trip to Valencia to start off the La Liga season and he will be satisfied with the team returning back home with a 1-1 draw.

It was a cagey affair in all terms with teams focusing not to make any individual errors at the back.

Meantime, Vallecano’s return to Spanish top flight after a short 2 year absence didn’t go well.

They were thrashed at home by a typically poor travelers Sevilla by 4-1. Three quick goals in the first half laid the foundation for the crash, Vallecano still made 13 attempts on goal and the one that found the back of the net was from the penalty spot.

Atletico Madrid vs Rayo Vallecano Prediction

The vast difference between the qualities in the sides make this one of the least interesting game for punters.

And we, just like you have little doubt that Atletico Madrid, the heavy favorites are expected to simply run away with a victory here. The historic h2h also suggests that as a visiting team, Vallecano had difficulties both in getting points and scoring goals.

Ultimately, the direct 1×2 bet as well as handicaps are no use for us, prices varying between 1.15 and 1.52. We will look into the option that bring us some money with some risk.
