Getafe vs Rayo Vallecano
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 23 February 2019
Kick-Off at 12:00 UK / 13:00 CET
Venue: Coliseum Alfonso Perez (Getafe).
Rayo Vallecano enjoyed a fabulous run of four wins and a draw in five straight league matches.
Michel’s men thus proved they have what it takes to stay competitive in the elite class football and they earned hope for survival after an underwhelming campaign in the first part of the season.
Nevertheless, Los Franjirojos returned to the old habits in recent weeks as a streak of three subsequent defeats saw them drop down to the red zone once again.
Michel’s troops now sit second from bottom, but still only a single point below the safe zone line.
Bringing a three-loss run to an end will be quite a big challenge for them on Saturday afternoon when team travels to Coliseum Alfonso Perez to take on 5th-placed Getafe in the 25th round of La Liga.
Getafe vs Rayo Vallecano: Head-to-head
Rayo lead the head to head tie by three wins coming into 19th encounter with Azulones.
Nonetheless, it’s Getafe who won last two H2H matches, including this term’s 1-2 victory at Estadio de Vallecas.
Both teams scored just once in past four head to head ties.
Getafe vs Rayo Vallecano: Prediction
Getafe are generally enjoying an overwhelming Primera Division campaign this season. They hold the sky-high 5th position after 24 rounds and they will come into this in high spirits in spite of a changeable form in recent months.
Azulones took four points from last two league games against Celta Vigo (3-1 win) and Eibar (2-2 draw) netting five goals in the process. They notched four wins on the bounce in front of the home crowd in all competitions conceding just one goal along the way.
Since Rayo will enter this off the back of three successive losses and since they scored just 7 goals in 11 away matches this season, the home win to nil looks to be just the way to go here.
