Girona vs Rayo Vallecano
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 27 October 2018
Kick-Off at 12:00 UK / 13:00 CET
Venue: Estadi Municipal de Montilivi (Girona).
Rayo Vallecano travel to Estadi Municipal de Montilivi for the early Saturday fixture (starts exactly at noon) against Girona in the 10th round of La Liga.
Los Franjirojos were in action in mid-week when they drew 1-1 at home to Athletic Bilbao. Michel’s men had the lead thanks to Jose Angel Pozo’s goal midway through the first half, but Iker Muniain saved appoint for the Basques netting the equalizer midway through second.
The recently-promoted Rayo thus still sit second from bottom being just a single point above the rock-bottomed Huesca and they desperately need a breakthrough victory to move on into the safe zone.
The team won just one of nine games so far (six points in total) and they took just one point from last three league outings.
Given the opposition included Leganes, Getafe and Athletic Bilbao (all bottom-half sides), we can say it’s a bitterly disappointing return for Michel and his men.
Girona vs Rayo Vallecano: Head-to-head
Rayo will rely on the head to head trend here given they lost just one of eight meetings with Blanquivermell.
Los Franjirojos were pretty successful so far in matches at Estadi Municipal de Montilivi where they drew two and won two of four clashes against Girona.
Rayo come into this off the back of four straight victories over Blanquivermell.
Girona vs Rayo Vallecano: Prediction
Much like their counterparts, Girona are struggling to get their campaign up and running after a streak of five consecutive outings without a win. They’ve been so inconsistent so far in the season. The team drew 0-0 to Real Sociedad away at Anoeta last time out, a result which followed a 2-3 home loss to Eibar.
Since neither of the two sides is pulling up any trees at the moment, the draw does look to be the most likable of three outcomes and we will go for it at the odds of 3.60. The alternative pick would draw at the half time at 2.20.
Girona vs Rayo Vallecano: Bet Tips
Draw @ 3.60 (13/5)
Draw at the half time @ 2.20 (6/5).
