Interestingly, Leganes’ lone league win came just against the defending champions Barcelona in their previous home clash played ten days ago. The Legionaries failed to capitalize on such scalp by falling 10 to Real Betis away at Estadio Benito Villamarin last Sunday. Can they return on the winning way here against the recently-promoted Rayo?

Leganes vs Rayo Vallecano: Head-to-head

This will be the first official head to head clash between these two sides in this decade.

They met each other on five different occasions in friendlies ever since their previous official meeting in 2008.

Teams divided the success evenly, winning two games each and drawing one in these five friendly outings.

Overall, Rayo lead the H2H tie with 10 wins to Leganes’ 4 in 19 matches so far.

Leganes vs Rayo Vallecano: Prediction

Rayo’s boss Michel can be satisfied with his men’s display in the final third as Franjirojos have been pretty efficient up front so far in the season. They notched four goals in back-to-back draws to Real Sociedad and Espanyol in last two rounds and they generally come into this in high spirits.

Nevertheless, it’s the lack of meticulousness at the back what’s causing Michel’s headaches. Rayo have the second-worst defensive record in the entire league. They are shipping two goals per game on average and they will travel to Butarque having allowed as many as nine in last three league outings.

Knowing that Leganes have been anything but a stern defensive side so far in the season, we have reasons to expect goals here. The value is strong with the BTTS option set at the 1.95 odds. Braver punters can shoot for the draw at the odds of 3.30.
