Rayo Vallecano vs Eibar Prediction & Match Preview

Rayo Vallecano vs Eibar
Spanish La Liga
Date: Friday, 30 November 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio de Vallecas (Madrid).

Eibar broke into the top half of the Primera Division standings after an emphatic 3-0 thumping of European champions Real Madrid last weekend at Ipurua. It was a thrilling display from the Gunsmiths who were in control form the very get go.

Midfielder Gonzalo Escalante opened up the scoring 16 minutes into the affair, while Eibar’s pair of strikers Sergi Enrich and Kike added a goal apiece within five minutes, just before the hour-mark. Jose Mendilibar’s defensive line looked rock-solid once again as the team now held on 180 minutes without conceding a single goal in La Liga.

Eibar will have a nice chance to keep such a splendid run going on Friday night when they travel to Estadio de Vallecas to tackle recently-promoted Rayo Vallecano in the suburbs of Madrid.

Rayo Vallecano vs Eibar: Head-to-head

Rayo lead the head to head tie by one win coming into 15th encounter with the Gunsmiths.

Eibar took four points from two head to head games with Rayo in the 2015/16 league campaign (1-0 and 1-1).

Teams have three wins apiece in seven matches in Madrid.

Rayo Vallecano vs Eibar: Prediction

Rayo now boast league’s weakest defensive record after shipping three goals in a demolishing loss to Valencia at Mestalla. They allowed two or more goals in each of last four La Liga fixtures and come into this winless in past ten matches.

It will be the music to the ears of Sergi Enrich and Kike who should have plenty of room to exploit the mentioned holes in Rayo’s back line. The away win is well worth backing at the odds of 2.45 if we know the visitors head into this off the back of two wins and a draw in last three league outings. Furthermore, they bagged three goals without any response against the likes of Real Madrid who were previously on a streak of four straight wins under new manager Santiago Solari.
