They even turned things around in the first half after conceding an early opener to gain the 1-2 lead through Luis Advincula and Oscar Trejo. However, the recently-promoted side could not hold on to it allowing a late equalizer from Willian Jose.

Espanyol, on the other side, continued with stern defensive performances in their respective fixture, The Budgerigars picked up the third straight clean sheet win on the home patch, beating Eibar 1-0 on Tuesday. Mario Hermoso was the difference-maker. He netted the only goal of the game midway through the second half.

Rayo Vallecano vs Espanyol: Head-to-head

  • Espanyol were much more successful in the history of head to head encounters with Los Franjrojos.
  • The Budgerigars won 12, drew 7 and lost only 5 of 24 meetings with Rayo Vallecano.
  • Rayo won just one of last six H2H games with Espanyol.
  • As many as five of last six head to head affairs saw goals at both ends.

Rayo Vallecano vs Espanyol: Prediction

The visitors have been much more consistent so far in the season. They climbed up to fifth place after beating Eibar on Tuesday.

The Budgerigars look very tough to break down under Rubi (only four goals conceded in six games so far) and the rock-solid defense is just what might bring them the result from the trip to the capital here.

The hosts boast league’s second weakest defensive record and we can’t see them on the winning side here. Espanyol not to lose is a banker at 1.53, while you can also try with the visitors to clinch the spoils at 2.75.

  • Espanyol or Draw @ 1.53 (8/15)
