Rayo Vallecano vs Getafe
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 21 October 2018
Kick-Off at 11:00 UK / 12:00 CET
Venue: Estadio del Rayo Vallecano (Madrid).
Rayo Vallecano host Getafe in the first game of the day on Sunday in La Liga. Neither of the two sides will enter the game in the highest of spirits following defeats they suffered in the previous rounds respectively.
Los Franjirojos fell 1-0 to Leganes away at Butarque. They are still at the very foot of the league standings with just five points from seven matches (they have a game in hand on the rest of the league). Michel’s men are on a poor streak of four straight outings without a victory in the competitions. Given they played the likes of Alaves, Sociedad, Espanyol and Leganes in the process, we can say it’s a quite disappointing return which may suggest the team is doomed to the relegation battle in this term.

Rayo Vallecano vs Getafe: Prediction
Getafe are also winless in four La Liga outings coming into this clash at Estadio del Rayo Vallecano. They found goals hard to come by along the way, netting just two times in last four matches. The most recent of failures for Jose Bordalas’ men came two weeks ago when they lost the home tie to Levante 0-1.
Azulones’ games gave generally been short on goalmouth action ever since the start of the season. Each of eight matches they played in Primera Division this term saw fewer than three goals scored.
There is no reason for such low-scoring trend to be stopped here when they take on fellow strugglers Rayo Vallecano and the Under 2.5 goals FT is the safest of betting options you can take for this affair.
