Rayo Vallecano are Getafe are 17th and 18th respectively are on same points. The result of this match is highly significant as who goes down to Segunda Division is often decided by the slightest margins.
Both teams are without a win in their last 6 league games, but Rayo seems to be good at getting draws as they have 4 draws from those 6 matches, while Getafe have 4 defeats from their last 6 league matches.
Rayo Vallecano have conceded 63 goals in Spanish La Liga this season, the most number of goals by any team in the league.
Rayo have scored 41 goals so far this season, 13 more than the 28 goals scored by Getafe.
Getafe have conceded at least 3 goals in 8 of their last 10 away games and they have also failed to score in their last 4 league games.

Rayo Vallecano vs Getafe: Prediction
Getafe are very poor at the moment and they have produced a very poor away record in their last 10 games. Judging from this, Rayo Vallecano will go into this game with an upper hand. At the same time, neither Rayo nor Getafe have won in any of their last 6 matches in the Spanish Primeria Division.
A scored draw will be a very likely outcome on Friday, but Rayo’s scoring tendancy versus Getafe’s goal shyness make me think otherwise. Both teams are desperate to get out of the relegation zone and no one will want this more than Rayo on Friday and then will be highly motivated against a team who has lost 4 of their last 6 matches.
My betting prediction for this match is Rayo to win with odds at 1.85 @ Bet-at-Home; new customers can get a 50 sign-up bonus. I also expect this watch to produce 2 or more goals and I believe over 2.5 goals (odds 1.72) is a very likely outcome.
