Rayo Vallecano vs Levante
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 23 December 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio de Vallecas (Madrid).
Rayo Vallecano will be desperate to pick up a result on Sunday evening when they host Levante in the last game of the year in La Liga. The hosts won’t enjoy their winter holidays to the max unless they grab a victory here. They sit second from bottom in the league ladder being five points short of the safe zone at the moment. The clash with Levante is winnable for them, but Los Franjirojos will need to step up and find the attacking form if they actually want to grab a three-pointer here.
Michel’s men were struggling badly for goals in recent Primera Division outings. They scored just one goal in past five games in all competitions. They won only 2 of 16 matches so far in the season which is why we don’t quite understand the 2.00 odds offered for their victory here.
Rayo Vallecano vs Levante: Head-to-head
Levante lead the head to head tie by two wins coming into their 23rd encounter with Los Franjirojos.
Rayo, however, won each of last three home outings against the Frogs netting at least two goals in each of these ties in the process.
Both teams scored in four of past five head to head affairs.
Rayo Vallecano vs Levante: Prediction
Levante showed much better displays throughout the season. They are looking to go on a festive period from the top half of the ladder with a victory here. The Frogs are one of the most efficient sides in the entire league. They notched an impressive 27-goal tally in 16 games so far. They are also very easy to break down which could have best been witnessed in last two league rounds.
The team led by Paco Lopez conceded as many as nine goals in last two matches (4-4 draw to Eibar and 0-5 loss to Barcelona). Interestingly, Levante are unbeaten in past five Primera Division matches on the road. Based on everything written above, we just have to take the 1.83 odds offered for the Frogs not to lose here.
