Rayo Vallecano vs Real Betis
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 31 March 2019
Kick-Off at 13:00 UK/ 14:00 CET
Venue: Estadio de Vallecas, Madrid.
Rayo Vallecano host Real Betis for their Matchday 29 clash on Sunday looking for a return to the winning ways after seven consecutive losses, last bagging a win in late January and struggling to build on it despite finding the net on the regular.
Franjirrojos have thus seen Barcelona and Villarreal both bag the points on the road despite scoring on both occasions, as their defensive errors prove costly time and time again. Michel has struggled to find a cure for such woes and hosting Beticos should prove a tough task as well – as his men struggle to escape the relegation zone towards late in the campaign.
Real Betis will now hope they can capitalize on the rivals’ troubles too as they search to end an underwhelming streak of their own, where a 1-4 loss to Barcelona ahead of the break was their third in four outings across competitions. They’ve beaten Celta 0-1 on the road in the process and the travelling fans hope to see them replicate such an upset at Estadio de Vallecas as well.
