Real Betis vs Rayo Vallecano Prediction
Quique Setien’s men play one of the most attractive styles of football in Europe as of now. With his limited budget, he has already performed wonders with this team. Real did school Barcelona at the Camp Nou and inflicted them with one of the heaviest defeats in recent their history, just three weeks back.
Rayo is a side who is in contention for relegation at the end of the season. They really don’t stand much chance, on the road, against a side like Betis. Real has lost only one of their last seven matches, and at home, they are unbeaten in the last five fixtures. Betis has lost just one of their last ten home ties.
Rayo is winless in 12 of their last 14 away ties and is on a run of five winless away ties.
