Vallecano will be disappointed on the other hand as they had to settle for a home draw, against Villareal, despite leading the scoreline till the 81st minute. The hosts couldn’t even take advantage of their extra man, as Alvaro was sent off for Villareal. The scoreline read 2-2 at the end of the game.

Valencia vs Rayo Vallecano Prediction

The Mestalla has always been a fortress for Valencia. Many of the great teams in the Spanish League actually dread a visit to the stadium. The fans as well the ground has such an astonishing ability in pulling off favorable results for the home team.

Vallecano is possibly one of the worst teams in the top division of Spanish football right now. They occupy the 19th place in a league of 20. An away match against Valencia is not really what the fans wanted right now.

The home team, currently desperate to get back to their old form will take advantage of this peach of a situation and in all probability will completely demolish the visitors.

The hosts will walk out with a win while dominating both the halves in the process.
