Rayo Vallecano will be at RCDE Stadium on Friday for the La Liga clash with hosts Espanyol.
Espanyol will play in this match after a 2-2 La Liga drawn match vs Celta Vigo. It has been a rare occasion in recent times that Espanyol have shown defensive steel. The reality is that Espanyol have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, leaking 10 goals in the process.
Last time out, Rayo Vallecano drew 0-0 in the La Liga tie with Barcelona. During their six most recent matches, Andoni Iraola's Rayo Vallecano have had reason to celebrate scoring a total of 5 times therefore giving them the goals per game average of 0.83.
In my opinion, Rayo Vallecano will likely be able to put a goal past this Espanyol team, however that may not quite be enough to avoid a loss. I think that it’s going to be a very close game with a 2-1 winning score for Espanyol by the conclusion of the game. It really should be an interesting one.
