Rayo Vallecano vs Sevilla – Primera Division.
Estadio del Rayo Vallecano, Madrid – 21 February, 11:00.
Match Preview and Betting Tips.
After they have probably secured another round of matches in Europa League after 3 – 0 home victory against Molde, Sevilla will once again have to focus on Primera Division progress. They are currently on pursuit of Villarreal, team which is currently sitting on 4th position. Sevilla will be traveling to Madrid, where they will be hosted by bottom table team Rayo Vallecano. Visitors are favorites to claim victory with 6/5 odds, while small team from Madrid’s suburbia is underdog with 21/10. I am expecting very interesting match because Rayo have presented themselves as very good hosts lately, currently being undefeated for 5 games. First duel between them in September was super interesting to watch. First Sevilla had 2 – 0 lead, but Rayo have scored two quick goals in early stage of second half. Final 3 – 2 result for Sevilla was set by Ukrainian Y.Konoplyanka four minutes from end.
After their catastrophic 10 – 2 defeat to Real Madrid, many experts thought that Rayo Vallecano are simply not Primera Division material. This squad led by Paco Jemez has proved them wrong in last 30 days. They were playing very attractive football, collecting 9 out of possible 15 points in last 5 matches, not losing any of them. This allowed them to escape the bottom and relegation zone. They are currently on 15th position with 24 points.
When it comes to their opponents Sevilla, they are being carried heavily by amazing striker Kevin Gameiro. So far he scored 13 goals on 22 appearances. Even though fans and club board were expecting more from Juventus acquisition F.Llorente, this Spaniard have scored only 3 goals, including one in already mentioned match against Molde. Sevilla are currently 5th. That is still 8 points behind their season goal and UEFA Champions League qualifiers.
