ATLETICO MADRID VS RAYO VALLECANO PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
Since the jubilant 4-1 victory on Cadiz’s field in round 14, all four matches after Atletico Madrid were disappointing when they were all empty-handed. It is worth mentioning that in the last 4 defeats of the defending champion. There were 2 defeats against two bottom opponents, which are Mallorca and in the last match against Granada. With that poor series of matches, not only are they being far behind Real Madrid with a gap of up to 17 points but coach Simeone’s army has been knocked out of the top 4 when having only 8 victories after the 18th round.
Quite surprising that Rayo Vallecano is only a rookie of this year’s tournament but they are currently in the top 4 with 30 points after 9 wins, 3 draws and 6 losses. Even more impressive when this rookie is the team that owns the best home record today with 8 wins and 1 draw, including beating Barcelona. However, away is the weakness of Rayo Vallecano players when they currently have only 5 points after 1 win, 2 draws and 6 losses, most recently losing 0-2 to Villarreal.
This will be the time when the defending champion needs to be shocked after the recent unconvincing performance and they can completely get a good result in this round of 19 when the opponent is just a rookie. However, to beat a team that has a record above themselves with a score difference is not an easy task for Atletico Madrid when their recent performance is extremely disappointing. Therefore, the lower bet is a more reliable choice.
Select: Rayo Vallecano FT.
Among the 7 teams with the best performance at the moment, Atletico Madrid is together with Barcelona as the two teams that have received the most goals with 22 goals after 18 matches, of which all the last 4 defeats have been in each match.

Select: Over 2 1/2 FT.
Although it is expected to face many difficulties before this formidable opponent, with the level of the defending champion and playing at home, Atletico Madrid is clearly being appreciated. In addition, surely Coach Simeone’s army has prepared very carefully for this confrontation after nearly 2 weeks to be able to revive the spirit after a series of disappointing matches. Therefore, the possibility that the home team will defeat this opponent is quite feasible.

This is a match where Atletico Madrid is more appreciated, but with the recent poor performance, they are expected to face many difficulties.
