Rayo Vallecano Prediction

Rayo Vallecano have done their cause in avoiding relegation no harm at all having put together an impressive set of results prior to this crucial encounter on Monday night as the hosts are unbeaten in their last five matches in La Liga.

This run includes four wins against Levante, Real Valladolid, Celta Vigo and Deportivo Alaves along with a point against Real Sociedad. Despite this impressive upturn in form though, the hosts still remain in the bottom three but are now level on points with their visitors, Leganes, ahead of this ‘six-pointer’ on home turf.

Rayo Vallecano’s home record stands at 3-4-4 19/24 and they’re also unbeaten in their last five at their Estadio de Vallecas as results are now starting to go their way after a dismal start to the campaign saw the hosts without a home win from their first seven matches.

However, the hosts can score goals but they also concede at a rapid rate too which has resulted in both teams scoring in 10 of their 11 home matches to date.

Leganes Prediction

Leganes sit just one league position above their hosts, Rayo Vallecano but level on points as they make their way to Madrid for this important relegation clash on the back of just one win from their last seven matches overall in the Spanish top flight.

That win came in a narrow 1-0 home win over bottom club Huesca, while away from home, Leganes have recently suffered back-to-back defeats at Espanyol and Barcelona within an overall record of 1-3-7 8/17 which has seen the visitors register just one win on their travels all season.
