Rayo Vallecano vs Alaves Match Analysis and Prediction

La Liga returns to the fold this weekend when Rayo Vallecano welcome Alaves to the Campo de Futbol de Vallecas for the 18th round of the campaign. This exciting fixture schedules for 18th December 2021 at 16:00 EAT.

Last year’s Segunda División champions Rayo Vallecano get a chance to climb in to the top four this weekend.  Rayo Vallecano’s home form is the main reason why they are sitting in sixth place with 29 points after 17 matches, having won seven and drawn one of their eight matches on their own patch in Madrid.

Coming into this game Rayo Vallecano secred after a 1-3 Copa Del Rey triumph against Bergantiños in their previous outing. In that fixture, Rayo Vallecano had 52% possession, 15 shots with eight of them on target and goals scored by Mario Suárez (37′), Pathé Ismaël Ciss (67′) and Sergio Moreno (90′). Bergantiños got 13 shots with four on target.

On the other hand Deportivo Alaves will be looking to return to their winning ways coming off the four game winless run which sees them just two points above the relegation zone. One of the major struggles for the visitors this season has been scoring; they have only scored 13 times in 16 matches, recording the second lowest tally in La Liga this year.

In their previous game against Linares in Copa Del Rey competition, Alaves lost 1-2 and they will be hoping bounce back here. In that match, Alaves had 57% possession, 14 shots with four of them on target and a goal scored by Mamadou Sylla (67′). Linares got attempts with nine on target.

Four out the previous six meetings between these two teams have ended with goals over 2.5 and we expect the same results at the end of this match considering that Rayo Vallecano averaged 2.47 goals per game this season in La Liga, while Alaves averaged 2.19 goals per game so far in the league.
