Rayo Vallecano vs Celta Vigo Predictions


Both teams have struggled for wins in recent weeks, and a tight contest seems likely in Madrid.

BTTS offers some value, particularly when considering Rayo´s home record, while a draw could prove the best pick on Monday. 

  • Rayo Vallecano have seen BTTS in 12 of their last 14 home matches
  • Rayo Vallecano have drawn 7 of their last 10 matches
  • Rayo Vallecano have drawn 3 of their last 5 matches against Celta Vigo
  • Celta Vigo have seen BTTS in 5 of their last 7 away matches
  • Celta Vigo have drawn 5 of their last 9 matches

Head to Head


Sunday´s La Liga matchup will be the 13th meeting between Rayo Vallecano and Celta Vigo since November 2013. Rayo has a narrow five-to-five winning record, although they have failed to win any of their last six matches against Celta since January 2019. 

Celta picked up a goalless draw In their most recent match at the Estadio de Vallecas just over a year ago. 

Rayo Vallecano Form


Rayo´s strong early-season form has dipped in recent weeks, with just one win recorded in their last ten league matches. Los Franjirrojos had won three of their first five La Liga fixtures this season. 

A 4-0 defeat at Bilbao last weekend extended Rayo´s winless streak to seven to five matches. 

At the Estadio de Vallecas, Rayp have drawn four of their last five league games. All four of those encounters saw both teams get on the scoresheet. 

Rayo Vallecano Team News


Rayo boss Francisco has no new injury issues and a near-fully fit squad to choose from for Monday's La Liga action. 

Alfonso Espino is suspended after he collected a fifth yellow card of the season against Bilbao.

Celta Vigo Form


After another draw last weekend, Celta Vigo remain winless in eleven La Liga matches since September. Held to a 1-1 draw by Cadiz in Vigo, Rafa Benitez´s side find themselves inside the drop zone, two points short of safety. 

Celta did manage to claim a rare victory with a 2-1 road win at lower-league opponents Sestao River in the Copa del Rey earlier this week. A double strike from Greek forward Anastasios Douvikas secured a place in the third round for the Sky Blues. 

On the road, Celta had lost four in a row before a goalless draw with Valencia in their most recent away league fixture. 

Celta Vigo Team News


Experienced boss Benitez has just one injury absentee, with Joseph Aidoo sidelined long-term with an ACL injury. 

Greek forward Anastasios Douvikas could come into the Celta first XI after his double strike in Celta´s Copa del Rey victory. 

Verdict

Rayo have developed a taste for draws in recent weeks, and that pattern could continue on Monday.

I´m taking both teams to score, while I also expect this La Liga encounter to finish deadlocked.
