In La Liga, it is currently particularly exciting in all areas of the table. Therefore, it is not surprising that even eleventh (SD Eibar) can or must look both up and down. Thus, quite a lot is possible for a whole series of teams. On Friday night, spectators in the Campo de Futbol de Vallecas can look forward to a very exciting relegation battle between Rayo Vallecano and Girona, a prediction seems to be not so easy after the recent losing streak of both teams at first glance.
Football Betting Tips Rayo Vallecano vs Girona
Rayo Vallecano is currently far from good. But the fact that the last bad results against a) very strong opponents came about and b) were always scarce, Rayo should look a little worse than they actually are. Girona, on the other hand, is probably in the limelight a little more than they deserve. The 2-1 win against Real Madrid came as a surprise, but it only outshines a long-running series of 13 games without a win (eight defeats, five draws). The fact that subsequently was not refilled in the home game against Real Sociedad, confirmed that the win against Real was more of a fluke. In the league game between Rayo Vallecano and Girona there is a tip for the home victory of the Madridelenen odds of up to 2.50 at the bookmakers. Crucial in this encounter should also be to what extent Rayo’s enormously strong home offensive will come into its own.
Rayo Vallecano has gained a reputation as a kind of lift crew in recent years. Multiple up and down descents were to be cheered, on the other hand, but also to cope. Now, “Los Franjirojos” have once again risen to the top Spanish league and fight again for the league. After a very bad start of the season this Zeil came very fast in the distance. The Michel-Elf was only able to record seven points on the credit side after 13 matchdays and thus had a respectable gap to a non-relegation spot very quickly. This was followed by a phase (late December to late January), where a significant increase in shape was seen. It seemed as if the crew had slowly but surely arrived in La Liga. Five games in a row were not lost, four won. Through this small buffer, Rayo could cushion the last again miserable series of four defeats in a row. The gap to the first non-relegation zone 17 is therefore only two meters. Given the poor goal difference of -15, however, three points would have to be made up. That of Celta Vigo (# 16) is only -7. Despite the four bankruptcies in series, the past few weeks have been quite encouraging and shown what the team from the southeast of Madrid is capable of. Additional hope makes the record against the rivals in the relegation battle. Celta Vigo and Valladolid were defeated 4: 2 and 1: 0. A look at the last two defeats also shows that the overall picture could be a bit distorted. Losing against Atletico Madrid and Getafe is truly no disaster.
A sticking point in the game Rayo Vallecano Vs. Girona could be the host’s offensive play in front of their own spectators. One may not believe it, but Rayo has the fifth best attack in the home table. Whole 20 goals were scored. By comparison, Real Madrid is only worth 19. The defensive is by no means solid and therefore many goals can be expected in this match. In the 13 previous home games, there were no less than 47 goals to marvel at (20:27). Ten of the 13 home games at Vallecano ended with a successful “Over 2.5 goals”. This statistic also suggests some goals on Friday night. In addition to the bets on the game outcome would be in the game between Rayo Vallecano and Celta Vigo a tip with odds of 1.90 on the “over 2.5 goals” another good option.
Expected formation of Rayo Vallecano:
Dimitrievski – Velazquez, Ba, Amat – Tito, Imbula, Comesane, Moreno – Embarba, De Tomas, Trejo

Since 2017/18, Girona is part of the inventory of the highest Spanish league. Right in the first year, the Red-Whites were able to convince as newcomers and complete the season in a respectable tenth place. In the current season, it looks after 25 game days but still rather looking as if the focus should be fully focused on the relegation battle. 28 points collected are currently enough for only 15th place. The lead over the first relegation place is just five points. In La Liga, Girona waited a long time for the first three in 2019 before the seemingly impossible happened to Real Madrid and a 2-1 win away. Presumably, this was the late revenge for the end in the quarterfinals of the Copa del Rey. Nevertheless, 2019 remains a rather mixed year. After the sensational win against Real was followed last weekend by a 0-0 against Real Sociedad, which probably grounded the team of coach Eusebio again a bit.
In addition to the league victory against Real Madrid, the Catalans experienced their biggest climax in the Copa del Rey when they were able to point Atletico Madrid in the second round sensational in the barriers. Two draws (at home 1: 1 and in the Spanish capital 3: 3) were enough to fix the progress. By the way, in both cases there was a tie after 45 minutes. What sounds like a success speaks, however, a little against the Catalans. Because in eight of the last nine meetings Girona had already suffered at half time always at least one goal. In this sense, it is actually the logical consequence between Rayo Vallecano and Girona, due to the lucrative quotas, to steer the prediction in the same direction. If “Los Franjirojos” continue to confirm their good offensive and Girona like to concede at least one goal, especially in the first half, the course could quickly be put on victory Vallecano.
Expected formation of Girona:
Bono – Ramalho, Alcala, Juanpe, R. Garcia – A. Garcia, Luiz, Granell – Portu, Lozano – Stuani

For this reason, a tip is in the encounter between Rayo Vallecano and Girona again a bit easier than was first assumed.
