Atletico Madrid – Rayo Vallecano: prediction and bet by Ivan Mlechny

Well, the New Year holidays are in full swing and the Spanish La Liga continues its activity as well. Now I would like to talk about the meeting between Atletico Madrid and Rayo Valecano. Let’s figure it out!

It would seem, what is there to disassemble? One of the strongest team in the Spanish championship, against a modest rival … But if you look at the standings, then everyone in La Liga is storming, and only Real is stable. Atlético have lost four games in a row, and Rayo Valecano is in the table one line above the mattress. Griezman broke down, plus tremendous defensive problems for the team. If not long ago Atletico Madrid was represented by a team that practically does not concede, now the opponents have hit their goal in seven matches in a row.

Rayo Valecano is somewhat similar to London’s Arsenal. The team also started the season with defeats, but then began to consistently gain points in matches with their direct competitors. Even the place in the championship is the same for the teams. Rayo is very stable in defense, but as far as attack is concerned, there are also problems there. There is no understanding yet whether Garcia, who is the top scorer in the squad, will enter the field, but in general, the fact that the team has already climbed so high is worthy of respect.

Atlético played their last match on December 22, and I think that for the team and for Simeone, this pause should have had a positive effect. Otherwise, I think that the day is not far off when the position of the head coach of the team will be called into question. Even if Griezmann’s participation in the match is questionable, there are enough players in the team and without him who must give results. But still, I don’t expect a lot of goals from this meeting, Atlético needs to score points, and not mindlessly run to score. My prediction for this match is that Atlético will win and the final total is less than 3.5. Good luck!
