Sevilla will be looking to put their recent defeat against Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup behind them, when they travel to the Estadio del Rayo Vallecano to take on Rayo Vallecano on Sunday night in the first round of the La Liga 2018/19 season. Rayo Vallecano have won the La Liga 2 title last season to return in La Liga after two years of absence. Meanwhile, Sevilla finished only 7th in La Liga table last season, just three points clear of the 8th-placed Getafe. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Rayo Vallecano’s recent form in pre-season has seen them lose back-to-back games. The most worrying fact is that they have failed to score in the most recent two. The positive thing is that Rayo Vallecano have been a strong team on home soil over the past nine months, having lost just twice in their last 15 games across all competitions.
Sevilla have already been involved in a couple of official fixtures. They managed to beat Zalgiris 6-0 on aggregate in the Europa League qualifiers to book their place in the play-offs. However, sandwiched in-between those two Europa League legs, Sevilla lost 2-1 at the hands of Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup. They have enjoyed a strong run of form in pre-season and should have no problems against Rayo on Sunday.
Sevilla are undefeated in the last nine meetings with Rayo Vallecano in La Liga and we expect them to extend this record. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate Sevilla to win at odds 2.05.

Pablo Sarabia has scored just six goals for Sevilla in La Liga last season. However, he looked deadly in front of goal for Sevilla in this early part of this 2018/19 competitive season. Sarabia has already netted six goals in four of Sevilla’s five official fixtures of the season. Our first goalscorer prediction is Pablo Sarabia at odds 10.00.
