Rayo Vallecano and Villarreal will be facing each other at the Estadio del Rayo Vallecano on Sunday afternoon, with both looking to get back to winning ways in La Liga. Rayo Vallecano were beaten 2-3 at home by Barcelona last weekend, with their goals being scored by Pozo and Alvaro Garcia. Villarreal only managed a 1-1 home draw against Levante last time out in the league thanks to a stoppage-time equalizer from Alfonso.

Betting Tips for the game
Rayo Vallecano have endured a terrible run of form over the past two months, losing five and drawing four of their last nine competitive games. They have only won one of their opening eleven league games, having collected just six points in this term. Rayo are second from the bottom in the La Liga table, already five points behind safety.
Villarreal have also been in poor shape over the past two months, having won just two of their last ten competitive fixtures. The Yellow Submarine are winless in three competitive matches, although they have lost just once in this term. Away from home, Villarreal are winless in their last four away games across all competitions, losing twice in the process.
With both teams in such poor shape of late, we can’t see another result here than a draw. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a draw at odds 3.30.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
These two sides have only scored 21 goals between them throughout this La Liga campaign. Villarreal have only netted nine goals in eleven rounds so far this season, but the positive thing is that they have only conceded eleven in this term. However, they have failed to keep a clean sheet in their most recent competitive trips. Our total goals prediction expect under 2.5 goals at odds 1.90.

First Goalscorer odds
Gerard Moreno has scored 29 goals for Espanyol over the past two seasons, but he has only netted two goals for Villarreal this season. However, he is a dangerous player going forward and we back him to get back to goalscoring ways here. Our first goalscorer prediction is Gerard Moreno at odds 5.00.
