Rayo Vallecano vs Celta Vigo is the first match of round 19 of La Liga. Both teams are in the lower half of the table and need points to avoid the relegation in Segunda Division.
Until this game, the hosts are on 19th place with just four wins in 18 games. However, two of these victories came in the last two fixtures of Rayo which will give them confidence. At home, The Vallecans are performing better in comparison of their away fixtures. During the previous two months Míchel’s players have been defeated only by Barcelona on Campo de Futbol de Vallecas.
Celta began the year just like they ended 2018 – with a defeat, this time at home against Athletic Bilbao. The form of The Celts is discouraging for the team’s fans, and the effect of Miguel Cardoso’s appointment seems to be lost. Celta have just two wins in the previous two months – against Huesca and Villarreal. Away from home, The Sky Blues is one of the teams with most conceded goals which costs points of the team. Celta have conceded at least two goals in the previous five games in La Liga as guests.
The home factor will be the crucial factor for the game on Friday, and we think that Rayo Vallecano will continue their good performance and will take points from Celta.
