Getafe and Rayo Vallecano Seek First Win in Six RoundsPublished April 1, 2016 by Florin P
Winless teams square off in relegation derby. (7:30 p.m UK Time).
At the bottom of the standings, the battle is every bit as intense as at the top of La Liga and Getafe and Rayo Vallecano are two of the teams trying to avoid relegation. The outcome of this game is going to be extremely important for both of them, because the loser will sink below the dreadful line.
Offensive Football Backfires Often for Rayo Vallecano
Rayo Vallecano didn’t change much since returning to the first division and is still playing the same aggressive football that helped them promote. This season, the strategy could backfire badly and send them back into the second division. They’ve allowed plenty of goals both at home and on the road, with the backline being stretched to the maximum.
Few points were picked up on the road and the team has suffered some of the most lopsided defeats this season. However, they have very little to fear from Getafe, a team that is a poor traveler and usually settles for one point on the road.
No Point in Defending the Draw
Getafe will have to change something in its strategy and take more chances because this match is a rare exception when they can’t accept a draw. The two teams are tied with 28 points and unless they win, one of the counter candidates is very likely to leapfrog them over the weekend.
Punters should side with the home side once again and take the odds of 9/10 offered by bet365 Sports on Rayo Vallecano to win. Their strategy might fail them in the end, but for the time being they are the one that can stick to the plan, while the visitors need to make amendments. Getafe has only scored 9 goals on the road the entire season while allowing 40, which makes them very vulnerable in this fixture.
