GIJON v RAYO VALLECANO – Spain Premiera
February 12 2016, Estadio de Callecas, 17:15 GMT+0
Rayo Vallecano, a team we already know and has brought us some nice profit, with a win against Las Palmas (2:0). Today Rayo will visit Gijon at Estadio de Callecas, where Gijon holds a record of 3-3-4.
Even though these two teams are at the bottom of the table, their performances are improving lately. Gijon surprisingly managed to beat Valencia on the road (0:1) and pulled of a huge win against Rel Sociedad at Estadio de Callecas (5:1). But there is one crusual information, when it comes to today’s match. The player, Antonio Sanabria who scored 3 goals in the match against Real Sociedad and 10 goals this season is going to miss this match and that will be a huge blow for the home side due to Injury. Besides the young star Antonio Sanabria, Nacho Cases and Bernadino Espinosa will also miss this one.
Not only the hosts but also Rayo has showed their strength in the last matches. A win against Celta Vigo (3:0) and a draw against Deportivo La Coruna (2:2) shows much needed improvement for the Madrid team.
There might be some concern going into this match without Jose Baena, Patrick Ebert, Razvan Rat, Ze Castro and a top scorer Javi Guerra, but the latest transfers will surely help on this occasion. New signing Bebe, from Benfica already scored his 1st goal last week. Aras Ozbiliz and Manual Iturra are also new players in Rayo Vallecano and will help fill up the holes caused by the injuries.
I see much improvement in Rayo Vallecano and morale of the squad is at it’s high, with addition of new signings I believe they can come out as a winner.
Prediction: Rayo Vallecano +0.25
