Leganes vs Rayo Vallecano Predictions

October 30, 2018

Looking at Leganes vs Rayo Vallecano Predictions, the two teams meet in the first leg of the Copa del Rey round of 16. This will take place at the Estadio Municipal de Butarque .

 

You could say that this was the result of a cruel lottery for Leganes and Rayo Vallecano. This is because they will face each other to qualify for the last 16 of the Copa del Rey. Instead of facing a number of lower division teams at this stage, the two teams from the Spanish elite competition were given a much more difficult task, because they would try to get rid of each other.

 

After all, the two teams have performed poorly in the La Liga competition this season. They are both in the relegation zone after playing 9 rounds in the Primera Division.


Leganes will enter this match with greater enthusiasm, having recorded 1 win and 1 draw from the last 2 matches in the league. This included successfully avoiding defeat against Valencia at the Mestalla ten days ago.

Coach Leganes, Mauricio Pellegrino even almost claimed three points in Valencia. However, Jose Gaya finally saved Marcelino's troops from defeat, scoring an equalizer five minutes from the end.

 

Rayo Vallecano has always been a difficult opponent for Leganes. Los Franjirojos recorded 10 wins, 5 draws and 5 losses from 20 meetings with Leganes so far.

 

Both teams have recently met each other in the elite class of Spanish football. The match which took place earlier this month was won by Leganes 1-0, thanks to a goal from Guido Carrillo.

 

Rayo Vallecano has never won in the last 6 matches in the league. They really only recorded 1 win since the start of the season. In addition, Rayo recorded 3 draws and 3 defeats in the last 6 matches.

 

Unlike their rivals, Los Franjirojos were not very successful in the Copa del Rey last year, when they lost the second round match at home to Tenerife with a score of 0-3.

 

Leganes managed to reach the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey last season. They surprisingly managed to overthrow the elite team like Real Madrid in the quarter-finals, before losing to Sevilla with a 3-1 aggregate score.
