Tip Rayo Vallecano - Celta Vigo
From the 18 matches played so far, Rayo have managed just four wins but they are the side with the most wins among the teams in the relegation region and they will be eyeing one more win that could possibly get them off the drop zone. With three wins in their last five league matches, they will head to this clash on better form than their opponents who have no win in the last three matches and two in five. Celta Vigo will however bank on a stronger striking force having scored 29 goals as compared to 18 by Rayo. Four of the two sides’ last five meetings have ended in over 2.5 goals while Rayo have won four of the last six and 14 of 28 total meetings, with Celta Vigo winning seven. Just one draw has come from this clash in the last 11 meetings. Celta Vigo have picked just two wins in their last 16 away La Liga matches, losing 10 and going to play a team with just one home loss in the last five and two wins in the last three will have them on the edge, especially having managed no clean sheet in their last 17 away matches.
