Atletico Madrid vs Rayo Vallecano Preview & Analysis

Rayo Vallecano will travel to Madrid for their first away fixture of the new year and take the reigning Champions of La Liga, Atletico Madrid.

After being relegated to the Segunda Division in 2019 and playing two straight seasons there, Rayo Vallecano has entered the top flight in style, and is currently on the 4th place on the points, with a one-point lead over 5th placed Atletico Madrid.

Atletico is on one of its worst run of forms since manager Diego Simeone took over a decade ago. The team has now lost 4 consecutive games coming into this game, including losses against teams from the bottom half, Mallorca and Granada.

On the other hand, Vallecano enters this contest pretty confidently, having lost just one game in its last five. The football betting sites are still favoring Atletico Madrid very heavily and that could be a possible betting opportunity.

Atletico Madrid vs Rayo Vallecano Betting Tips

Rayo Vallecano has been flying the past few weeks but has been jolted by a massive COVID-19 outbreak within its squad. In fact, as many as 17 first-team members have tested positive for the virus. Coach Andoni Iraola too hasn’t been spared. Tuesday’s training session saw just 8 first-team players take the ground, while the others awaited their PCR test results.

Atletico Madrid has no such concerns, and each of its players has tested negative in antigen tests. However, collective training will only start once the PCR results come back. However, Marcos Llorente, Stefan Savic, Antoine Griezmann,  and Sime Vrsaljko remain doubtful due to injury concerns.

While Rayo coach Andoni Iraola has been nothing short of mesmerizing this season, the COVID outbreak will severely hamper his abilities to play around with his squad on the field. Also, while his home record is currently the best for the season among Europe’s top 5 leagues, the team has lost 6 out of its 9 away games so far.

Atletico Madrid has a massive opportunity to get back on track and will surely be looking to be back to winning ways this Sunday. It is also going to utilize its home advantage to the fullest.

Bet on an Atletico Madrid win.
