Sports Track Score Prediction




Match Preview

Barca seem to have shaken off their temporary loss of form. They are once again back to their winning streak, and are in possession of the second position in the table. While a first place finish seems really out of their control, Xavi’s men are going to try to stay in the title race until the very end.

This Sunday they are at home, and after the loss they experienced in the Champions League at the same stadium, the home fans will be determined to get home fans back to their corner.

Meanwhile, Vallecano did try their very best in the beginning of the season. But as the season progressed, they found it hard to keep their level up.

As of now, they are placed 14th in the table, with a surplus of just seven points over the relegation cut off. They are also going through a worrying stretch of performances, and are letting in goals in huge numbers.

Going on, they also have a poor h2h record against his opponent over the years.

By the looks of things, expect a win for Barcelona this Sunday at their home.

Barcelona vs Rayo Vallecano Head-to-head (h2h)

Barcelona vs Rayo Vallecano Prediction & Analysis

Barcelona recorded a 0-1 win on the road the last matchday, against Real Sociedad. They had experienced a minor loss of form before that, but now it seems they are back in their groove.

It also needs to be noted that they have been one of the best teams at home so far this season.

On the other hand, Vallecano did record a 0-1 win on the road the past game week, against Espanyol. But they were on a 12-fixture winless run before that, and they also could manage a total of just two wins on the road this season in the La Liga.

Considering these observations, expect a win for Barcelona this Sunday.
