Before the start of Wednesday's pool, Espanyol is in 12th place in the La Liga table with 39 points. The gap between them and Granada, who are in the relegation zone, is 10 points. Even with these statistics, they will keep their place in the elite by a large percentage. After resuming matches in La Liga, they have played three matches in which they have picked up three points, losing to Real Sociedad and Atletico, but beating Celta 1:0 on home soil. Overall, Espanyol has good home statistics, seventh in the division, 31 points from 16 games on a 23:16 goal difference. It should be noted that Espanyol has won their last three home matches.
After the international break, the team drew 2:2 in Granada, lost 1:1 at home to Valencia and lost 0:1 to Alaves in the last round. The poor results have led to Rayo Vallecano slumping to 14th place in the La Liga standings, only five points clear of the relegation zone. That said, most teams from the bottom of the table look good at the end of the season, meaning that Rayo is at high risk of relegation at the end of the Spanish championship. Rayo's away record is only 19th in the division, with 11 defeats in 15 games, one win and a goal difference of 10:26.Watch Free Live Stream
Expert Betting Tips
In the last round of La Liga, Rayo Vallecano had at least one goal, or two, but failed to score. In the upcoming game in Barcelona, we believe the visitors will be rewarded and they will score. Also, let's not forget about the high motivation of the visitors. Espanyol has a great home record for a mid-tier side and almost never leaves without scoring. Our first bet is both teams to score for 1.97.
The second bet is a somewhat illogical option in terms of statistics. After all, Rayo has been struggling away this season, while Espanyol has been having a fairy tale on the home field. However, let's not forget the motivation. The end of the season is approaching. Elche beat Betis on Tuesday, Cadiz was stronger than Barcelona the day before, why shouldn't Rayo beat Espanyol in Catalonia now as well? W2 for 2.98.
In this pairing, we also suggest betting on the correct score 2:1 for 11.00.
