Barcelona vs Rayo Vallecano: Prediction
The story is completely opposite with Rayo who will come into this in the lowest of spirits. They lost five on the bounce in La Liga and have dropped down into the relegation zone as consequence. The latest of failures came last Friday when Los Franjirojos offered one of their weakest showings of the season in a 0-2 defeat to Girona.
Rayo did nothing to cause troubles to Girona’s back line on the occasion and we can’t see them challenging Barcelona’s defense here.
