Atletico Madrid vs Rayo Vallecano 02.01.2022
After a weeklong hiatus, La Liga is set to resume this weekend, with defending champions Atletico Madrid looking to restart their campaign with a win over Rayo Vallecano in front of their home fans at Wanda Metropolitano. Diego Simeone’s men have endured a rough patch lately, having failed to win in 4 of their last 5 league matches, And should be poised to get back on track in this fixture.
For their opponents, it is a matter of finding a rhythm after a good run of form involving 4 wins and 1 loss in the last 5 league matches. Rayo is still enjoying a brisk start to the new season which has kept them in the league’s top 4.
Atletico Madrid are the undisputed favorites in this encounter despite their shoddy form heading into the contest, but Rayo will not throw in the towel easily. As a result, we fancy a match with less than 3 total goals with home emerging victorious.
