Barcelona is going to welcome Rayo Vallecano at the duel of the intermediate 28th round in La Liga. Here is our soccer prediction.
The hosts are on the 16th position in the provisional standings with 26 points and just 2 away from the relegation zone. `The bees` will have to make a strong end to the season if they want to remain in the Primera. After the meeting with Barca ahead of their duels with Espanyol, Granada, Eibar and Getafe, so it`s going to be very important for the team to score points against these rivals.
Rayo Vallecano boasts a series of seven games without a loss in `La Liga`, the problem, however, is that the team won just two of them. Five of those matches ended in a 2:2 result - pretty laudable for the attack of the team, but not for the defense. In 2016, Rayo has had no loss at home, by achieving 2 wins and 3 draws. In its latest household, they did 2:2 with Sevilla, which ended the victory in front of an audience of their own series, as previously overcame Celta (3:0) and Las Palmas (2:0). In the match according soccer predictions with Barcelona, the coach Paco Hemes again won`t be able to count on Javi Gera, Razvan Rat, Patrick Ebert, Kobeno and Tono. It is possible that the specialist to do some rotations to keep part of his players fresh for the upcoming matches against Barcelona as the hosts could hardly hope for a positive result.
This weekend Barcelona achieved their ninth consecutive victory in the Championship and confident coming to the defence of the title in La Liga. The Catalans beat Sevilla with 2:1 at Camp Nou having had to make a turnaround, once the guests took the lead in the score. With a brilliant goal from Leo Messi from free kicks and a hit of Gerard Pique the students Luis Enrique snagged the top three points and kept the advance of eight before the second Atletico Madrid.
If there is something that can Luis Enrique is not satisfied during the month of February, it is the presentation of the defence team. Barca got a goal in each of the previous four games even as rivals such as Las Palmas and Sporting Gijon scored. This may be due to a slight relaxation of the composition, which, when the visit of Arsenal in the Champions League does keep dry network, winning with 2:0.
During the first half of the season Barca defeated Rayo with 5:2, and in the last 10 matches against this opponent will not misstep, realizing a total of 45 goals in the door of `bees`. We don`t think that the hosts will hinder the champions in the upcoming game. I`m betting on a romp as Barcelona`s Messi and company will take advance more until the break and will keep it, and maybe increase in the second half.
Our soccer forecast is 2.
