La Liga: Atletico Madrid vs Rayo Vallecano preview, team news, prediction and tips
December 31


Atletico Madrid and Rayo Vallecano will face off in the La Liga matchday 19 at the Wanda Metropolitano on Sunday. The kick-off is at 17:15 CEST.


You arguably couldn't have expected a situation like this to happen before the start of the 2021/22 season but newly-promoted Rayo Vallecano sit in fourth in the La Liga table with 30 points ahead of their forthcoming encounter with reigning champions Atletico who are only fifth in the standings, one point adrift of the Vallecanos.

What's more, Andoni Iraola's men will travel to the Wanda Metropolitano on the back of just one loss in their previous five Spanish top flight games while Diego Simeone's side have only won once over the same period of time while losing four league matches on the bounce ahead of Sunday's clash, including a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Granada on December 18. Rayo, meanwhile, are coming into this fixture on the back of a 2-0 triumph over Alaves before Christmas.

Team news

Jose Maria Gimenez, Stefan Savic, Sime Vrsaljko, Marcos Llorente and Antoine Griezmann all remain sidelined for Atleti while Alvaro Garcia is the only confirmed injury absentee in Iraola's squad.


Atletico have conceded at least twice in each of their four defeats before the first La Liga in 2022 and thus we wouldn't be surprise if in-form Vallecans will be able to find the back of Jan Oblak's men on the weekend. Atletico, for their part, will be eager to put an end to their current awful run of results on Sunday, so let's stick with BTTS in this one.
