Starting Time: 12/02/2017 - 08:00 PM
Saturday's match welcomes Granada to Rayo Vallecano with 2 of the better teams in the Spanish La Liga 2 facing off against each other. Both teams are in fairly decent form, with Granada having 6 wins out of their previous 10 games and Vallecano only having lost twice in their last 10. Crucially though, Granada only have 1 win in their past 4 games, so their previous momentum has slowed down in the month of November.
I'm taking Vallecano to win this, mainly because of their fantastic recent home record, having won 4 and drawn 2 of their latest 6 matches. In a match between 2 good teams, confidence at home can often be the difference. Although Vallecano may have had a couple of draws at home recently, when you delve into the statistics, you will see that they were by far the dominant team, with much higher possession as well as shots on target...with a bit more luck these draws would have been home victories.
These 2 teams also have an interesting head to head record. Vallecano have won 4 of the previous 5 matches, with the remaining, most recent match, being a draw in Granada. Vallecano will certainly have the psychological edge.
The odds have been dropping for the home win at various bookmakers, with prices being taken at the betting exchanges. Best odds currently available are at Pinnacle, offering 2.04 which I calculate to be of slight value. Any odds above 1.95 should be taken.
