Since returning to La Liga in the 2021/22 seasons, Rayo Vallecano was a mid-table team, finishing 12th with 42 and 49 points - nowhere near the danger zone. Over the Summer, their coach, Andoni Iraola, left the team, but very little has changed under the new coach. Rayo are once again around the middle of the league's table and are currently 13th with 24 points from 22 matches - eight points away from the danger zone. However, the second half of January was really bad as they won just one point in four games in all competitions.

After years of being among the best teams in Spain, Sevilla had a terrible last season in La Liga, finishing 11th. However, they impressed in Europe and won the Europa League, allowing them to play in the Champions League. However, this season, Sevilla are having another bad season as they finished the UCL Group phase as the 4th placed team, and in La Liga, they are 16th - only one point away from the relegation zone. 

Rayo Vallecano vs Sevilla pick: Both teams to score

Rayo Vallecano are in poor form, with just one point in the last four games. They are having problems offensively this season, as they scored 19 goals in 22 rounds. However, we believe they are more than capable of scoring against Sevilla, which are in terrible form. On the other hand, even though Rayo have been solid defensively overall, that was not the case at home. In ten home games, they have kept a clean sheet just twice!

Sevilla are in poor form as well, with one point in the last three games. Throughout the season, they had massive problems defensively, and with 36 allowed goals in 22 rounds, they are the third-worst defense team in La Liga. Additionally, for this game, they will miss key central defenders due to injuries and suspension. On the other hand, Sevilla are good offensively. In the last six games, they scored at least one goal on five occasions. 

In the previous h2h game in October, we saw a 2:2 draw. Considering the previous h2h game and all the above, we believe that both teams to score is the best bet for this tie.

Rayo Vallecano team news

An attacking winger, Bebe, is playing for Cape Verde in the ongoing AFCON and is unavailable for the Sevilla game. However, he was mostly a backup option this season, and the team will not miss him too much. On the other hand, midfielder Pathe Ciss should return on time from AFCON following Senegal's elimination a few days ago. 

Due to injury, the team will miss Diego Mendez, who already missed the previous four games.

Unai Lopez served his one-game suspension in the previous game and should return to the starting lineup.

Sevilla team news

An important midfielder/winger, Suso, received a red card in the previous game vs Osasuna and will be unavailable for the upcoming match. Additionally, Sergio Ramos collected his fifth yellow card and will also serve his suspension. 

Due to injuries, the team will miss Mariano Diaz, Erik Lamela, Dodi Lukebakio, and Kike Rooms. Also, Nemanja Gudelj suffered a major injury, and according to Serbian media, the 32-year-old defender is considering finishing his career. 

The team's top goalscorer, Youssef En-Nesyri, played in AFCON, but considering Morocco was eliminated from the competition, the 26-year-old striker should be ready for the upcoming match against Rayo Vallecano.
