Real Valladolid plays host to Rayo Vallecano at the Estadio Municipal José Zorrilla in a tricky-looking Primera Division match against Rayo on Saturday.

Rayo have enjoyed a better season thus far, and they arrive in Valladolid six points ahead of their opponents, who find themselves down in 15th, just two points above the drop zone.

Real Valladolid vs Rayo Vallecano Betting Tips: Draw

An analysis of the statistics for this La Liga fixture reveals little, with both sides in somewhat inconsistent form in both the goal markets and WDW selections.

Hosts Valladolid had won three in a row at the Estadio Municipal José Zorrilla prior to a recent 2:0 loss against champions Real Madrid. However, they have now lost four of their last five league matches since the end of October and have no recent form to speak of.

Likewise, visiting Rayo have failed to win any of four matches played since their return to action in mid-December. Having suffered a shock Copa Del Rey exit against Sporting Gijon, Rayo would next suffer a home loss against Betis.

On the road, Rayo are unbeaten in their last three away league matches, while five of their last six on their travels have seen BTTS. However, that outcome has not been a regular feature of Valladolid´s matches this season, with only two of their nine most recent league games producing that outcome.

A fixture where nothing really jumps out from a betting perspective with both sides in poor form and inconsistent in goal markets, we´re going to sit on the fence and go with a draw here. Valladolid had shown some signs of home improvements before their loss to Real, while Rayo are unbeaten in their last three away La Liga matches. In addition, 6 of the last 14 matches between these sides finished deadlocked. 

While by no means a banker, the goal market stats are inconclusive, and while BTTS has a chance, we prefer to take the draw option in what should prove a tight fixture at the Estadio Municipal José Zorrilla.
