Almeria vs Rayo Vallecano Predictions and Tips by Football Ground Guide
It is the first game of the season for both Almeria and Rayo Vallecano and here is how we have tipped the teams to perform on matchday:
Team to Score First Prediction: Almeria to Score First
It is the season opener and with home support, Almeria are our favourite to open the lead in this game. They have the defensive form after bagging three clean sheets in five pre-season outings. On the flip side, Rayo Vallecano failed to get a clean sheet in five pre-season matches. With that, our first Almeria vs Rayo Vallecano prediction is the home team to score the opener.
Half-Time Result Prediction: Half-Time Almeria
In another Almeria vs Rayo Vallecano prediction, we expect the hosts to lead at the break. With a strong defensive performance expected from Almeria, we equally expect them to lead at the interval. An early goal is the only way to get an edge in this season opener, so there is a good chance Almeria will not only score first but also win the first half.
Team to Score Prediction: Both Teams to Score
In our final Almeria vs Rayo Vallecano prediction, we are backing both teams to score. Apart from scoring in three of their last away games, Rayo Vallecano found the back of the net in every pre-season game. We expect at least a goal from the visitors too.
