Villarreal vs Rayo Vallecano: prediction for the La Liga fixture
Villarreal earned three points in the most recent match. Will the Valencians secure a victory in a game against Rayo Vallecano on January 30? The answer is in our prediction.
This week, Villarreal didn't play in Copa del Rey - team got eliminated by Real Madrid in the previous round, despite having a 1:0 lead for some time. That match not only ended team's path in Copa del Rey, but also became the first one, which the Yellows lost after opening a scoresheet. The Yellow Submarine are trying to reach the 4th spot, which will let them to play in the next edition of the Champions League.
The Yellows are also still in the Conference League competition. They finished first in the group stage, beating Lech and Austria.

Rayo Vallecano are trying to reach the Top-6 of La Liga. They didn't play in European competitions since 2000/01 season. Team had some solid results in the current season: a victory over Real, draws against Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.
However, team is not so successful after the return from the World Cup break. Club sits mid-table, but theVallecansare still a threat to any La Liga team. After 18 matches team has seven victories and five draws, delivering 26 points and a 9th position in the standings.
