Rayo Vallecano vs Lugo PREVIEW & PREDICTION 27/05/2018


The local team starts slightly as a favorite due to the collective and offensive potential that it has, which has allowed it to be one step away from the direct ascent. For this reason and even when he lost to Córdoba in his last presentation, we believe that his simple win is attractive to consider in this opportunity. Remember that the visit does not fight for anything in this exit, as it is far from the descent and the playoff zone.

Rayo Vallecano:

The team lost 4-0 to Alcorcón unexpectedly and extended one more date their longed for promotion to the first division. These days, he has 73 points in the general table, taking 5 of advantage to Sporting de Gijón with only 2 dates left to finish the regular season. Of course, the team needs to react and cut the losing streak after losing 2 games consecutively. Despite this downturn, it remains a tactical and competitive midfielder on the forward side thanks to its collective style.

As a local, Rayo Vallecano has added acceptable results throughout the championship, except for some other setback such as suffered against Córdoba a short time ago (1-2). Before this unexpected fall, he had beaten Reus 3-2, tied 1-1 with Cádiz, outscored Zaragoza 2-1 and defeated Tenerife 3-1. He has scored 40 goals and yielded 23 on his fence, proving to be an effective and somewhat balanced on this condition.


The team lost 0-2 against Lugo as a local, staying with 54 units in total. The team has shown problems to win one or more matches in the competition, standing out by tying many in the last weeks. At the moment is located in the twelfth position of the League2, no longer fighting for nothing to be saved from the decline and having no chance to fight to qualify for the playoffs. Of course, it remains an uncomfortable opponent to face.

As a visitor, Lugo has registered different scores after winning 5 matches, matching another 5 and losing the remaining 10 that he played in this condition (16 goals scored and 30 received in his goal). His last departures were as follows: 1-0 loss to Córdoba, 3-0 loss to Nástic, 2-0 defeat to Numancia, 1-1 draw with Osasuna and parity 1-1 against Cultural Leonesa.

The last time the two teams collided was a few months ago and the result was favorable for Rayo Vallecano as a visitor (1-2). In Vallecas, the local team won 2-0 in April 2017.

PREDICTION: Over 2.5 goals @ 1.62
