Elche and Rayo Vallecano to Draw

After a stellar first half of the season in La Liga, Rayo Vallecano is now in a very bad form with four losses in the last five games. On the other hand, Elche has three wins in the last five matches.

Still, Rayo Vallecano had some amazing performances this season and we find it hard to bet against them. So, a draw in this game sounds like the most realistic outcome.

Elche vs Rayo Vallecano – Team news, form, and potential lineups

The two teams are very close to each other in the standings, so this can be a very exciting game. Let's take a closer look at both teams:

Elche

The team that spent most of the first half of the season in the relegation zone is now on a good run and they are getting further and further away from any relegation talk. Elche has three wins, two draws, and just one loss in the last six games and they are currently in the 14th spot in the standings, six points away from the first team in the relegation zone.

Elche will again be without Lucas Boye due to an injury, while Helibelton Palacios is also unavailable with a hamstring problem he picked up against Sevilla. Other than that, Elche has no further personnel problems.

Elche predicted lineup:

Badia – Barragan, Roco, Verdu, Mojica – Morente, Mascarell, Gumbau, Fidel – Carrillo, Milla

Rayo Vallecano

The team that was in the battle for a spot in European competitions just a few weeks ago now dropped down the standings to the 11th place after losing four of their last five games. Still, Rayo Vallecano can be pleased with their season so far since they are, after all, a newly-promoted team. On top of that, the team also reached the semi-final of Copa del Rey and while they did lose the first leg against Real Betis, they still have a chance to reach the final.

The team from Madrid will be will be without Martin Merquelanz once again, while Unai Lopez and Jose Pozo are questionable with injury and coronavirus.

Rayo Vallecano predicted lineup:

Dimitrievski – Balliu, Saveljich, Catena, Rodrigues – Valentin, Comesana – Palazon, Trejo, A. Garcia – Guardiola
