Mirandes and Rayo Vallecano to Draw at Half Time
Although Rayo Vallecano has been fantastic in La Liga this season, we can see Rayo Vallecano struggling in this duel since they lost two of their last three games in the league.
So, we are not sure how this game could end up, despite leaning toward Rayo Vallecano winning. However, we do expect a close game and we can see the teams being tied at half time.
Under 2.5 Total Goals
Although both teams are averaging more than 2.5 goals per game in their prospective leagues, we don't expect this to be a high-scoring match after all.
One of the reasons lies in the fact that teams are often more careful in cup games since one mistake can be very costly. Secondly, the last three h2h duels between Mirandes and Rayo Vallecano have gone under 2.5 total goals.
