Rayo Vallecano and Leganes to Draw

It’s hard to predict what can happen in this game since the teams are so evenly matched. Leganes has been in better form at the end of the season since they’ve been without a loss in the last eight games. Meanwhile, Rayo Vallecano is playing at home in the first leg and that is certainly an advantage. Meanwhile, the two games between them this season in Segunda have ended in a draw and a Leganes win, but the guests are dealing with some injuries at the moment. All this taken into account suggests that we could see a draw in this game.

Rayo Vallecano and Leganes to Draw at Half Time

Since we expect a draw in the end, our prediction is also a draw at halftime. After all, both teams have gone into the second half after a draw in the first in the majority of their Segunda matches. For example, Rayo Vallecano has drawn at halftime in 9 of their 21 home games in the league, while Leganes has done the same in 12 of their 21 away games this season.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

It’s a bit risky to bet on both teams to score in Spanish Segunda since goals are scarce in this league, especially since this is the playoffs and we can expect teams to be even more cautious and conservative in their approach. However, both teams have scored in three of the last five games between Rayo Vallecano and Leganes, so we hope that this trend can continue. During the regular season, both teams have scored in 43% of Rayo Vallecano games, while the same happened in 40% of Leganes matches.

Rayo Vallecano vs Leganes preview: A very close duel ahead

Both teams have experienced playing in La Liga recently, so they are certainly hoping for another chance in the Spanish top-flight. With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at both teams.

Rayo Vallecano

The team from Madrid barely got into the playoffs for the last spot in La Liga, but that doesn’t mean that they have any less chance than the other teams since all teams are pretty close in points and in quality. Rayo Vallecano finished the season with three wins, three draws, and two losses in the last eight league games, so they’ve been a bit inconsistent lately. On the bright side, only Montiel and Ulloa are on their injury list, but they are not yet ruled out of the upcoming game.

Leganes

Even though Leganes finished the season in third place, they were far from getting a direct promotion to La Liga and closer to other teams in the playoffs in terms of points. That being said, the team did finish the season with eight games in a row without a loss, with four wins and four draws, so they can be pretty optimistic regarding the playoffs. However, Leganes is also dealing with some injuries at the moment – Omeruo and Arnaiz are probably out, while Shibasaki, Baston, and Lasure are under question for the first leg.
