A rough start to the season has left Almeria just above the relegation zone but a home game against Rayo Vallecano could lead Almeria up the table if they can get a win. The problem for Almeria this season has been pretty obvious with only nine goals scored in twelve games. The main problems are obviously upfront where Almeria just havent had a striker that has gained any traction. Almeria stopped a run of four consequtive defeats last weekend with a 0-0 draw at Granada. Can the home side build on there solid defence and get a much needed win?
With three losses in the last five, Rayo Vallecano have struggled of late but what they have done this season is pick up wins against the lower down teams. Vallecano has two away wins this season against Levante and Granada, those types of wins are essential to keep Vallecano up the table , this game against Almeria represents another chance for Vallecano against a struggling team. With Beuno and Baptistao both finding the net every second game this could be a good opportunity for Vallecano to get a win here.
With Almeria's problems up front I just cant comfortably take them here as favourites. At 2/1 Rayo Vallecano look the value here and I will be taking Vallecano to get the win.
