La Liga action on Friday night live from the Estadio De Rayo Vallecano as the home team host Espanyol in what should be a free slowing game of football. Rayo Vallecano sometimes get slated for their style of football they occasionally get hammered by Barcelona and Real Madrid because tehy refuse to play defensively and they try to go out and play against the big boys with the same swash buckling attitude they have in every game. Quite simply put its great to watch and another reason to tune into this game on Friday night. With Guerra , Bebe , Fedor this side will just go and attack Espanyol, it's what they do and it's a breath of fresh air in a game that has become more and more cynical over the years.
While Espanyol are definitely more cynical than Vallecano I think that they too have shown a good propensity to attack this season and six of their eight games this year have gone over 2.5 goals. Espanyol though have been on the receiving end of a couple of losses where perhaps defence may have been better than all out attack. With a young side sprinkled with experience though Espanyol are a fun team to watch and with one of Spains most exciting playmakers in their ranks in Marco Asensio this is a team that are going to cause plenty of problems for teams in spain throughout the season. Former Manchester City player Caicedo has matured into a fine striker and leading the line for Espanyol he has been excellent this season.
Taking the overs here. I just love the way both teams are attack minded, obviously there are games where teams just cancel each other out and they end up in 0-0 draws but I dont think we see that here in fact i wouldnt be surprised if we have more than 2.5 goals by half time. Take the overs here and sit back and enjoy and attacking game of ball from La Liga.
