Rayo Vallecano take on Getafe on Monday night with Getafe looking to put an end to a four games slide which has seen them concede thirteen goals and lose four on the bounce. Getafe were hammered by both Atletic Club and Barcelona but apart from that they played quite well in losses to fellow strugglers Granada and Levante. Getafe have really struggled to score goals all season though and they are in danger of falling into the relegation battle although it really is an outside chance as they are five points clear of the drop zone. A draw tonight would probably ensure safety for Getafe and given their current struggles for goals I expect an uber defensive focus tonight.
Rayo Vallecano are stuck in that mid table mediocrity with little chance of going higher up the table and no chance of being relegated. It is quite possible that mentally the team has already checked out of this season but they will want to put in a performance for the home crowd. With Beuno and Baptistau though they have viable goal threats and if the chances are created they should be taken. Rayo Vallecano have been string at home winning five of their last seven and drawing last time out against Valencia.
A draw would suit both teams tonight and as such getting 11/4 about the result looks a very solid bet. I'm taking the draw here.
