La Liga action on Friday night as a struggling Eibar host inform Rayo Vallecano. Vallecano have won three of their last four but all have been home fixtures, away from home Rayo Vallecano have lost four straight and will see this game as an opportunity to pick up a rare away win. Rayo are heavily reliant on Bueno up front as his fifteen goals this season are a team leader and accounts for almost half of the teams goals this season as they have struggled on that end, scoring only thirty three in total this year. The partnership of Baptistao and Bueno has been a profitable one for Vallecano and they will hope to take advantage of an Eibar defence that has had big struggles in recent weeks.
Eibar have lost four of their last five and they themselves will be hoping to turn it around on Friday night. Eibar have struggled to score goals this season with only twenty six goals in twenty eight games this season. Eibar have though been tough to beat and have only conceded thirty eight through the season which is twelve less that Rayo Vallecano. Clearly Eibar's biggest problems are up front. With top scorer Piovaccari and Arruabarena struggling with only ten goals between them this season it has fallen to the midfield to chip in but unfortunately they have not been able to fill the void left by the lack of a top class striker.
This one could go either way and I am wary of taking the inform Rayo Vallecano as I think their away form is too patchy. Eibar could sneak this one at home but I think the unders are a solid bet here. Eibar dont concede many and also dont score many always a good combination for the unders. While Rayo Vallecano do have some defensive issues I think they will be looking for a solid away performance one that is more defensive as they were hammered 6-1 by Barcelona in their last away game.
