Europe Games La Liga Spain

Match preview, prediction: Rayo Vallecano – Real Madrid


Sunday February 18, 2024, 13.30 GMT (14.00 CET), Estadio de Vallecas

Rayo Vallecano:

  • Undergoing a change in management after Andoni Iraola’s departure.
  • Struggling for consistency with recent defeats, but known for their tenacity and attacking intent.
  • Key players: Isi Palazón, Álvaro García, Radamel Falcao (doubtful)

Real Madrid:

  • Riding a winning streak and looking to maintain their lead in the La Liga title race.
  • Boasting a strong squad with depth, but facing injury concerns to some key players.
  • Key players: Rodrygo, Vinicius Jr., Luka Modrić


This is an intriguing matchup between two contrasting styles. Rayo will likely look to press high and attack with pace, while Real Madrid will aim to control the game with their technical superiority. The outcome could hinge on Rayo’s ability to capitalize on their chances and Real Madrid’s ability to navigate potential defensive lapses.

Possible scoreline: Rayo Vallecano 1-2 Real Madrid
