A common characteristic of recent Rayo Vallecano games is the high number of scores with a nil in them.
From their previous 6 matches before this one, in 5 of them a wager on BTTS would have been a losing one. That being said, we must now wait to see if the trend might persist in this upcoming match or not.
Going into this one, Rayo Vallecano are undefeated in their previous 9 home league matches. Visiting teams have certainly not had an easy time of it here.
Following on from tasting defeat last time out to UD Almería in La Liga 2 action, Fuenlabrada will be aiming to make amends here.
In that match, Fuenlabrada had 43% possession and 8 attempts on goal with 2 on target. For their opponents, UD Almería had 9 attempts at goal with 5 of them on target. José Corpas (42', 64', 76') was the scorer for UD Almería.
The forward players for Fuenlabrada have suffered from a shortage of goals in their past six games, recording the unsatisfactory return of only 4. In those matches, Fuenla have also seen the overall goal tally against them equal 5.
Going into this contest, Fuenlabrada are without a win away from home in their last 2 league games.

Looking at personnel, there is just the lone fitness concern for the Rayo Vallecano gaffer Andoni Iraola to be concerned with from of an almost fully healthy group. Antoñín (Knee Problems) will miss out.
Team News: Fuenlabrada
Owing to a fully injury-free squad to choose from, Fuenlabrada boss José Sandoval has zero fitness concerns at all before this game.
We’re of the opinion that Fuenlabrada will need to push hard to score against this Rayo Vallecano team who we reckon should manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
Therefore, we predict a hard-fought 1-0 victory for Rayo Vallecano after 90 minutes.
There should be little in it.
