Espanyol's defensive tenacity has been on display very seldom in recent games. Actually, Espanyol's defense has been broken into in 5 of their last 6 matches, resulting in 10 goals conceded.
Prematch analysis shows that Espanyol has not beaten Rayo Vallecano in their last four league matches, while Rayo Vallecano is unbeaten in their last two home league matches. They haven't won a league game at home in three straight.
After playing to a scoreless draw in their previous La Liga match against Barcelona, Rayo Vallecano will be looking to get back on track here.
Andoni Iraola's Rayo Vallecano have scored 5 times in their last 6 matches, good for an average of 0.83 goals per game.
Looking at their prior results, Rayo Vallecano has not won on the road in the last three league matches and has lost their last two meetings against Espanyol. We expect goals from both sides in this match.
