Atlético Madrid will be looking to extend their impressive home winning streak to 12 matches when they host Rayo Vallecano on Wednesday night.
The Rojiblancos are currently in third place in La Liga, just two points behind Real Madrid in second. They have won their last four matches in all competitions, including a 2-0 victory over Valencia on Sunday.
Atlético have not conceded a goal in their last three matches, and they have been particularly strong at home this season, winning 10 of their 11 matches at the Metropolitano Stadium.
Rayo Vallecano are currently in 13th place in La Liga, but they have been in good form of late, winning four of their last six matches.
The Madrid-based side have been particularly strong away from home this season, winning four of their five away matches.
Players to Watch
Atlético striker Álvaro Morata has been in good form this season, scoring 10 goals in 13 appearances. He has scored at least two goals in five of his last 13 matches, including a brace in Atlético’s 7-0 win over Rayo in the first leg of their league meeting.
Rayo forward Sergio Camello is also in good form, scoring four goals in his last six appearances. He scored a brace in Rayo’s 2-0 win over Getafe last week.
Atlético have a record of 12 wins and 1 draw in 13 matches this season when they have scored the first goal.
Atlético are the clear favorites for this match, and they should be able to extend their home winning streak. I’m predicting a 2-1 victory for the Rojiblancos.
