ATL vs RVL Dream11 Prediction for Atletico Madrid vs Rayo Vallecano La Liga Live Score Fantasy Football Tips & Dream11 Team

Share

ATL vs RVL Dream11: These two clubs share an affiliation that dates nearly 90 years since Rayo Vallecano’s formation. Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid have struggled this season as El Cholo’s aggressive and defensive style of play does not necessarily fit well with the plethora of attacking options as his disposal. They now come up against a Rayo side that have been exceptional this season but heavily reliant on their home form. The visitors are also struggling with several COVID-19 positive cases so Atleti should win this one.
