VIL vs RVL Dream11 Prediction for Villarreal vs Rayo Vallecano La Liga Live Score Fantasy Football Tips & Dream11 Team


VIL vs RVL Dream11: Villarreal come into this on the back of an extremely impressive clutch victory away to Atalanta on Thursday in their rearranged UEFA Champions League tie to see The Yellow Submarine and UEFA Europa League holders into the UCL knockout stages. Unai Emery’s side, though, sit in the bottom-half of the table after a difficult campaign thus far with way too many draws once again blighting an Emery team. Rayo Vallecano have been exceptional themselves sitting tucked inside the European spots ahead of this weekend’s round fixtures, following promotion last season. Rayo have been reliant on an almost perfect home record, though, so could find it difficult to translate that form on the road. A double chance bet in favour of the home team would appear sensible for this one.

Who will win today’s football match?

  • Rayo are in excellent form, sitting in sixth place and still defying the odds having only achieved promotion back to the top flight last season.
  • Rayo continued their excellent home for last time out with a 1-0 win over Espanyol, and they now have the best home record in the league with seven wins from eight games.
  • In contrast, they are near the bottom of the away table, winning just one of their eight games on the road, and they might well leave empty-handed here given their away troubles and Villarreal’s need to get their season back on track.

Odds to Win:

The odds in favor of a Villarreal win in this clash is 2.45 as per bet365.
