Analysis of Barcelona

Barcelona’s quality is visible, it is not by chance that Messi and entourage are considered one of the best teams in the world.

The midfield will probably be composed by Iniesta, Mascherano and Xavi with the possibility of Rakitic taking the first one’s place.

Up top, Messi, Suarez and Neymar, three stars that spell doom to any opposing team with their technical prowess.

Against Rayo the team will surely maintain their suffocating type of highly technical football, favoring ball possession and quick passing. 

Confirmed Lineup: C. Bravo, Piqué, Dani Alves, J. Mathieu, Jordi Alba, J. Mascherano, Iniesta, L. Suárez, L. Messi, Pedro.
Coach: Xavi, Luis Enrique.

Analysis of Rayo Vallecano

The French Kakuta and the Portuguese Licá are the wingers of Rayo, two speedy players with excellent 1v1 capabilities. They will have the responsibility of feeding Manucho up front. The Angolan striker is not a technical portent but can still make an impact through sheer physicality.

Leo might be playing up front as well in order to rest the usual starter Manucho.

Jemez team has notable difficulties in several of its processes, although sometimes they can make some beautiful plays.

Bueno is another player who will be wanting to maintain his form having scored a poker on a 15 minute interval on their last match against Levante.

Confirmed Lineup: C. Álvarez, Antonio Amaya, Tito, A. Ba, E. Insúa, G. Kakuta, Jozabed , Roberto Trashorras, Léo Baptistão, Bueno, Licá.
Coach: Paco Jémez.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for this match is the appearance of goals. Taking into account the scoring potential of Barca’s team, it is expectable that Rayo concede a good number of goals.
