Rayo Vallecano vs Levante: prediction for the La Liga fixture
Rayo Vallecano got off to a perfect start in the current La Liga season after the return from Segunda, but eventually results started to decline. Team also enjoyed a relatively successful Spanish Cup run, reaching the quarterfinals of the competition. At this stage team was stopped by the eventual winner of that tournament.
