at the Wanda Metropolitano Counting towards the 2nd round of La Liga.
Atlético de Madrid finished in 2nd place of La Liga with 79 points conquered, thanks to a record of 23 victories, 10 draws and 5 losses.
Their goals’ record tells us they counted with 58 goals scored and 22 goals conceded, presenting an average of 2.1 goals per match.
It was playing in front of their own crowd that the Colchoneros managed to get more points, having only suffered 1 loss on the last 16 matches they’ve played at the Wanda Metropolitano.
The team started off with the right foot on official matches, winning the European Super Cup against Real Madrid (4-2), but they couldn’t get more than 1 draw against Valencia at the Mestalla, on the 1st round of La Liga.

Atlético de Madrid vs Rayo Vallecano – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Atlético’s favouritism is so clear that the odds are completely crushed in their favour. I believe there is value in exploring the goalscorers’ market, namely for Diego Costa to score.
Rayo Vallecano is a team that defends very poorly, and even last year, where they’ve won the title of the 2nd division, the team presented the 2nd worst defence amongst the top 9 teams, which is a clear sign of their defensive weakness.
Of the men Atlético have up front, Diego Costa is the one that seems to be on a better moment of form, having inclusively scored a brace on the European Super Cup against Real Madrid.
Rayo’s central defence doesn’t inspire confidence, and I remind that even André Silva, who hasn’t been scoring much, scored a hat-trick on the first round against the men from Vallecas.
