Rayo Vallecano vs Barcelona – Copa del Rey Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction

Round of 16 knockout encounter, with Rayo Vallecano taking on Barcelona on Wednesday the 27th of January, 2021, at Estadio de Vallecas.

Rayo Vallecano have already eliminated three teams this season in Copa del Rey, registering all three victories in the last six weeks. Back in December, they beat Teruel 2-3 away from home, in extra time. Early January they beat Haro Deportivo as well, 1-3, and last but most certainly not least, 11 days ago they beat Elche at home, 2-0, a “special” qualification, as it was a top division team they kicked out. They last played on Saturday, they lost 1-3 at home to Mallorca, their first defeat in nine(!) matches. Their current form reads; LWWWW. They are on 37 points from 22 games in Spain’s second division, 4th in the table, eight points behind leaders Espanyol. They have 11W, 4D and 7L, having scored 25 goals (not much more than one per game), and conceded 18. Coach Andoni Iraola played a 4-2-3-1 formation against Mallorca, with Bebé up front. It was Peruvian Advíncula who scored their only goal.

Unlike Rayo Vallecano, Barcelona joined the Copa del Rey competition less than a week ago, their trip to Cornellà was their first test in the “King’s Cup” this season, and if you follow the news from Spain you must already know that the Blaugrana needed extra time(!) to beat their very modest rivals, 0-2. Dembélé opened the scoring in the 92nd minute, and Braithwaite made it 0-2 in added time, with the hosts having lost a player to a red card right before that. Barcelona last played on Sunday, they beat Elche 0-2 away from home. Their current form reads; WWLWW. They are on 37 points from 19 matches, third in the table, 10 whole points behind leaders Atlético, and having played one game more than them. They have 11W, 4D and 4L in La Liga, with 39 goals scored and 17 conceded. Coach Ronald Koeman played a 4-3-3 formation against Elche. De Jong and Riqui Puig scored their goals.

Barcelona last visited Rayo in November 2018. They won that La Liga game, 2-3. In March 2019 they hosted their modest rivals from Vallecas, and beat them again, 3-1.

A 0-2 victory for the visitors is predicted at full-time.

Date: Wednesday, 27th of January, 2021.

Venue: Estadio de Vallecas

Kick-off time: 21:00 (GMT+2).
