Real Madrid to win and both teams to score @ 7/4
Real Madrid suffered major disappointment in the Champions League semi-final, losing 4-0 to Manchester City in the second leg to crash out of the competition in brutal fashion.
Los Blancos had already lost out on the La Liga title to arch rivals Barcelona so will have to console themselves with the Copa Del Rey trophy as their sole silverware for the season.
Ancelotti’s men followed their loss to Manchester City up with another defeat at the hands of Valencia back in La Liga, losing their grip on second place to rivals Atletico Madrid in the process.
Now Real will be looking to bounce back against Rayo Vallecano, who could still sneak a European spot despite sitting 11th thanks to the congested nature of the race for the top seven.
The visitors have been in poor form however, losing three of their last four matches.
They have netted in their last three though, and with the Madrid backline not looking as solid as it can do, they could land on the scoresheet.
Both teams have found the net in seven of Real Madrid’s 12 home wins this season and the same is fancied when this pair face off.
Real Madrid to win 2-1 @ 7/1
Rayo Vallecano are fancied to get on the scoresheet in this clash but they may struggle to get anything more than that.
Ancelotti’s side are the top scorers in La Liga this season but have only scored more than once in one of their last six games so it looks unlikely that they will hammer their opponents.
Three of Vallecano’s last five defeats have been by a 2-1 scoreline and a repeat of that looks a live runner here.
