Soccer Prediction for 16 December 2018 – Real Madrid vs. Rayo Vallecano

Defeats at home from the middle of nowhere, CSKA Moscow made a hard slap for Real Madrid after previously recording good results. Indeed, they still qualify for the last 16 of the Champions League with the status of group winners, but defeat at home with a landslide score of 0-3 is a shame, especially in the event of the Champions League.

Even so, the Santiago Solari’s landing squad must forget the defeat and focus again on the party that is no less heavy in continued La Liga this weekend. In the 16th Jornada, Madrid will face Rayo Vallecano where the party will take place on Sunday night, December 16, 2018 at Santiago Bernabeu.

Yes, Real Madrid have just been humiliated by CSKA Moscow at home with a landslide final score of 0-3, where in fact it was their first defeat in their last five parties, because the European Champions League defending champions had successfully packed four wins in a row. On paper, Real Madrid is far superior, especially the fact that they are also eyeing the victory to approach the top of the standings which are occupied by eternal rivals, Barcelona.

Los Blancos sit in 4th place at the moment, 5 points behind Barcelona on the standings. Meanwhile, Rayo Vallecano lagged far behind in the 19th place by only collecting 10 points from 15 parties that have taken place.
