Real Madrid to tighten their grip on La Liga title?

Real Madrid have faced a tough battle to fully secure top spot in La Liga this season, but not from the usual suspects. While Barcelona and Atletico Madrid are down in third and fourth, respectively, and some way off the pace, it is Girona that have been the surprise package this season, sitting top of the table for much of it.

However, Los Blancos dealt what may well be a decisive blow in the title race last week, beating the surprise challengers by a dominant 4-0 scoreline thanks to goals from Vincius Jr, Rodrygo and two from, yes you guessed it, Jude Bellingham.

Incredibly, that’s just the second league game Girona have lost all season, with both coming against Real Madrid, who have notched up a 7-0 combined scoreline against them.

Real Madrid have perfectly taken the title race into their own hands with those two huge results. Now, it’s all about seeing the job through, starting with this tricky away trip to 14th-place Rayo Vallecano.

Rayo Vallecano vs Real Madrid match tip

Vinicius Jr to score or assist @ 8/11 with Sky Bet

With no Jude Bellingham here due to injury, Vinicius Jr will shoulder more of Real Madrid’s attacking burden. The Brazilian has six direct goal involvements in his last four La Liga appearances (three goals, three assists).

It’ll come as no surprise that Real Madrid are heavy favourites in this tie given they sit five points clear atop La Liga with just one league defeat to their name all season. However, Rayo Vallecano have sprung a few surprises against Los Blancos in recent years, so the result is not set in stone for Carlo Ancelotti’s men.
