Man Utd vs Rayo Vallecano score prediction

Man Utd have had a stellar pre-season so far, and Ten Hag will want to make an impression on his first outing at Old Trafford.

Rayo Vallecano are a decent side and won't be pushovers, but the Red Devils have shown enough progress this summer to convince us that they'll be leaving the stadium Sunday evening with hope for the future.

Prediction: Man Utd 4-1 Rayo Vallecano
