Tip Reasoning

  • Real Madrid have kept back-to-back clean sheets at home in La Liga
  • Rayo Vallecano have scored just five goals in six away league matches.
  • Real Madrid have won 10 straight meetings when hosting Rayo Vallecano.

No hangover here

Real Madrid have won two of their three domestic matches the weekend following their Champions League outings and Carlo Ancelotti’s side will be aiming to keep pace at the top of La Liga with three points here.

Madrid are second, just one point off top spot, albeit with a game in hand and have won four of their last five games in all competitions. Los Blancos are unbeaten in three league matches and should extend that run given that they have won 10 straight meetings at home to Vallecano.

Madrid are unbeaten at home in La Liga since January with only Sheriff Tiraspol leaving with a win during that time.

Away days holding Rayo back

Much has been made of the impressive start that the returning Rayo Vallecano have had to La Liga.

They are sitting 6th in the table with 20 points but have been beaten four times away from home already.

The Red Sashes were relegated from the top-flight during the 2018/19 season finishing bottom and losing 14 of their 19 away fixtures during that campaign.

Rayo secured a memorable 1-0 win at home to Barcelona last week for their sixth victory of the season, however, five of those have come at home.

On the road, Andoni Iraola’s team have lost four of their six matches and have struggled to score on their travels.

Comfortable win expected

The visitors have scored an average of just 0.8 goals per game away from home compared to more than two a game when hosting. Meanwhile, Madrid have conceded just three goals in four league matches at the Bernabeu.

Vallecano were beaten to-nil by the two teams either side of Madrid, in the table, earlier this season and we expect them to have similar issues here so a 2-0 home win seems viable.
