  • Both teams have scored in seven of Vallecano’s last eight away matches
  • Vallecano have won just once on the road in La Liga this season

Villarreal struggling for consistency

An impressive 3-2 win at Atalanta in the UEFA Conference League on Wednesday signaled a welcome return to form for Unai Emery’s side, who had lost three of their previous four games.

They sit in 13th place in La Liga, and a large reason for the lowly position is a leaky defence who, after a run of three 0-0 draws in the opening four matches, have kept just three clean sheets in eleven games.

Two of those shut-outs came at home, while they have only failed to score in one home match this year, an opening day 0-0 stalemate with Granada.

Both teams have scored in three of their last four at home and a repeat could well be on the cards here.

Vallecano’s poor away form

Rayo Vallecano have surprised many people with their start to the season as they currently sit in sixth place in La Liga, nine points better off than Villarreal.

However, 22 of the 27 points have come on home soil as they have registered just one win, to go with five defeats and two draws, on the road.

This is, like their opponents, largely down to some poor defending. They have not kept an away clean sheet since being promoted back to the top flight in the summer, conceding 13 times in eight matches.

Equally, they do have a habit of hitting the back of the net, with both teams scoring in seven of their last eight games, but they struggle to get results over the line.

I think both teams will score again in this one, but Villarreal will nick the points courtesy of a 2-1 correct score prediction.
