It has been a solid start to the new La Liga season for Rayo Vallecano, as they currently sit in the European spot. They will be looking to continue their unbeaten streak in the competition on Saturday when they come up against Mallorca.
La Liga Preview
Rayo Vallecano will be delighted with the start to the season that they have made in the Spanish top flight this term. They come into this fixture sitting sixth in the standings, and they will be aware that a victory on Saturday could see them end the round in the Champions League spots.
Vallecano should be in good confidence ahead of this home fixture, as they have avoided defeat in each of their last three matches. They already boast one of the better defensive records in the competition, as they have allowed just nine goals across their matches to this point. However, draws may become an issue for the team, as they have played out ties in each of their last two. Their most recent stalemate came in the form of a 0-0 draw against Cadiz on Wednesday night.
Mallorca will be the visitors this weekend, as they look to record just a second victory in the Spanish top flight this term. They come into this fixture sitting 15th in the standings, but they could drop into the relegation places if they suffer defeat on the road and other results go against them this weekend.
Mallorca will be hoping to end a poor run of recent form, as they have failed to win across their last two matches. However, they did pick up a point in their most recent league fixture, as they held Barcelona to an entertaining 2-2 draw. Mallorca’s goals in that match were netted by Vedat Muriqi and Abdon Prats.Bet here
