Rayo Vallecano – Getafe Match Preview

  • Sergi Guardiola’s second top-flight goal in 12 months snatched Rayo Vallecano their first away point of this La Liga (LL) season, but it was not enough to save them from a fifth consecutive LL campaign in which they won just one of their opening four games. Whilst it’s early days, that’s a concern given that each of Vallecano’s last two LL seasons ended in relegation.
  • The hosts earned nearly two-thirds of their LL points from their last stint in the division at home, and will be hoping a 4-0 demolition of Granada in late August – just their second clean sheet from their last 15 home games in all competitions – will be the beginning of an inspiring home run.
  • In more ways than one, Getafe have picked up from where they left off in the 2020/21 campaign with seven of their last nine LL fixtures ending in defeat by a one-goal margin – including all four matches this term. They’re now looking to avoid succumbing to a trend which has seen five of the last seven LL clubs to start the season with four defeats go on and suffer relegation!
  • Heading into this round, the visitors are the club with the worst shooting accuracy (15.38%) in LL, therefore it’s little wonder that they’ve secured the joint-fewest goals (one) after four matchdays. They’ll need to try and fix that here or risk starting a LL season with five consecutive defeats for the very first time!
  • Players to watch: Álvaro García was the earliest of Vallecano’s four goalscorers in their previous LL home fixture, while Getafe’s Jaime Mata opened the scoring in the last H2H back in 2018/19.
  • Hot stat: Just one of the 19 H2Hs this century finished in a draw.
