Osasuna – Rayo Vallecano Match Preview

  • Two pre-season relegation contenders have worked their way into the top half of the 2021/22 La Liga (LL) with some surprising performances. Osasuna have continued to shock the competition by saving their best football for the road in what, despite a winless home record (D2, L2), remains their most fruitful start to a top-flight season since a top-four finish in 2005/06!
  • A win last time out away to Mallorca extended Osasuna’s streak of alternating between wins and losses to five. That result also meant they completed the previous round as the only club in LL to have not seen the home side on the day win a single match (D2, L5)! If the omens weren’t bad enough here, the pre-match favourite has a fairly abysmal W2, D2, L3 record from their seven LL outings.
  • An away victory at Athletic Bilbao two rounds ago forms part of some excellent form that could see Rayo Vallecano win four consecutive LL matches for the first time since 2012/13. They too are enjoying heights not seen in this division for decades – it’s their best start to a LL season since a W5, D1, L1 start under the legendary Juande Ramos in 1999/2000.
  • Seven of the last ten LL matches involving either club have seen both teams score, and with Vallecano yet to keep a clean sheet away from home this LL season, that trend looks set to continue if their attacking unit continues to fire.
  • Players to watch: Cote, who opened the scoring for Osasuna last week, created a match winning assist in his last appearance against Vallecano (for Eibar). Meanwhile, Radamel Falcao has been more than worth the wait for Vallecano, becoming the first player since Diego Costa in February 2012 to score in his first three LL matches for the club.
  • Hot stat: The team to score first has won the last six LL matches involving either club.
