Valencia form and stats

3 victories, 3 draws and 1 defeat. That’s what Valencia have to build on here at Estadio de Mestalla in the La Liga.

Valencia travelled for their previous game, a trip to Real Sociedad that ended 0-0. Carlos Soler (midfield was the top team player in that game with a rating of 7.34/10. Soler dribled past the opponent 1 of 2 times.

Preceding that game was the home draw versus Atletico Madrid that ended 3-3.

The hosts are modest favourites in this match, with the bookmakers estimating the chance of a home win at about 50% +- five percent. It's interesting to look at how Valencia have performed under similar circumstances, so here are some numbers: When modest favourites like this (we found twelve games) they have won seven times, drawn five and lost zero.

A decent goal production from Valencia in their home games so far, with 13 goals from 7 league matches. Valencia's goalkeeper has had to pick the ball out of their own net 8 times. For more goal stats, check the Statistics tab above.

Rayo Vallecano form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Rayo Vallecano so far with only 4 points returning home. The records show 1-1-5 (win-draw-lose). Three might be a magic number, but there's been little wizardry in Vallecano's last three away games as they have all been lost.

The supporters enjoyed Vallecano's previous game versus Mallorca (placed 13th), a La Liga 3-1 win played at home. Midfield player Óscar Trejo was the top player of the team with a match rating of 8.13/10. Trejo scored one goal, served one assist, hit six key passes, dribled past the opponent 2 of 3 times and had 25 successful passes (of 27 total).

It was a defeat before that one as the away game against Real Madrid wasn't a success with a 1-2 loss.

We have checked recent matches where Vallecano have had similar odds to win. Win-draw-lose statistics from those three games were two victories, one draw and zero defeats.

The visitors have scored 6 goals from 7 away games in the league, an average of less than one per game. Rayo Vallecano's defence is not exactly unbeatable as they have conceded 12 goals from these trips.

Head 2 Head

Head-2-head stats last ten meetings: four - four - two (Valencia wins - draws - Rayo Vallecano wins). As for goals, five matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), five had two or less.
