Getafe – Rayo Vallecano Match Preview

  • With just a five-point cushion keeping Getafe from the drop zone ahead of the round, by no means is Quique Sánchez Flores’ side safe just yet. However solid home form has been the bedrock of Getafe’s revival following some early season jitters, with just one defeat in their last 12 home league games (W7, D4) helping the ‘Azulones’ to a position of relative safety.
  • Another victory here would go some way to wrapping up Getafe’s survival, but despite that solid home league form, they have a habit of coming unstuck against Rayo Vallecano. Four defeats in the last six home La Liga (LL) H2Hs (W1, D1) threatens to not only tarnish that impressive current run of results at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez, but also Sánchez Flores’ maiden managerial match-up against Vallecano.
  • A three-match unbeaten run (W2, D1), including a shock 1-0 win against Barcelona at the Camp Nou, arrested a 13-match winless run for Vallecano and halted their alarming slide down the table. There’s no guarantee the mid-table side will stretch that unbeaten run here though as Vallecano have lost their last four LL games against fellow teams from Comunidad de Madrid, whilst only two sides have lost more LL away games than Vallecano’s 11 this season.
  • While defensive solidity has underpinned Vallecano’s current three-game unbeaten run – with just one goal conceded across those games – that record is under serious threat at Getafe. The visitors have kept just one clean sheet in their last seven visits to their near neighbours (W3, D1, L3) which could potentially scupper Vallecano’s chances of securing a third straight LL away win for the first time since 2012!
  • Players to watchBorja Mayoral has scored three of Getafe’s last four goals in LL, and both his home goals this season have arrived after the 80th minute. Meanwhile, Vallecano’s Óscar Trejo has scored in three of his six LL appearances against Getafe.
  • Hot stat: Getafe have failed to score in eight of their last 11 LL games against Comunidad de Madrid sides (W1, D2, L8).
