Rayo Vallecano vs Valencia – La Liga – Preview

Posted on by Sreya

The La Liga kicks off this weekend with Rayo Vallecano welcoming Valencia to Campo de Futbal de Vallecas. Rayo Vallecano finished at 11th position with 49 points in the 2014/15 domestic campaign while Valencia finished at 4th, earning eligibility for the UEFA Champions League qualifiers.

Team News & Formation

Rayo Vallecano will be without the services of injured Luis Farina (hip), Christian Alvarez (muscle), Tito (thigh) and Adrian Embarba (foot). Valencia have a few injury concerns of their own with Diego Alves and Andre Gomes ruled out of the fixture. In addition, Jose Gaya, Daniel Parejo and Sofiane Feghouli are suspended.

Rayo Vallecano is expected to lineup in a 4-2-3-1, while Valencia will play their manager Nuno’s preferred 4-3-3 formation.

Rayo Vallecano Possible Starting XI: Tono, Quino, Antonio Amaya, Ze Castro, Nacho, Roberto Trashoerras, Raul Baena, Patrick Ebert, Bebe, Lass, Manucho.

Valencia Possible Starting XI: Matt Ryan, Joao Cancelo, Ruben Vezo, Skhodran Mustafi, Lucas Orban, Enzo Perez, Javi Fuego, Rodrigo de Paul, Rodrigo, Paco Alcacer, Palco Piatti.

Contributor’s Pick

Rayo Vallecano have had a transfer window similar to previous years, with the club seeing a high turnover of players. Patrick Ebert (returning from loan) and Bebe (who is on loan) should feature heavily in the season opener. Manucho will also have a lot of responsibility to score goals, especially with Alberto Bueno’s departure this summer.

Valencia will miss Diego Alves through a long-term injury (ACL tear), which will see Matt Ryan making his La Liga debut. Nuno’s side will be without Nicolas Otamendi who signed for Manchester City earlier this week and Ruben Vezo must step up to fill the space left behind by the Argentine.

According to Head-2-Head statistics, Rayo Vallecano have won less than 21% of its matches against Valencia, conceding 54 goals in the process. Valencia are the likely winners in this encounter, with a 2-1 scoreline.
