Barcelona will want to continue from where they left off last time out with a 0-2 La Liga victory over UD Almería.

In that game, Barcelona managed 65% possession and 16 attempts on goal with 7 on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Barcelona was Fermín (14', 67'). Almeria got 12 shots at goal with 3 of them on target.

Barcelona have been on a persistent run of goalscoring form, finding the back of the net in one hundred percent of their last 6 games.

They’ve managed to rack up 12 during that period while also conceding a total of 13. However, we must now wait to see if such a trend shall continue on in this game or not.

Looking at the pre-match facts, Barcelona:

  • have not beaten Rayo Vallecano in their previous 5 league matches.
  • are unbeaten in their previous 7 league matches at home.

Rayo Vallecano head into the encounter following a 2-1 La Liga win to beat Granada in their most recent fixture.

In that game, Rayo Vallecano managed 31% possession and 18 shots at goal with 9 on target. For Rayo Vallecano, the goals were scored by Florian Lejeune (23') and Jorge de Frutos (80'). Granada had 10 attempts at goal with 1 of them on target. Lucas Boyé (89') was the scorer for Granada.

It has become apparent that Rayo Vallecano have had real problems scoring goals over their previous 6 games, recording the poor return of just 4. In those matches, Franjirrojos have also seen the collective goal aggregate of opposing teams equal 6.

Taking a look at their past results, Rayo Vallecano:

  • have not been beaten by Barcelona in games played away from home for the previous 2 league games.
  • have not won away from home in their last 8 league games. A poor run.

🤜🤛 Head to head

A glance at their prior head to head meetings going back to 27/01/2021 shows us that Barcelona have won 1 of them and Rayo Vallecano 3, with the number of drawn results being 2.

An aggregate of 10 goals were shared by the two clubs in these games, with 4 for Barça and 6 created by Franjirrojos. The average number of goals per game works out to 1.67.

📰 Team News: Barcelona

Frenkie de Jong (Ankle injury), Alejandro Balde (Tendon rupture) and Gavi (Cruciate ligament tear) won’t be able to feature for Barcelona manager Xavi Hernández.

In all likelihood, Barça should kick off with a 4-3-3 formation for the game featuring M. ter Stegen, Jules Kounde, Pau Cubarsi, Inigo Martinez, Joao Cancelo, Fermin Lopez, Andreas Christensen, Ilkay Gundogan, Lamine Yamal, Robert Lewandowski and Raphinha.

🗞️ Team News: Rayo Vallecano

Thanks to a completely injury-free squad to pick from, the Rayo Vallecano manager Iñigo Pérez doesn’t have any fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this clash.

We believe Franjirrojos seem most likely to play in a 4-2-3-1 formation using Stole Dimitrievski, Ivan Balliu, Abdul Mumin, Florian Lejeune, Alfonso Espino, Oscar Valentin, Miguel Crespo, Isi Palazon, Unai Lopez, Alvaro Garcia and Sergio Camello.

💡 Prediction

In our view, Rayo Vallecano will likely create enough chances to find the net against this Barcelona team, however it realistically won’t be enough to prevent defeat.

Our selection here is for a narrow 2-1 victory for Barcelona by the conclusion of the game. Let’s see what eventuates.
