It has been seldom in recent games where Levante have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. In fact, Levante have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 6 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 12 goals during that time. That aside, it remains to be seen whether that pattern might continue on in this upcoming match.

- have not won at home in their last 6 league games. Their supporters are understandably frustrated.

Looking at the pre-match facts, Rayo Vallecano:

Team News: Rayo Vallecano
Due to a completely injury-free group to choose from, the Rayo Vallecano boss Andoni Iraola doesn’t have any fitness concerns at all coming into this clash.
In our opinion, Rayo Vallecano might need a bit of good fortune to see themselves scoring against this Levante lineup who we reckon should end up scoring and possibly keep a clean sheet as well.
We’ve gone for a good battle with a 1-0 win for Levante at the conclusion of the game.
