Real Madrid vs Rayo Vallecano: times, TV and how to watch online
All the info you need on how and where to watch the LaLiga game between Real Madrid and Rayo Vallecano at the Santiago Bernabéu stadium on Saturday.
Real Madrid will be looking to grab another win in LaLiga and make it three straight victories in all competitions when they host neighbors Rayo Vallecano at the Bernabéu stadium on Saturday night.
Carlo Ancelotti’s men are currently sitting second in the standings with 24 points, one behind leaders Real Sociedad, while Rayo, one of the breakout teams this campaign, are in sixth, with 20 points from their opening 12 games.
Real Madrid solid in LaLiga
Although the hosts had some issues at the beginning of the season, they have managed to win seven matches, draw three and only lose one in the domestic competition.
Last weekend Los Blancos won at Elche, with in-form young star Vinicius Junior scoring twice in the absence of Karim Benzema. The French forward returned to the starting XI last Wednesday to score two goals in Real’s 2-1 win over Shakhtar Donetsk, which moved the Spanish powerhouses to the top of Champions League’s Group D.
Real Madrid lost 1-0 to Rayo in April 2019, but the reverse fixture at the Bernabéu that season ended in a 1-0 home win.
Rayo dream of an upset led by Falcao
The visitors, who finished eighth in the 2012-13 LaLiga campaign, have surprised many soccer fans with some impressive performances, sitting only four points behind Ancelotti’s squad.
Los Franjirrojos secured a return to Spain's top flight via the Segunda División playoffs last season and in contrast to predictions, they haven’t suffered from the step up from one division to the other.
Andoni Iraola's men have lost just one of their last four league games. Los Vallecanos, led by Radamel Falcao – who has four goals in seven league matches -, will be very motivated to upset the big favorites in their stadium, a team that thrashed them 10-2 in 2015 in the same scenario.
