On Sunday evening at the Bernabeu, Real Madrid will host Rayo Vallecano in an attempt to increase their lead over their rivals in La Liga.
Jude Bellingham scored two goals in the second half to help the capital giants defeat Barcelona in the previous weekend’s El Clasico, which Carlo Ancelotti’s team came back from behind to win. With 28 points, Los Blancos presently sit atop the La Liga standings, one point above 3rd-place Atletico Madrid, who still have a match to play. They are tied in points with Girona who is in 2nd place. Los Blancos, who have dominated the Champions League and won their last three encounters in Europe, will also be itching for this opportunity to stamp their authority once more. Ancelotti’s team defeated Osasuna 4-0 in a routine match before the international break in October. They have also become well-known for their accomplishments at home. As a matter of reality, Real Madrid has won 11-2 overall in all of the initial 5 matches at the Bernabeu.
In La Liga, Rayo Vallecano is likewise somewhat unblemished as they have gone 7 matches without a loss. The Madrid team had a strong start to their campaign, winning their first two games 2-0, but a 7-0 setback against Atletico Madrid knocked them to their knees. Rayo Vallecano lost another game to Real Betis, although they had triumphed in 2 and drawn 5 of their previous 7 matches to move up to the 7th spot. Even if Los Franjirrojos have been scoring goals since the start of the new season, Vallecano will know that their trip to Madrid on Sunday evening will provide a formidable obstacle. Francisco’s team had lost all 12 of their previous visits to Los Blancos, dating back 23 years, including suffering a 2-1 defeat the last time they visited the Bernabeu in top-flight competition on May 24th.
