On Saturday afternoon, Rayo Vallecano will host Mallorca at Estadio de Vallecas, hoping to extend their current four-game winning streak in La Liga. Francisco’s squad comes into the game off a scoreless tie with Cadiz, while Mallorca‘s most recent match was a 2-2 draw with reigning champion Barcelona.
Rayo enters this match with a three-game La Liga unbeaten streak and five points to their name after a 2-0 win over Alaves during the international break and draws with Villarreal and Cadiz.
Francisco’s squad is off to a good start this season, sitting in sixth place in the league despite only winning three of their seven matches so far.
It is feasible that Rayo, who have finished 12th and 11th in their first two seasons back at this level of football, could challenge for a top-seven berth this season.
Only one of Rayo’s last five league games against Saturday’s opponents has ended in a victory for the home team. Saturday’s opponents proved their worth by earning a draw against defending champions Barcelona on Tuesday night.
Mallorca took the lead twice against Barcelona; Vedat Muriqi scored the game’s first goal in the eighth minute, then Raphinha tied the game late in the first half.
Then, with less than a minute remaining in the first half, Abdon Prats put Javier Aguirre’s team back in front. However, Fermin Lopez tied the game in the 75th minute.
Mallorca is currently in 15th place in the La Liga table after collecting six points from seven matches so far this season. Their lone La Liga victory in 2023-24 came on the road against Celta Vigo on September 16.
Since returning to the major leagues, the Pirates have finished 16th and ninth in the previous two campaigns, making it impossible to predict how they will fare this season.
