The high-flying Girona team led by ex Rayo Vallecano footballer and coach Michel will travel to Vallecas on Saturday to tackle Francisco’s troops.
Girona, who are leading La Liga right now, have performed much above what is expected this year thus far. The Catalan team will be optimistic going into this match after easily defeating Osasuna 4-2 last week.
Girona leads Real Madrid by a pair of points and the defending champions Barcelona by 4 points as they look down on the remainder of La Liga after winning ten, drawing one, and losing one of their twelve league games. As Michel comes back to a team where he played for more than 300 games and managed for two years, the league’s top scorers are among just two clubs that have not lost a road league encounter this season. They will be motivated to keep that record this coming weekend. Girona’s long list of injured players includes Ricard Artero, Joel Roca, Toni Villa, David Lopez, and Borja Garcia.
Conversely, Rayo Vallecano, who now sit in 9th position in the league rankings, have had a somewhat patchy campaign. In their previous match, the hosts admirably stopped Real Madrid to a scoreless draw, and they’ll want to step it up this weekend.
Los Franjirrojos have maintained 6 clean sheets throughout their 12 La Liga matches; only Carlo Ancelotti’s club and Barcelona have amassed the same number of clean sheets. This comes after Los Franjirrojos became just the second club to prevent Real Madrid without scoring during a home league match in 2023. Now that Girona is scheduled to visit Vallecas on Saturday, Rayo will focus on another challenging match, but the home team won’t be intimidated because they have not lost the previous four encounters with each other. Although Rayo don’t have any new injury concerns before the weekend, Ivan Balliu’s availability is questionable because he was injured, missing the 0-0 draw with Real Madrid.
