Rayo Vallecano is hosting Real Sociedad at Estadio de Vallecas stadium in Madrid on May 1st. Rayo Vallecano is sitting at 11th place and will be looking to take down La Liga’s 6th place in an upset as they are just a couple of points away from entering the top 10. Real Sociedad comes into this match after dropping a very important victory versus Barcelona. Imanol Alguacil can’t waste any more opportunities as the end of the season gets closer and they are still a few wins away from reaching a top 5 spot.
Andoni Iraola’s men secured a crucial win against Barcelona last week after French striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored a goal in the first half of the match. Even if Rayo had a 44% possession, it was more than enough for them to take the victory home with a 1-0 score. Rayo still has to face quite a few teams from the bottom half of the standings which means that they can secure a top 10 finish if everything goes well for them in the coming weeks.
On the flip side, La Real was put in a tough position as they couldn’t secure a win against Barcelona as Rayo Vallecano did. Real Sociedad has almost secured a spot in Europa League but they are still missing a couple of points for this to happen. They still have a couple of important matches coming into the following weeks. The biggest ones are against Villareal and Atletico Madrid, both challenging opponents that are currently sitting in the top 7 of La Liga.
The last time these two teams met was in August 2021 and Real Sociedad didn’t have much trouble after they played a controlled game and Mikel Oyarzabal scored the only goal of the match around the 68-minute mark. The stakes are higher for La Real in this match and it’s safe to say that if they play to their fullest potential, they will be able to come out on top against Rayo.
