It’s the second meeting of these two sides this Season and this time the venue is Estadio de Vallecas. The Frogs will be keen to take points back home with them.

This clash sees nineteenth play twelfth, as struggling Levante visit Estadio de Vallecas to face Rayo.

With the LaLiga season well into its stride, Rayo Vallecano have managed to gain 42 points

It was three points secured for Rayo in their last fixture, beating Mallorca 2-1 at Estadi de Son Moix.

Also, league success is all about winning football matches, any way you can, so 11 losses in 19 meetings would not make this a successful season for Rayo. They currently stand twelfth in the League, with 42 points for a total of 11 wins, 17 losses and 9 draws having won 11 games, drawn nine fixtures, and lost 17 games.

Playing at home, Rayo have won eight meetings, drawn five matches, and lost five games.

Rayo Vallecano will see 45 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

Rayo are no strangers this season to illness and injury and Andoni Iraola is concerned that Friday’s fixture could see him without four of his key players.

Can Levante make it three out of three, having turned over Alaves 3-1 and R Madrid 6-0 in their last two games?

Also, getting out of a relegation battle requires a string of positive results, but Alessio Lisci’s men know that 10 losses in 20 matches is a run of form that will be hard to turn around. With 32 points, they currently sit nineteenth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 7 wins, 19 losses and 11 draws having won seven games, drawn 11 meetings, and lost 19 matches.

Levante’s away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to Rayo. In the 18 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won two matches, drawn four fixtures, and lost 12 games.

Victory for Levante would take their points tally to 35 so far this season.

Injury and illness have depleted Alessio Lisci’s Levante and they will likely be missing four key personnel for Friday’s match.
