At the Estadio de Vallecas on Saturday, Rayo Vallecano will face an impressive Real Sociedad team in the 2022-23 La Liga season’s second round of matches. Real Sociedad is currently in excellent form and is third in the La Liga standings.
In their previous match, La Real defeated Mallorca by a narrow margin of 1-0, and they will attempt to up their game this weekend. On the other hand, Real Vallecano is currently in ninth place in the league but has not performed at its best this season.
Last week, the visitors prevailed 1-0 over Real Valladolid, and they will need to do the same in this matchup.
Real Sociedad will be determined to keep their spot in the top four after exceeding expectations so far this season. Mikel Oyarzabal and Alexander Sorloth, who can be deadly on their day, will try to make an impact in this game.
On a good day, Rayo Vallecano can be powerful, but they haven’t been at their best in recent weeks. At the moment, Real Sociedad is the better team, and they should be able to win this game.
Prediction: Rayo Vallecano 1-2 Real Sociedad
Real Sociedad has won 11 of the last 30 games against Rayo Vallecano, compared to Rayo Vallecano’s 10 victories, giving them a slight advantage. Rayo Vallecano is winless in their last seven La Liga matches against La Real after winning three straight against Real Sociedad.
Real Sociedad has gained something from each of their last four visits to Rayo Vallecano, following a streak of eight defeats in ten away matches against the Vallecas. In their last seven La Liga away games against Madrid-based teams, Real Sociedad has failed to win, but they have scored in all of those games.
Rayo Vallecano’s total of 26 points from 17 points in La Liga is their highest total since the turn of the century at this point in the competition.
Due to a tendon injury, Ruben de Tomas is still out of action for Rayo, but the home team is in good shape going into Saturday’s match. Oscar Trejo and Radamel Falcao are both vying for a spot in the starting lineup for this game, so head coach Iraola has a lot to decide about the team.
Trejo could start in place of Unai Lopez, which would be the only change from the team that started against Real Valladolid last time out. It seems likely that Sergio Camello will lead the attack once more.
