Valencia v Rayo Vallecano
Marcelino will be hoping that Valencia’s 1-0 victory at Getafe will kick-start their season having drawn eight of their previous 11 matches. That includes five of six at home, though they have held the likes of Barcelona and Atletico and only one team to visit is currently in the bottom six. Hosting such sides last term, they won six out of six and going back to 2016/17, they’ve won five of six at the Mestalla against promoted outfits.
Vallecano are struggling on their return to the top flight with their sole success against the only side below them in the table, Huesca. They’ve lost seven of their remaining 11 games with defence the main issue as they’ve conceded at least twice in eight of these. Indeed, the 25 goals they’ve shipped is the joint-worst in the division and so although Los Che haven’t been the most prolific going forward this term, they can be confident with the additional boost of Goncalo Guedes returning to the side in the last couple of outings. He’s only started four times this season, with one of those against Barcelona as they led before he came off with an injury, while since the start of last term their win ratio increases from just 17% without him to 67% when he starts.
Huesca v Levante
Huesca are winless since defeating Eibar on the opening day of the season, but the fixture list has not been kind with five of their eight defeats coming against top-six sides. At home they’ve drawn two and lost three, but they’ve been competitive, conceding just six times across these as none have featured more than two strikes. In fact, on expected points Huesca would have doubled their current total and they have a chance to take advantage of an understrength Levante side.
Indeed, Paco Lopez’s men endured a bit of a nightmare hosting Real Sociedad before the international break. They conceded three goals in the final 20 minutes to lose 3-1 and key players Jose Luis Morales and Jose Campana picked up yellow card suspensions. The former is crucial playing form the left wing and was Levante’s top scorer and assister last term and is the second-top scorer this campaign. He’s missed just three matches since the start of last season and they’re all winless, while over the same period they’ve lost three of five winless games without Campana. The midfielder makes them tick and has completed more than 200 passes more than any other player in the squad this term, and so we wouldn’t be surprised to see Levante lose for the second time this season at promoted side having gone down to Valladolid already.
Atletico Madrid v Barcelona
This is a massive game at the top of the table as Barcelona’s extraordinary 3-4 defeat at home to Real Betis has opened up the title race. However, they’ve shown already this season that they’re able to step it up when the chips are down, beating Sevilla (who were above them in 2nd at the time) and Real Madrid by an aggregate scoreline of 9-3 following a four-match winless streak. Ernesto Valverde’s men went unbeaten against top-six finishers last term and including current top-six sides, they have won 10 of 13 unbeaten matches against such opponents since the start of last season.
Although Atletico are an impressive W17-D7-L1 at the Wanda Metropolitano in the league, they’re yet to face a side higher than 10th this term and they drew four of five against the top six last season. In fact, their last home success against one of the Big Two in La Liga was in the Madrid Derby in 2014/15, while under Diego Simeone, they’ve lost nine of 13 winless matches against Barcelona both home and away. Moreover, there is an injury crisis in the Atletico defence with Diego Godin, Jose Gimenez and Stefan Savic all sidelined, as well as left-back Lucas Hernandez (who has been used as make-shift centre-half in five of his seven appearances this term). Apart from Godin they all missed the victory over Athletic Bilbao prior to the international break, but they still conceded twice and now without their captain they could be exposed against the excellence of Messi and co.
