Girona vs Rayo Vallecano: Preview

Girona form analysis

Blanquivermells has shown flashes of impressive offense but a porous defense continues letting them down in recent matches. On February 20th, Girona battled back twice before falling 3-2 away to Athletic Bilbao. Earlier on February 10th though, Girona was thoroughly outclassed in a 4-0 thrashing away to mighty Real Madrid. Prior to that on February 4th, Girona played to a lackluster 0-0 home draw with Real Sociedad, failing to translate their dangerous attacks into goals.

On January 28th, Girona managed to grind out a 1-0 home victory over Celta Vigo thanks to a 20th minute Portu strike. Girona’s best recent performance came in a shocking 5-1 demolition of struggling Sevilla on January 22nd, powered by a Dovbyk hat trick and goals from Tsyhankov and Stuani. So Girona has shown the ability to pile up goals against lesser sides but struggles mightily containing offenses with more quality. Tighter organization defensively could help transform those lopsided losses against top attacks into more positive results.

Rayo Vallecano form analysis

Rayo Vallecano has been solid though not spectacular recently, mixing some impressive results with narrow defeats. On February 18th, Rayo battled back to draw mighty Real Madrid 1-1 at home after conceding early to Joselu. Earlier on February 11th though, Rayo fell 2-1 away to Mallorca after Álvaro García equalized but they conceded late. Prior to that on February 6th, Rayo took an early lead on Sevilla through Palazón but ultimately fell 2-1 from a second half En-Nesyri brace.

On February 1st, Rayo suffered a narrow 2-1 home loss to Atletico Madrid after García again got them level but Depay won it late. Rayo’s best recent result came in a 0-0 away draw at sixth-place Real Sociedad on January 27th. So while Rayo lacks the talent to dominate matches, their organization and fight has helped them compete well with talented opposition. Maintaining intensity and composure for 90 minutes could help them close out more draws into valuable wins.
