Almería vs Rayo Vallecano match preview

It’s the opening game of the new La Liga season, so will either side put three points on the board in Andalucía?

When last we saw Almería, they were avoiding relegation on the final day of the season, holding Espanyol to a 3-3 at RCDE Stadium.

This was enough to see Rubi’s team retain their Primera División status, ending up just one point and one place clear of Valladolid who went down instead.

Ten of los Unión’s 11 victories in La Liga last season did come in front of their own supporters, so home form will remain key.

As for Rayo Vallecano, this is the start of a new era, with beloved manager Andoni Iraola having departed for Bournemouth during the summer.

Francisco, who’s previously been in charge of Huesca, Girona and Elche, is the new man in the hot-seat, and he has big shoes to fill, given that los Franjirrojos have finished 12th and 11th since gaining promotion in 2021.
