Match preview

Sound the klaxon: Rayo Vallecano have won a La Liga home game!

Last Saturday, Isi Palazón’s opener followed by an own goal saw los Franjirrojos beat Valencia 2-1 at Campo de Fútbol de Vallecas.

This is Rayo’s first home league victory since 18 December, with all three of their La Liga victories in 2022 beforehand coming in Catalonia.

Those three points move Andoni Iraola’s side up to ninth, looking to build on that here.

Athletic Club meanwhile are free-scoring on the road, but at home... not so much.

Last Sunday, the Lions were 4-0 up by half time against Elche, essentially declaring at the break and winning 4-1.

Nico Williams scoring his first La Liga goal, while Oihan Sancet from the penalty spot and Álex Berenguer were also on target at Estadio Manuel Martínez Valero.

Ernesto Valverde’s team have now scored four in back-to-back away games, also hammering Cádiz 13 days earlier.

But, at San Mamés this season, they’ve scored just once in three games, drawing with Mallorca, losing to Espanyol and narrowly beating Valencia.

Can Athletic address that by winning this Saturday night clash in Bilbao?
