Real Madrid will receive the surprise package for La Liga season Rayo Vallecano in the Spanish top class on Saturday night.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side predictably occupies the high parts of the table, and is one point behind the leader Real Sociedad with a match in hand. Newcomer Rayo, on the other hand, lags behind his brilliant hosts by just four points and lives in the dizzying worlds in sixth place with almost a third of the campaign played.

Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming clash.

Despite a rare start against Elche last weekend – which he marked with an assist – Mariano Diaz has been ruled out until the other side of the November international break after breaking his nose. Casemiro was also at the end of a blow to the face but avoided all broken legs, even though Madrid’s Brazilian winger Rodrygo was forced off in the same match with a hamstring injury after just 18 minutes.

Gareth Bale has yet to return to training with his club, but has done nothing to change any of his commitment hierarchy issues by making himself available for international selection, and is part of Robert Page’s upcoming Wales squad.

Fede Valverde is also unlikely to play when he recovers from a sprained knee in El Clasico.

Rayo are set to take the 30-minute drive through the Spanish capital with a largely impeccable squad. Manager Andoni Iraola will probably not be able to hire winger Martin Merquelanz, who has been out with a sprained knee since September, but – crucially – should be able to choose his common top scorers this season; Alvaro Garcia, and a familiar enemy to them at Real’s half of Madrid, Radamel Falcao.

Real Madrid: Courtois; Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Mendy; Modric, Casemiro, Kroos; Vazquez, Benzema, Vinicius

Rayo Vallecano: Dimitrievski; Balliu, Maras, Catena, Francisco Garcia; Comesana, Valentin; Camacho, Lopez, Alvaro Garcia; Falcao

While Rayo has bounced between Spain’s top three levels for much of his history, encounters with one of the three clubs that will never be relegated from La Liga have been relatively few.

In total, the two capital sides have dropped it 36 ​​times in the top league, where Madrid have claimed an overwhelming figure of 28 wins to Rayo’s meager five. Although it was Los Franjirrojos (The Red Sashes) who took the victory in their last meeting; a shocking and well-deserved 1-0 victory at home against their city rivals in 2019.

However, Rayo has only won once away against Real in 18 attempts, and lost on his last nine trips to the other side of the capital.

Real Madrid may have only lost one of their first 11 league games under Ancelotti’s leadership, but Los Merengues have been far from flawless this term. Madrid’s mediocre figure of 12 goals conceded is made all the more worrying given that they are at a depth of 15 for expected goals without penalties (xG) conceded (per FBref).

Ancelotti’s team has so far compensated a leaky back guard with a windy attack that significantly exceeds their xG numbers in the future – overloaded by the red-hot form of Karim Benzema and Vinicius Junior who have 16 league goals between them (Rayo has only 18 together).

The capital’s relative fishermen may also be a little lucky to be as high as the European places, but they will need more than a bit of luck to beat their fallible, but rightly feared opponents.

Prediction: Real Madrid 3-1 Rayo Vallecano
