On Saturday afternoon, Athletic Club hosts Rayo Vallecano at San Mames as the home team looks to continue their recent unbeaten run in La Liga.

Athletic Club

The boys from Bilbao go into this encounter on the back of a highly respectable 1-1 draw at La Liga leaders Girona.

The result means that Athletic are now unbeaten in their last five games in all competitions, including their last four matches in the Spanish top-flight.

Athletic dropped down to sixth place in the table over the weekend, with Basque rivals Real Sociedad leapfrogging them into fifth place.

However, Ernesto Valverde’s team is still only six points adrift of the Champions League spots.

Los Leones have been formidable at San Mames of late in La Liga, as they are unbeaten in their previous six home games in the Spanish top-flight, having also scored at least two goals in all six outings.

Rayo Vallecano

Like their opponents, Rayo picked up a respectable result last time out, as the visitors drew 1-1 on home soil with Barcelona.

However, the result means that Francisco’s team has won just once in their previous five games. On the flip side, they have also lost just once in their last ten matches in the Spanish top-flight.

The lack of recent wins has somewhat hampered Rayo’s chances of breaking into the league’s top six, although they are only six points behind their opponents in the table.

The visitors have a mixed recent away record in La Liga, as they have lost just one of their previous seven games in the Spanish top flight while also being unbeaten in the last four away games.

However, they have also won just once in their previous five away matches in La Liga.
