• Rayo Vallecano have won four of their last six home league meetings with Sevilla, drawing one and losing one.
  • Sevilla have only won two of their 13 top-flight trips to Vallecas overall (D3 L8), with both wins ending 1-0.
  • Sevilla, who have missed a joint-high three penalties this season, were awarded two spot-kicks in this fixture last season but failed to score with both.
  • Los Franjirrojos have won just three home games this term; the same number of games that Sevilla have won on the road.
  • Sevilla are currently enduring their longest run of league games without a victory under Unai Emery (six); the last manager to lose seven in a row for the Andalusian side was dismissed straight away (Marcelino in 2012).
  • Paco Jemez's side have scored 20% of their goals this term from the penalty spot; a league-high proportion.
  • Unai Emery's side have lost a league-high 15 points from winning positions this season.
  • Only Real Madrid (14) and Barcelona (12) have scored more goals from outside the area than Sevilla (seven) this season, while Rayo have conceded the most from distance (eight).
  • Rayo are one of only three sides (with Athletic and Granada) yet to lose a single point having scored the first goal of the game this campaign.
