Real Madrid will face Rayo Vallecano on the road this evening for the first time in nine years with a chance to emulate their best run of consecutive away victories in La Liga and to consolidate their 10-point lead over the runners-up.
The Whites have won their last 13 derbies against neighboring sides (seven against Getafe, five against Atletico, one over Rayo) and haven't lost in Vallecas since 19 January 1997. The Madridistas are also the least scored upon side on the road (0.55 per match)
