Rayo Vallecano vs Real Madrid Match Preview
Zinedine Zidane revealed Real Madrid were “a bit angry” after failing to win at Getafe on Thursday – but they will surely be absolutely livid if they cannot beat Rayo Vallecano.
Although they had more of the midweek game, which ended 0-0, Real did not work the Getafe goalkeeper as much as this season’s La Liga surprise packages tested Keylor Navas, who has deposed Thibaut Courtois from the starting XI.
That made it three out of three away games in which Real have not triumphed since Zidane returned as manager last month and it looks increasingly as though they are booked for third position in the table at the end of a trophyless campaign.
But they ought to be confident of returning to winning ways on another short journey to the outskirts of Madrid because Rayo Vallecano are bottom of the table and almost certainly destined for an immediate return to the Segunda Division.
Apart from an excellent spell either side of Christmas when they collected 13 points from a possible 15, Rayo have struggled badly this term and lost 10 of their last 13 games.
Historically there have been plenty of goals when these clubs meet and so we will back Rayo Vallecano to find the net even though another defeat for them looks highly likely.
