The Whites are looking for the win in Vallecas in their second game of the week (8:45pm CEST).Real Madrid visit Rayo Vallecano for match day 35 in LaLiga. There are just four games left in the competition, two at home and two away. The game in Vallecas will be the penultimate away game for Zidane’s side, and their second game of the week, after the Getafe game on Thursday.
“Rayo never give up and we need to play well for a result”, stated Zidane earlier on. He will have a full squad, except for Sergio Ramos, Odriozola and Benzema. There are 19 players travelling.
REAL MADRID HAVE 17 WINS IN A ROW AGAINST RAYO VALLECANO.
Rayo Vallecano need to win to avoid relegation. Paco Jémez’s side are in twentieth position, with 28 points, and have won just four at home, six draws and seven losses. Their last results in Vallecas were a win over Valencia and draws against Betis and Huesca.
This will be clash number 36 between the two in LaLiga. Until now Real Madrid have won 28 games, drawn three and lost four. You have to go back to 1999/00 to find the last time the Whites didn’t win. Since then, they have won 17 times. One of the key man in these games is Bale. Rayo have conceded the most goals from the Welsh star in the entire league (9).
