Team News

  • Rayo failed to recover from two early goals at the Bernabéu, despite playing with a player advantage for 70 minutes.
  • Alhassane Bangoura - known simply as Lass - picked up his 5th yellow card of the campaign, adding to long-term casualties Rodri and Mikel Labaka.
  • Andrija Delibasic is favourite to occupy the wide position vacated by Lass, though José Carlos may also be in contention.
  • Conceding three at home is never good, but even more so when one of the scorers was a former fan favourite in Diego Costa.
  • Henrique Sereno and Antonio Rukavina are back from their sanctions to sure up the defence, with Carlos Peña and Javier Baraja likely to make way.
  • Attacking midfielder and leading scorer Óscar Gonzalez is a doubt, and should he fail to recover Alberto Bueno is waiting in the wings.

Prediction

  • Having won their last three home matches, Paco Jémez' team are a whole different proposition at Vallecas.
  • Valladolid are without a goal in their last two matches, though they hit eight in four games prior to the mini dry spell.
  • A low scoring encounter with Rayo getting the better of a Valladolid team that haven't won in their last four is the likeliest outcome.
