Team News

Rayo Vallecano
Real Betis
  • Pathe Ciss returned to the first team - and for the first time under Inigo Perez - and should keep his place there despite the 1-0 loss to Alaves.
  • Miguel Crespo, who was Rayo's February player of the month, could make his third start of the season against Osasuna as his manager continues to experiment with the starting XI.
  • Chimy Avila is suspended in this one after picking up his fourth ban of the season thanks to a double yellow against Villarreal.
  • German Pezella returns from his one-match ban and should replace Sokratis in defence, who scored an own goal last week.
  • Guido Rodriguez returned last week against Villarreal and could keep his place at the heart of midfield.

Prediction

  • Rayo Vallecano welcome Real Betis to the capital on Sunday evening to try and avoid having the double done on them by Manuel Pellegrini's men. Betis were the 1-0 victors last time out thanks to a sole Willian Jose strike. Rayo haven't won a La Liga match since the 2nd of January, while Betis have recorded four victories since that date.
  • The hosts could move seven points clear of the dropzone with an unlikely home victory, while a loss could drag them a within a point of the drop if results go against them this weekend. Betis could move into sixth with a victory, potentially leapfrogging Real Sociedad for the first time this season.
  • The form of Betis could decide the outcome of this one, but Rayo will be glad to be playing at home for this one.
