Alaves vs Rayo Vallecano – Team news, lineups, and more

With both teams struggling to get any points lately, we expect this to be a very close game. So, let's take a closer look at them now:


With four losses in the last four La Liga matches, it seems that Alaves have sealed their faith and that we won't be seeing them in La Liga next season. The team is currently last in the standings and they are seven points behind Mallorca the first team outside of the relegation zone at the moment. So, with seven rounds remaining, Alaves still has some chance to survive, but those are very slim right now.

Meanwhile, Alaves is missing Pere Pons and Javi Lopez through injuries, but the rest of the team is healthy and ready to try and salvage the season.

Alaves predicted lineup:

Pacheco – Tenaglia, Laguardia, Lejeune, Navarro; Escalante, Loum – E. Mendez, Pellistri, Rioja – Joselu

Rayo Vallecano

A lot of time has passed since Rayo Vallecano managed to beat someone in La Liga since their last win was twelve rounds ago. However, the team had a fantastic first half of the season where they were among the top teams at one point, which seems to be enough to keep them out of trouble, for now, since they are six points ahead of Cadiz, the first team in the relegation zone.

When in comes to team news, Martin Merquelanz, Esteban Saveljich, and Radamel Falcao are on the sidelines once again with injuries.

Rayo Vallecano predicted lineup:

Dimitrievski – Balliu, Maras, Catena, Rodrigues – Valentin, Comesana – Palazon, Trejo, A. Garcia – Guardiola
