Rayo Vallecano vs Villarreal preview: Probable lineups, news, and form

We've seen some interesting duels between these teams in the past, so we expect the same now. So, here's a closer look at both teams:

Rayo Vallecano

The season is nearly over and Rayo Vallecano fans can certainly be happy with their team and what they achieved this season. In addition to securing a spot in La Liga for next season way before this one is over, Rayo Vallecano also reached the semi-finals of Copa del Rey. Meanwhile, the team has two wins, three draws, and one loss in the last six games in the league.

Meanwhile, Martin Merquelanz and Isi Palazon are out for Rayo Vallecano with injuries, while Pathe Ciss is out through suspension.

Rayo Vallecano predicted lineup:

Dimitrievski – Balliu, M. Suarez, Catena, F. Garcia – Comesana, Valentin – Bebe, Trejo, A. Garcia  Guardiola


With two wins, two draws, and two losses in the last six games in La Liga, Villarreal is far from being in great form. However, they are still in the race for a spot in Europa League since they are currently just three points behind Real Sociedad, who is in the sixth place in the standings. So, Villarreal has every reason to fight hard in their next game against Rayo Vallecano.

The Yellow Submarine will be without injured Alberto Moreno and Gerard Moreno, while Yeremy Pino and Arnaut Danjuma are deemed questionable and if they do play they will likely get in from the bench.

Villarreal predicted lineup:

Rulli – Foyth, Albiol, P. Torres, Estupinan – Chukwueze, Capoue, Parejo, Coquelin – Lo Celso – Dia
