After a turbulent summer in which Rayo Vallecano lost some key players, as well as their manager Andoni Iraola to AFC Bournemouth, the home team did manage to start the season well and ease any concerns that it would be an entirely long and miserable campaign but things have declined a fair but under Francisco and they are at risk of being dragged down to the bottom three.

However, just when it appears that Rayo will surely be coming towards being on the wrong side of an absolute hammering. Rayo Vallecano end up putting in some creditable performances. They shared a goalless draw with Real Sociedad in the Basque Country last weekend before only just being edged out by two goals to one by Atletico Madrid in midweek.


Onto their third permanent manager of the campaign in former Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores, Sevilla are very much involved in yet another relegation battle after a fairly miserable couple of years in the transfer market have finally started to catch up with the on-pitch performances and results of the Andalusians.

The visitors come into this one on the back of a being held to a 1-1 draw with mid-table Osasuna at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan last weekend, in their most recent outing. That means Sevilla are now winless in their last five La Liga matches with just three victories in 22 games all season as they hover just a point outside of the bottom three and the relegation places.



Former Manchester United forward Bebe is away on international duty with Cabo Verde at the Africa Cup of Nations, whilst Diego Mendez is out injured, too.

PREDICTED XI (3-4-2-1): Dimitrievski; Aridane, Lejeune, Espino; Ratiu, Perez, Valentin, Chavarria; Palazon, Garcia; Camello

UNAVAILABLE: Bebe (International duty)

QUESTIONABLE: Mendez (Injured)


Both Suso and Sergio Ramos are missing due to suspension, whilst the likes of Kike Salas, Nemanja Gudelj and Dodi Lukebakio are out injured at the moment.

PREDICTED XI (3-5-2): Nyland; Bade, Gattoni, Marcao; Navas, Joan Jordan, Agoume, Soumare, Acuna; Romero, Ocampos

UNAVAILABLE: Suso (Suspended), Ramos (Suspended), Salas (Injured), Gudelj (Injured), Lukebakio (Injured)

QUESTIONABLE: Nianzou (Injured), Lamela (Injured), Diaz (Injured)


As mentioned, Rayo Vallecano have been able to raise their performance level against some of the big boys this season and, at least in name, Sevilla do fall into that category. We are getting towards must win territory for Sevilla as games against weaker and out of form sides are beginning to run out and there is a genuine possibility they slip into the second-tier. This is expected to be a nervy affair even if Sevilla have a good chance of nicking the three points.
