Real Madrid vs Rayo Vallecano: Predicted line-ups, kick-off time, how and where to watch on TV and online


After struggling their way to victory against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League, Real Madrid will be hoping for a more convincing performance when they welcome Rayo Vallecano on Saturday night.

Fede Valverde‘s absence was keenly felt on Wednesday night but as he remains unavailable, Carlo Ancelotti may be tempted to name the same side. Even when the team is not firing on all cylinders, Karim Benzema and Vinicius Junior give Madrid plenty of firepower and chances to create and score.

Andoni Iraola’s Rayo side have drawn plenty of plaudits this campaign and will make the short trip across Madrid to the Bernabeu just over a week after beating Barcelona.

The former Athletic Club full back may be tempted to tweak things after the draw with Celta on Monday with Oscar Trejo returning to the no.10 spot ahead of Unai Lopez.
