Rayo Vallecano has gathered four points from their previous two games with a lot of hard work. The result has culminated into a currently 12th place with 37 points, which is five points above the relegation zone. They have been very good at home of late with four straight wins. The three latest home wins have all been coming against vital teams that also fights for survival; 19th placed Almeria (3-1), 15th placed Osasuna (1-0) and 14th placed Celta Vigo (3-0). Overall they have done quite good lately with 2-2-1 from the latest five games. They are not secured to play in La Liga next season yet, but with a win against Betis today could take them a long step in the right direction. In terms of injuries, defender Razvan Rat (8/1) and striker Jonathan (27/5) are both missing this match. However, their defender Alejandro Galvez (22/2) is returning from his suspension.
Real Betis did not stand any chance in the derby against Sevilla (0-2) last weekend as they already got Juan Carlos (17/0) sent off in the 30th minute. He did also make a penalty which Kevin Gameiro sent into the back of the net, and the road towards getting anything out of the game was never possible for Betis. Instead Kevin Gameiro doubled the score after 83 minutes and definitely won the game for Sevilla. However, Betis has had a terrible season so far and they are rock bottom with only 22 points after 33 games played. The form has been 1-0-4 from the latest five games, and with three straight losses, the Segunda Division is closing in on the team in green and white. A huge reason to their bad results is the injury-list and it is only growing toward this match. The defensive duo Didac Villa (12/0) and Juan Carlos (17/0) are both missing, joined by the three midfielders Xavi Torres (10/0), Matilla (20/0) and Salva Sevilla (17/3). Another midfilder Lorenzo Reyes (21/1) is suspended today, while midfielder Nosa (11/1), defender Damien Perquis (8/0) and midifielder Nono (21/0) are a bit doubtful after some minor injury problems this week. However, they are expected to be available for the team this match.
The indication of both form and attitude towards this game should be in Rayo Vallecano’s favor. With another loose for Betis, it will give them a 10 point-gap up to the safe-spot with only four games left of the season, which does not seem possible for them at all. Rayo Vallecano are building their way into La Liga next season piece by piece, and could almost secure their place with three points here. The momentum is within the home squad, and given everything that is wrong in Betis these days; from injuries, bad form and a mentally impossible task ahead of them in order to keep thinking positive, I think that Rayo will grab another win and probably be waving Betis goodbye into the Segunda Division next season.
