Second match of the week for the Vallecano Ray and the Real Madrid in The league. After the day's work, the Vallecas Stadium opens its doors for the match corresponding to day 35 of the domestic championship. While those of Paco Jémez come to be thrashed by 5-0 against the Seville at Sánchez Pizjuán, the whites tied to zero in the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez in front of Getafe.
While Real Madrid lives comfortably in the third place of the table, knowing that it will be in the Champions League the next season; the Rayo Vallecano began the day 35 from the last position of the league classification. With 28 points it is seven Valladolid, which occupies position 17, Rayo is the red lantern of First Division and has the obligation to win to continue aspiring not to descend at the end of the season.
For this, the franjirrojos will not be able to count on From Tomás. The striker, on loan from Real Madrid until the end of 2018/2019, will not play against those of Zinedine Zidane, despite pressures made publicly in recent days so that it could be in the Vallecas Stadium this Sunday, April 28, marked by the General elections in Spain.
Neither will the '9' of Real Madrid in the game. This Saturday the white club confirmed through an official statement that Karim Benzema had been injured and would be low in Vallecas. The French striker has scored the last eight goals of the merengue team in La Liga and now we will have to wait to know who takes his witness, not only in the scoring aspect, but also to pull the car.
The absence of the two referents of the attack marks a duel that has seen to become one of the most important in the casting of Zidane. Without Benzema, the French coach must decide who completes the attacking trident or go on to reinforce the midfield, forming with a 4-4-2 system. If you continue with your favorite 4-3-3, one of the options is to bet on Mariano or play with the figure of 'false nine'.
Courtois returns, Vinicius must wait
In the list of invited have entered some of the less common since Zidane returned to the Madrid bench. Marcos Llorente, Dani Ceballos or Mariano Díaz have been included in the call, but not a Vinicius Junior that he must wait to have minutes again. In French coach does not want to run with the young footballer of 18 years no risk so he has already assured that until the duel against the Villarreal the Brazilian will not return.
The one who is back is Thibaut Courtois. The former Chelsea points to the eleven holder, a gap that has been occupied since the dismissal of Solari by Keylor Navas, except in the match where he left the game Luca. The Belgian has remained immersed in the process of recovering from an injury during the last weeks and now he is ready to have his particular premiere under the orders of Zizou.
Leave the goal to zero and prove to the French coach that he should be the starter next season enters into the plans of Courtois, as well as get the victory against Rayo Vallecano, with which you can earn up to 20 euros per euro wagered. They also aim to return to the starting lineup other players as Vallejo or also Marcelo, Kroos Y Modric, who were substitutes against Getafe last Thursday.
Jémez against history against Madrid
The coach of the rayista team has always lost that he has faced Real Madrid, both as coach of the team of Vallecas -eight times- as during his stage in Las Palmas -Just a game. Since the year 2000, no victory for the Rayo against the whites. 18 consecutive games without scoring against the merengue team and of them, eight with Jémez at the controls.
Fight against the history, they do not win to the white set from the 19 of February of 1997, and also against the hell of the descent. The defeat against Sevilla has left touches to the franjirrojos, who do accounts to not end the day being a team of Second division for 2019/2020. If they fall to Madrid and there are a series of positive results from direct rivals for salvation, Rayo Vallecano could descend mathematically.
