Rayo Vallecano vs Celta Vigo
Spain La Liga
Rayo Vallecano go into the match off the back of a couple of impressive victories in La Liga, beating Real Valladolid 1-0 away from home and enjoying a 2-1 success over Levante. Additionally, they benefit from having a squad in good condition. Gorka Elustondo (mid, 5/0) is the only player who will definitely miss out. A tactical switch to playing five at the back appears to be paying dividends.
Celta Vigo have struggled under new coach Miguel Cardoso (W2 D1 L4), while they are forced into a quick turnaround between fixtures, having played against Athletic Bilbao on Monday where they suffered a 2-1 defeat. Moreover, they have lost key attacker Iago Aspas (att, 17/10), by some distance their best player, and are also without David Costas (def, 6/0).
