Update: After the floodlight failure on Sunday night, Rayo Vallecano v Real Madrid will now be played on Monday, September 24 at 18.45 UK time.
It may be early in the season but Rayo Vallecano lead Real Madrid by three points after four La Liga games, meaning this match is an absolute must win for Jose Mourinho’s side.

After Barcelona’s late 2-0 win over Granada on Saturday night, Real Madrid can no longer afford any slip ups at their local rivals even at this early stage of the season. Los Blancos currently trail the Catalans by 11 points, albeit with this game in hand.
The dramatic Champions League victory over Manchester City should ensure Madrid are at it from the off and all eyes will be on Jose Mourinho’s selection.
Will Sergio Ramos come back into the line up? Did Karim Benzema’s goal in midweek mean the Frenchman will start and has Luka Modric done enough to make the starting XI since his move from Spurs??
Rayo Vallecano are unlikely to roll over though. Paco Jemez’s side produced a late, ultimately fruitless, fight back to lose 4-3 at Atletico Madrid last week and held Sevilla to a 0-0 draw in their previous game.
Last season this fixture featured one of the goals of the season – a Cristiano Ronaldo back heel (picture above, video below). Will we see another golazo in Rayo Vallecano v Real Madrid?
