A huge game for Granada as they bid to boost their survival hopes.

El Graná faced a classic relegation six-pointer in their last game a fortnight ago, in which they were 2-1 down to Alavés at Mendizorrotza.

Nevertheless, Antonio Puertas equalised before Luis Suárez struck just three minutes from time, thereby snatching a priceless winner.

That was a crucial victory for Granada because, beforehand, they were winless in 11, losing seven of their previous eight.

This form cost Robert Moreno his job with successor Rubén Torrecilla claiming three points at just the second attempt.

So, at the start of the weekend, Granada sit 16th, just two points clear of danger.

Rayo Vallecano themselves aren’t defiantly safe, despite the fact they were actually fourth on Christmas Day.

In 2022, los Franjirrojos are still winless with their 1-0 defeat to Atlético Madrid last time out meaning it’s just two points from ten outings.

This, obviously, has seen Andoni Iraola’s side slide down the table, so much so that they’re only four points above their hosts.

Just one more win would, surely, ensure los Vallecanos survive but, having not won for 106 days, confidence can’t be particularly high.

Will Granada claim their first victory at Nuevo Estadio de Los Cármenes of 2022, against a side who have won away just once all season?

Defenders Carlos Vena, Santiago Arias and Neyder Lozano are all injured.

Despite this, Rubén Torrecilla could continue to deploy a back five, featuring Germán Sánchez and captain Víctor Díaz.

Unused substitute Aarón Escandell was sent off against Alavés but this’ll make little difference as Luís Maximiano is the first-choice goalkeeper anyway.

Njegoš Petrović, who arrived from Crvena zvezda in January, could continue to anchor midfield with Luis Milla as his partner.

Luis Suárez’s winner 14 days ago could see him return to the XI, alongside Jorge Molina up front, with Myrto Uzuni joing Carlos Bacca on the bench.

Rayo are still hoping that Radamel Falcao will be fit having missed the last three matches injured.

In his absence, Sergi Guardiola leads the line with Bebé the most threatening of the supporting cast.

Luca Zidane had started some games in goal recently but Stole Dimitrievski appears to have wrestled the gloves back.
