After seeing their unbeaten streak come to an end last weekend, will Rayo Vallecano be able to bounce back?
On Sunday, los Franjirrojos were beaten 2-1 by Real Betis at Vallecas; Sergio Camello’s equaliser ultimately in vain.
Before this, Andoni Iraola’s team were unbeaten in seven league matches, dating all the way back to 8 October.
With four of these matches ending all square, los Vallecanos sit ninth, three points below the European spots.
So, will Rayo claim their first post-World Cup victory, as they make the 120 mile journey north to Castilla y León?
Hosts Real Valladolid start the weekend in 13th, but are only three points clear of the relegation zone in a very congested area of the table.
Blanquivioletas have lost both matches since the restart, most-recently going down 1-0 at Son Moix last Saturday.
The winner came deep into stoppage time, with Kenedy giving away a needless free-kick and Mallorca taking full advantage.
Pacheta’s team have now lost three on the spin, and four of their last five, their only victory since 22 October coming against Elche, and everyone beats Elche!
So, who will claim three points in an important fixture for both at Estadio José Zorrilla?
