Match preview

Every game is crucial for Valencia right now as they seek to extend their 36-year stay in the top division.

Last time out, los Che were demolished 3-0 by in-form Atlético Madrid at Cívitas Metropolitano.

Before that though, Rubén Baraja’s men had won back-to-back home games, beating both Real Sociedad and then Osasuna 1-0.

Nevertheless, Valencia do start the weekend in the relegation zone, desperately needing another victory in front of their own supporters in this Monday night fixture.

Rayo Vallecano meanwhile are currently winless in six, form that has derailed their European hopes.

Los Franjirrojos were held to a 2-2 draw by Girona in their last outing, with Óscar Trejo and Isi Palazón messing up a Johan Cruijff-Jesper Olsen style pass penalty.

This has seen Andoni Iraola’s side slide down to eighth place, albeit only below Athletic on goal difference.

Will Rayo plunge Valencia into more peril, or can the home team claim a crucial victory at Mestalla?
