MADRID, 10 Apr. (EUROPE PRESS) –
This Monday (9:00 p.m.), Valencia hurries its European options in Vallecas, in the last game of the thirty-first day of LaLiga Santander, before focusing on the exciting Copa del Rey final, all against a Rayo that needs to win for the first time in 2022 to avoid being involved in problems.
Those of José Bordalás, who have accumulated 41 points after five consecutive days without losing, have sixth place to ten, a considerable distance but not insurmountable in the absence of eight dates to be played. Last weekend’s draw against Cádiz (0-0) lowered expectations, but confirmed the team’s defensive improvement.
Without the sanctioned Mouctar Diakhaby and with the doubt of the Maxi Gómez headdress, the ‘che’ team rehearses its set-up for the final on April 23 at La Cartuja, an appointment that will force the coach from Alicante to shoot the headlines against the Madrid team , but without risk.
For its part, Rayo has already accumulated 11 games without knowing victory, and only its good start to the season has prevented it from ending up in relegation positions, now five points below its 33. Its three points out of a possible 33 seriously compromise it.
Andoni Iraola, who will not be able to sit on the bench due to suspension, will lament the absence of Santi Comesaña, sent off last day, and the injured Merquelanz, Saveljich and Radamel Falcao. In exchange, he gets Óscar Trejo back.
