Real Madrid face Rayo Vallecano at the Bernabeu to extend their race for the league title
Real Madrid will be facing a top-flight and in form La-Liga side, Rayo Vallecano, on Saturday night by 9 pm (WAT).
A win by the Los Blancos will extend their winning run and a title charge in the league despite their ferocious opponent.
Los Blancos are currently second in the table, with one point behind leaders Real Sociedad. At the same time, Rayo occupies sixth, having collected 20 points from their opening 12 games during an impressive start to the season.
Real Madrid has had a fair share of setbacks this season. Still, a solid start to their domestic campaign has seen them win seven matches, draw three and lose one of their 11 matches to accrue 24 points, which has left them in the second spot in the table, one point behind leaders Real Sociedad, who have played one game more. Not a bad performance, so to speak.
Rayo will head to the Bernabeu full of confidence, and It looks to be a tricky fixture for Real Madrid, particularly after an energy-draining Champions League contest. That said, Los Blancos are in good form now, and Ancelotti’s side looks quite promising to put another three points on the board here. “No offense” Rayo Vallecano.
