Rayo Vallecano Vs Real Madrid Dream11 Prediction: The SportsRush brings you the dream11 picks between Rayo Vallecano and Real Madrid.
Real Madrid were held to a frustrating draw at Getafe on Thursday, but they will be hoping to put that disappointment away by securing a victory against Rayo Vallecano. The Los Blancos are third in the league table, whilst the hosts are sitting on the bottom of the list and have very minimal chance of surviving in the Spanish top flight.
The leading La Liga holders have won just two games out of the last five and Rayo have just once in the last timeframe. It will be an interesting game as both the sides are battle out for three points.
We shall look at the dream11 pick between Rayo Vallecano and Real Madrid.
Rayo Vallecano Vs Real Madrid Dream11 Team
Keylor Navas: Keylor Navas has been picked over Thibaut Courtois by Zinedine Zidane. The Costa Rican has been integral in Zidane’s plans and he will continue her services between the sticks. He will guard the crossbar on Sunday and the Los Blancos have a higher chance of keeping a clean sheet.
Tito: The 33-year-old has been the heartbeat of Rayo Vallecano’s defence lately. He has made 12 appearances this season in the right back position and continues to have an influence in the backline. He has not scored or assisted during the stint, but he wins plenty of duels.
Sergio Ramos: Sergio Ramos has not at his best this season. The Spanish International has leaked plenty of goals this campaign, but he is expected to shut down the attackers of Rayo Vallecano. He is the assigned penalty taker and has scored 9 goals in all competitions.
Alex Galvez: Alex Galvez is another defender who has looked bright for Rayo Vallecano. The Spanish International has scored once this campaign as he possesses a threat from the set pieces. He will keep his place on Sunday and would have his say from the set pieces.
Marcelo: Marcelo watched his side from the bench on Thursday night and Sergio Reguilon took his place. Albeit slowing down, the Brazilian International is continued to be highly rated by Zidane who believes his attacking abilities. He has scored twice and assisted twice throughout this season.
Alvaro Medran: Alvaro Medran has been one of the pivotal midfielders for Rayo Vallecano. The Spanish International has made 17 top-flight appearances, scoring once throughout this campaign. He likes to sit back with the defence and dictate the play from the back.
Marco Asensio (C): Marco Asensio was favoured out by Julen Lopetegui and Santiago Solari, but he has been ever present in the starting lineup since Zidane has taken over the club. He has scored once and assisted four times this season, but he has stepped up his game to improve himself gradually.
Luka Modric: Luka Modric has looked fine in recent weeks, but he has struggled to replicate his last season form. The Croatian International has scored thrice and assisted six times this campaign. His ability to strike long rangers and pick out passes makes him the best midfielder in the La Liga.
Alvaro Garcia: Alvaro Garcia has the capability to play through both the flanks and score goals. The Spanish International has found the back of the net four times and has another two assists as well. It has been a tough campaign for him, but he is the second best player in the forward line.
Raul de Tomas: Raul De Tomas is spending his time away from Real Madrid on loan at Rayo Vallecano. The Spanish International has scored 14 goals in the La Liga for this club and continues to impress the fans with his devastating finishing.
Mariano Diaz: Karim Benzema, who picked up an injury against Getafe is assessed ahead of this game. Marino Diaz will be handed over the start in the absence of him and he will look to find his feet at Real Madrid.
