Sevilla travel to Madrid to take on Rayo Vallecano in a few hours. Rayo is sitting one spot ahead of Betis in 19th place in La Liga, fighting to get out of the relegation spot. Since the new year, Rayo is 2-4-1 and are coming off a 6 goal drudging by Barcelona.
Our beloved Sevilla side isn’t fairing much better going 1-3-3 since the start of the year. Sevilla is coming of a mid week Europa league tie with NK Maribor picking up two important away goals.
The game this morning is no doubt a must win for our boys and a great game to hopefully regain some form. A win would put Sevilla in 7th place which is a European qualifying spot. Rayo hasn’t beaten Sevilla since January 2012, so hopefully that streak continues. I’m not sure who’s out other than Cheryshev.
Side note, I really hate the noon starts, especially when Bein Sports here in the US doesn’t show 6am games for some reason meaning I have no way to DVR the game; No way I’m waking up that early.
