Rayo Vallecano meets Celta Vigo in an important La Liga tie seeking to bolster their chances of survival on Friday. A win here can lift them up from the relegation zone, taking them to 16th and 17th in La Liga standings. Rayo Vallecano failed to pick points in their last outing, going 1-0 down at Valladolid. However, they will be playing three of their next 4 matches at home against bottom half teams and gives them an opportunity to stay in the top flight next season.
Meanwhile, Celta Vigo have struggled throughout the season and would be hoping for a favourable result. If they drop points here, they will slip back into the relegation fight. The hosts are marred by injury concerns but still have the firepower to see off the challenge.
