Real Madrid still sits in third place behind Atletico Madrid and Barcelona. They’re also coming off a tough loss to Barcelona in the derby last week. Rayo Vallecano on the other hand is struggling to find their footing in La Liga and sit in the relegation zone at the moment.
“It’s a very nice game,” Rayo Vallecano midfielder Adrian said, via ESPN FC. “One is always eager to play against these opponents. It’s true that we’re in a lowly position, but if you look at the table then three points would put us back in a very good position.
“So I think it’s too soon to panic and I know that this team will fight to the very end. Clearly it will be difficult to hurt a team like Madrid, who are one of the world’s best five.
Madrid finally saw ‘the real Gareth Bale’ in their 7-3 win over Sevilla. Bale had two goals and two assists in the win.
“Tonight everyone saw the real Gareth,” Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti said, via ESPN FC. “He played really well, showing fantastic skills. It takes time [to adapt] but it was a necessity. Now he doesn’t have problems physically and he is improving his confidence, so he will be very important for us in the future.”
