ATL vs RVL Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
It’s a mini Madrid Derby as Rayo Vallecano host Atletico Madrid in the La Liga match at Estadio de Vallecas, in Madrid district of Puente de Vallecas, Spain, on Saturday night (IST).
The visitors are flirting with the danger all season, and are sitting one point adrift of the safety coming into their encounter against Atletico Madrid. But the hosts will be aiming to make the most of Atletico’s recent slump to get a shocking result.
Despite losing the last two games, Vallecano can take some heart from their recent showing. Out of the total six wins, five have come in the last 10 games. That’s why there is a belief amongst Vallecano’s supporters that the club can avoid the drop this season.
Atletico Madrid meanwhile suffered two straight losses for the first time since 2016. The last one being a chastening 1-3 home defeat in the Madrid derby against Real Madrid.
For long they have been keeping up the pace with the reigning Spanish Champions Barcelona. But the negative results in the last two matches have left the Rojiblancos at 3rd and 8 points off the pace.
