CEV vs RVL Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Rayo Vallecano can move out of the relegation zone when they host Celta Vigo in La Liga at Estadio de Vallecas, in the Madrid district of Puente de Vallecas, tomorrow, on Friday night (IST).
At the moment it looks like as if Rayo Vallecano’s stay at the top-tier of Spanish football would turn out to be a short one. With 16 points from the first 18 games, they are 19th in the table, three points off safety.
But this is a very crucial game as not only they could cut the gap on Celta Vigo to just two points, but they would also be going level on points with the 16th and 17th placed teams for the time being.
Last time around, Rayo won 1-0 against fellow relegation rivals Real Valladolid. But the three points they earned didn’t give them as much an advantage they would have hoped for considering five of the bottom six teams won in the last round of league matches.
The next few weeks could be season-defining for Rayo Vallecano as they will be at home in three of their next four games. Vallecano must target at least a couple of wins from those games to move out of the relegation zone.
Considering the profile and the talent of players at Balaídos, there is a real sense amongst the football pundits and fans that Celta Vigo have been underperforming since last season. They finished 13th last season with 49 points, just six points better than 17th placed Leganes.
Celta will be travelling for this game and their away form is a big worry ahead of this game. They are averaging a meagre 1 point in away games this season, having won just twice in the first 8 on the road heading into this encounter.
To make matter worse for them, their star striker Iago Aspas is out injured. The former Liverpool striker is the man who makes the team tick in the offensive department. The Spain international has scored 10 goals this season. While his partner Maxi Gomez is less effective in his absence.

CEV vs RVL Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Rayo Vallecano have a very good recent record against Celta Vigo, winning four times in the last six matches. While the last meeting was also won by Rayo, a 3-0 scoreline in favour of them.
And with Iago Aspas out and Celta’s away from, we think a home win is a decent probability.
