This is a crunch game for both the teams, with the whole season hanging on the result. Perhaps. Maybe.
For Sevilla, the Champions League football is the target, and at the moment only two points separate them from Getafe CF in fourth place. That said, they lost a six-pointer against the Azulones at the weekend and so need a win in this game to get their season back on track.
While for Rayo Vallecano, there is a small matter of securing the top-flight status for yet another season. They can't afford to lose, and even a draw would perhaps drag them deep into the relegation pit. There won't be an escape as a negative result could leave them 9 points adrift of the safety. And with just four games remaining after this round of games, it's safe to say that their season would be over.
As mentioned above, Sevilla did lose their last game. But the manner in which they catapulted at Getafe, was a great cause for concern for Joaquín Caparrós. They must improve to have any chance of finishing in the top-4. For Getafe are looking like a real threat for the Champions League places.
