Vallecano are on a three-game winning run in the league, which includes the two memorable results against Sevilla and Real Madrid.
Rayo Vallecano will hope to continue with their good run of form when they take on Celta Vigo in La Liga on Thursday. The home side are heading into this match on the back of registering two massive shocks. After winning at Sevilla, Vallecano stunned defending champions Real Madrid in their last game. It was a result that sent shockwaves across Spain, as Vallecano have blown the La Liga title race wide open with their emphatic 3-2 victory. They now have an opportunity to continue that form into the Thursday night fixture.
Rayo Vallecano began the La Liga season in a mixed form but seemed to have picked up pace in recent games. They are on a three-game winning run in the league, which includes the two memorable results against Sevilla and Real Madrid. Vallecano are placed eight in the table and have 21 points from 13 games. Meanwhile, Celta Vigo find themselves in the relegation spot, as they are currently occupying the 18th spot and have 11 points from 13 matches. They have lost five of their last six matches in the league and have a difficult task to end that poor run on Thursday night.

There are not many injury worries currently present on both sides ahead of this contest. Rayo Vallecano’s biggest concern would be in the form of Andres Martín. Apart from him, they have almost everyone fit and ready for this clash. On the other hand, Celta Vigo will miss Augusto Solari and his absence will be a big blow for the team. Besides, Luca de la Torre and Hugo Mallo will also join him on the sidelines. Otherwise, Gabri Veiga is back from suspension for them.
Rayo Vallecano possible line-up: Dimitrievski, Balliu, Lejeune, Catena, F. Garcia, Comesana, Valentin; Palazon, Trejo, A. Garcia, Camello
Celta Vigo possible line-up: Marchesin; Mingueza, Nunez, Aidoo, Galan; Oscar, Beltran, Veiga, Cervi; Aspas, Larsen
