Rayo Vallecano vs Getafe: Madrid derby at Vallecas

Rayo Vallecano vs Getafe: Madrid derby at Vallecas

Rayo Vallecano vs Getafe – Campo de Futbol de Vallecas – Sunday 21st October – Kick off 11am UK time

Sunday’s early kick off sees Getafe make the short trip to the Vallecas to face a Rayo Vallecano side who find themselves in the bottom three.

Both sides lost their last game before the international break by a goal to nil, Rayo in another derby at Leganes and Getafe at home to Levante and will be looking to bounce back with a win on Sunday.

Three points for the hosts could see them climb out of the drop zone depending on results elsewhere over the weekend while Getafe know that a win would see them move into the top half of the league.

These sides last met in the Segunda in 2017 with Getafe winning 1-0 at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez thanks to a last minute Jose Antonio Dorado own goal but the earlier meeting that season had went the way of Rayo with a 2-0 win.
