Real Madrid host Rayo Vallecano in what will be the last game before the upcoming FIFA break. Los Blancos have gained some momentum recently with wins against Elche and Shakhtar, even though the performances were not as great and convincing as some fans hoped.
Real Madrid predicted XI: Courtois, Carvajal, Alaba, Militao, Mendy, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Asensio, Vinicius, Benzema.
Rayo Vallecano predicted XI: Dimitrievski, Balliu, Saveljich, Catena, Garcia, Ciss, Comesaña, Palazon, Trejo, Garcia, Falcao.
Asensio and Vazquez will keep competing for the spot on the right wing. Ancelotti chose Vazquez against Shakhtar, but that could change today if he thinks that Madrid will need more help offensively.
Rayo have played great football so far this season and are currently sitting sixth in the table, so Real Madrid should not take this match for granted. Rayo will likely try to defend tightly and then hope to find a goal through Falcao or through set pieces.
