Rayo Vallecano will host the already-relegated Granada in La Liga on Wednesday.

Granada’s relegation was confirmed in the recently concluded weekend. They have just 21 points after 35 games with four wins, nine draws and 22 defeats. They lost 4-0 against La Liga champions Real Madrid in their last game and will play in the second tier next season.

Rayo Vallecano, meanwhile, aren’t safe from relegation just yet as they sit 16th in the standings. With three games to go, they sit six points above sixth-placed Cadiz. Rayo are winless in their last three games, losing two and drawing one. Hence, a win over Granada would be crucial for them.

Granada are already relegated but would want to end the season on a high and play some good football for their fans. They have two wins and a draw in their last five games but lost their last two games against Sevilla and Real Madrid.

Rayo Vallecano, meanwhile, have one win, two draws, and two defeats in their last five games. They lost against Villarreal and Almeria before playing out a goalless draw at Valencia in their last game.

Rayo desperately needs the points and should be able to beat Granada.
