Deportivo La Coruna will this Monday play host to Rayo Vallecano in La Liga at the Estadio Municipal de Riazor, with the home side looking for a return to winning ways.
The home side enter the fray on the back of a torrid run of form, having not recorded a league win in five games. Such form has seen the club slip to ninth in the league, and should their poor form continue, the club could soon find themselves out of the top half of the table for the first time this season. Looking to help avoid such fate is lead striker Lucas Perez, with the Spaniard looking for a 14th league goal of the season.
Rayo on the other hand romped to a much needed 3-0 win last time out over Celta Vigo- a win that marked their first in nine games. The game also saw the club escape the bottom three of the league, albeit only by one point and one place. Looking to open up that gap with a win this weekend, Rayo’s lead striker Javi Guerra heads into the game looking for a tenth league goal of the season.
