Rayo Vallecano is looking to be back up there competing with the best as soon as possible. Following a relegation that could be classed as unfair given the level of play they delivered, the team coached by Sandoval won't be licking their wounds and instead will be giving it their all in their bid for promotion. They deserve to be in the first division.
On their long and arduous road, they are coming up against Girona, one of the revelations of recent seasons. Following several good seasons and a place in the play-offs, Girona eventually lost their chance for promotion against Osasuna. A clash between two teams aspiring to be in the play-offs for the right to play in the first division next season.
