In its efforts to return to the First Division after relegation last season, Rayo Vallecano must give its all to fulfil the objective. The Rayo fans have never abandoned their team, as shown when they continued filling the stands when the team played in the Second B league. They must cheer the players on.
On this occasion, they will face an old rival from the First Division in recent seasons, Almeria. Following its relegation two seasons ago, it put together a strong line-up to get promoted last season. However, things did not go as they had expected and they spent most of the season in the lower part of the table.
