Real Madrid will welcome Rayo Vallecano on Sunday night as they try to collect maximum points in this home encounter at Santiago Bernabeu. Los Blancos come into the match on the back of a 2-1 victory over Barcelona in their last fixture, so we can expect them to come out strong.
Carlo Ancelotti will opt for a 4-3-1-2 formation and could make a few changes to the starting XI for this game. Hence, we can expect to see Eduardo Camavinga and Fran Garcia to play from the start.
4-1-3-2 Real Madrid Predicted XI Vs Rayo Vallecano
Kepa Arrizabalaga will feature in between the sticks for Los Blancos after conceding a goal in his last appearance. David Alaba will play alongside Antonio Rudiger at the centre of Ancelotti’s defence as they try to keep things solid at the back during the game.
Dani Carvajal will fill in as the right-back while Fran Garcia hopes to catch the eye on the other flank as the left-back. Both of them will get the freedom to express themselves in the opponent’s half and offer adequate support to the front players.
Lucas Vasquez will provide cover for the defensive positions on the bench.
Eduardo Camavinga will anchor the defensive midfield position for Los Blancos as they try to dominate possession in the middle of the park.
Jude Bellingham will be given the freedom to pull the strings from the number ten position. He will have to carry most of the creative burden for the away team in the final third. Toni Kroos and Federico Valverde will also play ahead of Camavinga but will look to provide support from the wide areas.
Luka Modric and Aurelien Tchouameni will be named on the bench and might come on to make an impact in the second half if Ancelotti decides to call upon their services.
Vinicius Junior will play from the start alongside Rodrygo as they lead the charge for the Madrid outfit up top. Both of them need to link-up with each other well so that they can do enough damage for Real Madrid to grab all three points from this home contest.
Joselu will be available for selection on the bench as he awaits his chance to influence the game in the final quarter of the game if needed.
