Bolo's Ponferradina threatens Rayo's sixth position

Only one point separates the two in their fight for the playoff. The franjirrojos chain two defeats at home. The same as the Bercianos at home.


So close and so far. Only one point separates Rayo (41) from Ponferradina (40). A minimum income that is the key to the playoff (follow the game live on Hence the significance of this duel for sixth place. The franjirrojos arrive immersed in a bad streak: they have only added four points from the last fifteen and have two consecutive defeats in Vallecas (Mallorca and Tenerife), their strength until just a few weeks ago. While the Bercianos, intractable in El Toralín, are more vulnerable at home, where they have lost in their last two games (Zaragoza and Tenerife).

Iraola will have to deal with the important loss of Isi Palazón, who confirmed his positive for coronavirus and will miss the clash with his ex. To take over from the right wing, Antoñín (he already did in La Rosaleda), Andrés Martín and even Babe are running. In addition, the Rayista coach will be aware of the evolution of Comesaña and Mario Hernández, with discomfort, and will be able to count on Saveljich after serving a sanction. The main doubt lies, one more day, in the goal, where the coach is alternating Dimitrievski and Luca.

Bolo, for his part, returns to what was his home. Vallecas still fondly remembers that tall forward from his golden age, in Primera and UEFA. The Basque coach, whose name rang in summer to occupy the Rayista bench, has taken the measure of his ex. And is that his Ponfe has never lost against the Strip: he has two wins and a draw. Bolo does not recover any of the injured (Ríos Reina, Manu Hernando, Kaxe and Iván Rodríguez) and his intention is not to touch too much the eleven that beat Mirandés. The only variation could be in the left band.
