Alcorcón and Rayo dispute today a duel in Madrid for the promotion

Alcorcón and Rayo They dispute a derby marked by the possibility of reaching sixth place in the case of the Vallecano team, while the potters, if they achieve victory, would make a good jump in the classification and would be seventh tied with the promotion zone.

Much at stake in an atypical Madrid derby without an audience in Santo Domingo. Elche's draw in Las Palmas would allow the Lightning finish sixth if he wins and at Alcorcón, in case of adding the three points, to equal the illicit set although having the worst goal difference would be out of the promotion.

Alcorcón is untouchable as a visitor and is in fact the only undefeated team in the category far from their stadium, but in Santo Domingo their performance is very poor and to date they have let out 35 of the 51 points at stake.

The potter set, with 48 points in the table, is only two of the fifty in which they figure the salvation and therefore from now on his maximum illusion, also without pressure, is to dream of returning to play a promotion seven years after doing it for the last time in 2013.

Fran Fernández will do rotations in his team due to the accumulation of matches and one of the novelties planned in the eleven is that of playmaker Juan Diego Molina 'Stoichkov', author of 16 goals this season and who rested in Almería.

At eleven it is likely that the Venezuelan winger will follow Samuel Sosa, who regained ownership in the last two games and also had a leading role with his performances.

In front will be the Lightning, who reaches this derby after two bad games against Deportivo and Sporting de Gijón, both settled with draws, in which he conceded four goals and lost the opportunity to get into promotion positions,

Since the competition resumed Rayo has played five games and has not lost any. He has added nine points out of fifteen, but his game in none of them has been fluid and during many phases has been too predictable.

The main problem of Lightning, and in which it affects the most Paco Jémez, he is the one of defensive security, since he concedes goals easily, he does not know how to dominate the times with the score in favor and he makes big mistakes behind that are costing him many points.

For this match, Jémez has the important loss in goal of the Macedonian international Stole Dimitrievski, sanctioned. To replace the two options that the rayista technician is considering, and of which he has not given any clues, are those of the veteran Roberto Santamaría, 35 years old and still not debuting this course, and that of the youth squad Miguel Ángel Morro, the club's future bet .

The other novelty will be in the center of the field with the return of Mario Suárez, who played a penalty game with Sporting, and who could replace Oscar Valentin.

This will be the Madrid fourth derby in Second between Alcorcón and Rayo in Santo Domingo. The other three ended with a victory for the pottery team against the Vallecano, whose last victory in Alcorcón was on February 4, 2007 in Segunda B.
