Rayo Vallecano host today Gimnastic Tarragona for the day 39 of Spanish Segunda Division. The common target of both opponents is the permanence at the category, with the host being at the moment three points above the relegation zone and the visitors sitting at the 19th place of the table (into the relegation zone). Vallecano remain in an uncomfortable position due to the away defeats to Huesca (2-0) and Alcorcon (2-0) at their last three games. At the same time, they remain unbeaten at their last five home league games, with three wins and two draws. Tarragona achieved on last weekend the 2-2 home draw against Oviedo, but they are without a win at the last four games (0-3-1). They count four draws and two wins at their last six outings on the road.
Midfielder Santi Comesana returns from suspension at the hosts, while coach Michel left defenders Quini and Iniguez and forward Miku out of the squad. Tarragona can count on the likes of back Mossa, midfielder Madinda and forward Uche. Iago Bouzon, Cordero, Jose Carlos and Alex Lopez are out of the squad due to technical decision.
