Barcelona still has a chance to occupy the top position of the La Liga standings. However, the chances are quite slim. Until entering jornada 34, Barcelona was in 2nd place in the standings with 63 points, a difference of 15 points from Madrid.
Mathematically, the Blaugrana must pick a winning streak in the remaining 6 matches until the end of the season. With this scenario, Barca will pocket 81 points.
To be able to occupy the top position of the table, Barca also have to wait for the results of another match that Madrid played. The Blaugrana can take the throne if Los Blancos continue to slip in the remaining 5 matches and are only able to pocket 2 points in that period.
Barcelona vs Rayo Vallecano Prediction
Barca will welcome this week with a home game against Rayo Vallecano. Xavi Hernandez’s troops tried to avenge the defeat he suffered in the first meeting. At that time, they fell 1-0 at the headquarters of Rayo.

In terms of team quality, Barcelona is far more superior than the opposing team, especially in terms of attack. The Blaugrana have scored a total of 61 goals this season, almost 2 times more than Rayo Vallecano’s (33 goals).
Even so, Rayo should not be underestimated. Andoni Iraola’s squad seems to be starting to find their best performance. After failing to win in 12 consecutive matches, they were able to bounce back and get positive results last week against Espanyol. Acting as the guest team, Radamel Falcao and colleagues won with a narrow score of 0-1.
“Mentally this is an important award, but in my opinion we had some games that were not very good,” said coach Andoni Iraola in a post-match interview, reported by AS Diario.
“We believed and continue to believe, that this was an idea to get more points. I am happy that this match, very similar to the other games we have played, has gone in our favor.”
Not only Rayo who got positive results last week. Barcelona also managed to bring home 3 points from Jornada 33. On April 21, Xavi’s troops managed to win 0-1 from Sociedad headquarters. Despite winning, Xavi is still not satisfied with his team’s performance. According to him, Sergio Busquets and colleagues have not played well in this match.
“I’m not satisfied with the game. We suffered in the second half. We have to be honest and self-critical. We haven’t played well and we need to improve,” he commented, reported by Marca.
Real Sociedad caused problems for the Blaugrana in that match. Xavi also claims that his team has been made to suffer more than any other game since he took charge.
“Jordi, Ronald, Pique … we suffered a lot, there was a lot of fatigue and a very demanding schedule,” he continued.
Problable Lineup: Barcelona vs Rayo Vallecano
Hosts Barcelona will again lose Sergi Roberto, Samuel Umtiti and Pedri for this match.
In addition to these three players, Barca also have the potential to lose Gerard Pique who suffered an injury last week against Sociedad. Apart from Pique, Dani Alves and Ronald Araujo are also doubtful.
On the other side, Rayo Vallecano has no new injury problems ahead of the visit to Camp Nou. Martin Merquelanz and Esteban Saveljich will remain sidelined, with knee and hamstring problems respectively.
The following is the prediction for the main 11 lineup of the two teams:
Rayo Vallecano (4-2-3-1): Dimitrievski; Balliu, Maras, Catena, Fran Garcia; Valentin, Comesana; Palazon, Trejo, Alvaro Garcia; Guardiola | Coach: Andoni Iraola
