Rayo Vallecano's Jose Movilla: We can surprise Real Madrid if we play at our best

The veteran midfielder believes his team can extend Madrid's poor run, while admitting that playing at the Bernabeu is an extra source of motivation
Rayo Vallecano midfielder Jose Maria Movilla says his side will be looking to inflict more misery on Real Madrid in their upcoming La Liga match.

The Bernabeu outfit head into Saturday's encounter on the back of a defeat and a draw, two games which put them three points adrift of league leaders Valencia.

This has been Madrid's worst league start in the last seven seasons, and the team will be keen to get back to winning ways in front of their own crowd.

However, Movilla said he feels his side are equipped to frustrate the capital club, saying at a press conference: "We will go out to play a good match, we have all the hope in the world.

"All the players who face Madrid have an extra motivation and a lot of hope, especially when the match is at such a beautiful venue as the Santiago Bernabeu.

"I hope we will be at their level, if we play like we know we have a chance to earn a good result, although they have great players."

Rayo Vallecano, who come off a 2-1 defeat against Levante, sit 10th in the league standings on five points.
