Nearly everyone is up for selection, with just one fitness concern for the Leganés manager Asier Garitano to contend with from an otherwise complete set of players. Daniel Lasure (Testicular Cancer) is out of contention.

Due to a completely healthy squad to choose from, Rayo Vallecano manager Andoni Iraola has zero fitness worries whatsoever coming into this match.
