In game that could not be a more stark study in contrasts, high-flying FC Barcelona, a team that features some of the world’s most glamorous and highest-paid footballers, hosts Madrid-based side Rayo Vallecano — a team that is literally the subject of a book titled Working Class Heroes, per Football Book Reviews. The team from the blue-collar, bustling Madrid district of Vallecas must fight for their survival in just their first season back in Spain’s top flight, as they now sit in 19th place and seemingly destined for relegation, when they take on the defending La Liga champs in a match that will live stream from the Camp Nou.
