The Dons opened the scoring through Dean Lewington but an excellent double from Rayo's Johan Mojica put the team that finished eighth in La Liga last season in the driving seat.

Two goals in quick succession from Luke Chadwick and summer signing Jason Banton put Karl Robinson's men into a shock lead just before half-time.

From that point the Dons never looked back and when Darren Potter netted their fourth of the evening the result was all but confirmed.

Rayo, however, did manage a consolation goal in the closing stages with a penalty from Adrian Gonzalez.

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
