There will be crucial action at the bottom of the La Liga standings on Sunday, as two sides that are currently situated in the bottom four lock horns. Almeria will be on the road against Alaves, as they continue their hunt for a first league win of the campaign.
La Liga Preview
There will be an interesting clash in La Liga on Sunday, as all eyes will be on the battle at the bottom of the league standings. Almeria are already coming under increasing pressure at this early stage of the season, as they are the only team in Spain’s top flight that are yet to win a match in the competition.
That poor start to the season has seen them cut adrift at the bottom of the league standings, as they are already six points from safety. Their recent form continues to be a huge concern at this stage, as they have suffered defeats in each of their last three and four of their previous five. No side has conceded more goals in La Liga than Almeria at this stage of the campaign,
Alaves have fared slightly better than their rivals at this stage, as they have landed two victories from their opening eleven matches. However, they are still threatened with the risk of dropping into the bottom three, as they are just three points clear of 18th-placed Celta Vigo.
The hosts come into this match on Sunday having gone five without a victory in the competition. But, they have suffered just two defeats over that period. Their latest loss was suffered on the road against Atletico Madrid, but positives would have been taken from their display, as their Champions League-chasing rivals could only secure victory by a one-goal margin.
Alaves vs Almeria Head to Head
This will only be the fourth meeting between these sides since the start of 2014, with two of the previous meetings coming in the second division. However, Almeria were comprehensive 5-0 winners in the Copa del Rey in the previous encounter between these rivals in January 2021.
Alaves vs Almeria Prediction
Things are looking pretty bleak for Almeria at this stage of the season, as they have been way below the standard required in recent weeks. Therefore, we will be siding with Alaves to land maximum points to move clear of the bottom three places in La Liga.
