A huge match at the bottom of the La Liga standings is set for this weekend, as two of the bottom four in the table lock horns. Valencia will be looking to record a third win in six, while Almeria are hoping to end a four-game winless run in the league.
La Liga Preview
This match on Sunday comes at a crucial stage for both Valencia and Almeria, as they both still find themselves locked in a battle for survival. Valencia will be slightly more confident coming into this showdown, as they have moved out of the bottom three following two wins and a draw over their previous five. However, they will need a positive result this weekend, as they are currently outside the bottom three on goal difference.
The Spanish giants managed to rescue a point in their previous La Liga match, as they scored with just eight minutes remaining to hold Rayo Vallecano to a 1-1 draw. Their equalising effort was scored from the penalty spot by Justin Kluivert.
Almeria will be the team with home advantage this weekend, as they look for a huge victory that could move them up to 15th in the standings. However, the Spanish side comes into this fixture after having gone four league matches without a win. Over that period, they have suffered two defeats. But, they come into this weekend after picking up draws in each of their last two.
The most recent of those came away from home against Celta Vigo last Sunday. It was a battling performance on that afternoon by Almeria, as they scored twice in the first half. However, they were eventually made to settle for a point following an equaliser with three minutes of the first half remaining.
Almeria vs Valencia Head to Head
Valencia has picked up seven wins from the previous ten matches between these sides in La Liga. That includes two wins in the previous three meetings. However, the previous meeting between the teams this season ended in a 2-2 draw.
Almeria vs Valencia Prediction
Goals could be on the agenda this weekend, as each of the previous seven have seen over 2.5 goals. However, the slight preference leans toward the team playing at home, as Almeria bid to pick up just a second win in six league matches against Valencia on Sunday.
