On Saturday, August 19, 2023 Almeria will compete against Real Madrid in the Matchday 2 of the La Liga match. Watch here, Almeria vs Real Madrid live streaming, preview and how to watch it.
Almeria will host Real Madrid at the Juegos Mediterraneos Stadium on Saturday (19/8) evening in the second week of La Liga 2023/24. The home team is trying to bounce back from defeat in their first match, while the visitors want to continue their positive trend.
Almeria lost 0-2 at home to Rayo Vallecano in their opener. They had to concede absolute superiority to their opponents, having conceded two goals in less than half an hour. Almeria’s home record is terrible with five straight defeats and will likely increase to six when they take on Real Madrid.
On the other hand, Real Madrid won 2-0 over Bilbao, but the royal team’s happiness was not perfect. Many important players who were injured made coach Carlo Ancelotti a headache. With this situation, Real must rely on attack to cover the defense, hoping that Bellingham will continue to shine and Vinicius will be lucky to score again.
Regarding player strength, Almeria will lose two players due to injury, namely Leo Baptistao and Martin Svidersky. Coach Moreno is also likely to change his line-up after the loss to Rayo, with Marc Pubill and Arribas the real chances to start. Luis Suarez – a striker from Colombia, is still the main hope on the front line for the home team.
While in the Madrid camp is being hit by a ligament injury problem. One by one, Arda Gurler, Thibaut Courtois and Eder Militao were threatened with being sidelined for several months. Ferland Mendy and Dani Ceballos have had calf and ankle problems.
Coach Ancelotti still has enough players to replace them at the moment, with Rudiger set to partner Alaba in central defence, while new arrivals Kepa will replace Courtois in goal.
Talking about the results of the two teams’ previous meetings, Real Madrid have dominated meetings with Almeria in recent years. In the last seven matches between the two teams, Real won six and drew just once. In addition, Los Blancos have always scored goals at home to Almeria for the past 14 years.
The last game between the two sides was in May 2015, when Real won 3-0 at Almeria thanks to goals from Cristiano Ronaldo, James Rodriguez and Alvaro Arbeloa.
Based on the latest information above, despite facing many personnel problems, Madrid’s strength is still far superior to Almeria’s. This match could even be a chance for Real’s stars to score a goal feast.
