In the opening weekend of the 2022-23 La Liga season, Almeria and Real Madrid will face each other at Estadio de los Juegos Mediterráneos on Sunday. This game, Madrid is considered by far the better side and should be able to overpower their opponents with ease. It is hard to see anything but a convincing win for Carlo Ancelotti’s side. There is a chance that Almeria could score, but that seems a bit too optimistic for them.
Almeria is ready to play in La Liga as they come off a recent promotion after dominating the 2021–22 Segunda Division. They won the title in the second division last season after picking up 81 points from 42 matches, level on points with second-placed Real Valladolid, who also finished on 81 points but had an inferior goal difference. Rubi’s side are expected to fight for survival in La Liga this season, and they have to do it the hard way, kicking off their campaign against the champions.
Ancelotti’s side won the La Liga title last season and won it convincingly with as many as 13 points more than second-placed and bitter rivals Barcelona. It was one of the most convincing victories from Madrid in recent history. They also won the UEFA Champions League last season. On their way to their European success, Madrid won against Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool.
While this is an important match for Real Madrid as it’s their first of their 2022-23 campaign, they just had a great game at the UEFA Super Cup on Wednesday. The defending La Liga champions faced last season’s winners of the UEFA Europa League, Eintracht Frankfurt, and they ended up picking a very convincing 2-0 victory. This could be a good opportunity for Almeria to look into Ancelotti’s side and figure out their weaknesses, that’s if they have any at all.
