Real Madrid visits Almeria on Saturday, August 19 and they are going to be hoping to kick off their 2023–24 La Liga season with consecutive victories. The game will take place at Estadio del Mediterráneo in Almeria.
With a draw versus Espanyol in the final match of the previous season, Almeria was able to maintain their place in La Liga for the current campaign. They were quite fortunate that Valladolid lost to Getafe in their encounter and were able to maintain their lead by one place. This team from the southern region of Spain did not have a strong beginning to the current season. They suffered a 0-2 defeat at home to Rayo Vallecano. They are going to compete on their home turf another time, but in an encounter that will be significantly more challenging. Almeria lost because of brief distractions that led to them giving up a pair of penalties during their initial half. Almeria started the game on the attack, but Rayo Vallecano converted both of their penalty kicks. Almeria had a lot of opportunities to score and Sergio Akieme played admirably, but it was enough for them to even draw the match.
Contrarily, Real Madrid began the 2023/2024 La Liga season in impressive fashion, defeating Athletic Bilbao 2-0 away at San Mames. Given that Almeria suits the Spanish giant, an away victory ought to be taken into consideration. Karim Benzema has ceased to be a member of the squad, so Jude Bellingham, a summer acquisition who scored his first goal over the weekend, will be someone to keep an eye on for the opposition. However, Carlo Ancelotti’s team’s upcoming few months will be considerably more challenging as a result of the ACL tears suffered by two important players, goalie Thibaut Courtois and center back Eder Militao. Courtois has already been temporarily replaced by Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa who is coming in as a loan, but they might need to look at the transfer market to find a replacement back.
