Villarreal is just one point above the relegation zone after four rounds of the 2023-24 Spanish La Liga season. In their first five matches this season, the Spanish club has only managed one win while conceding nine goals, good for second most in the league.
If Villarreal wants to make a run at a European finish this season, they’ll need to make some adjustments when they return to action this weekend. Villarreal has lost their last two games, allowing a total of seven goals in those defeats. Their most recent loss was a 3-1 setback at the hands of Cadiz, which occurred away from home.
The pressure will be on Almeria as well, since they have yet to win any of their four league games this season. They’ve gotten on the scoresheet four times, which is encouraging, but they’ve let in nine goals through their first two games.
They haven’t won any of their games so far this season, and they’ve already lost three. They, like Villarreal, are looking to bounce back from a loss heading into their first game following the international break. Before the international break, Almeria and Celta Vigo appeared headed for a draw, but the visitors scored with three minutes left to steal the points.
Villarreal’s record versus Almeria is very strong: they have won the last two meetings and five of the previous six. That includes a 2-1 victory in this very matchup last season. The last time Almeria defeated Villarreal, by a score of 4-2 at home, was in May of 2010.
Villarreal has a strong track record in this matchup, so they might be difficult to dismiss this weekend. Despite their sluggish start to the season, their roster is full of talented players. This is definitely going to be a thrilling match to watch considering both teams’ positions.
