When Almeria continues their La Liga campaign at home against Villarreal on Saturday afternoon, they will be attempting to build on their remarkable triumph over Barcelona. On Sunday night, Rubi’s team defeated the league leaders 1-0, and Villarreal’s most recent game saw them snap a four-game losing streak by defeating Getafe 2-1.
Last Sunday, Almeria surprised everyone by defeating Barcelona 1-0. El Bilal Toure scored the winning goal against Xavi’s team, which was hoping to get back on track after losing to Manchester United in the Europa League. With 15 games remaining in the current season, the outcome put La Union on 25 points, placing them in 15th place in the table and two points above the relegation zone.
With 22 points from 12 games this season, Almeria has the fourth-best record in front of home supporters, just three points behind Real Madrid’s total at the Bernabeu. Almeria’s home form this season is likely to be vital when it comes to potentially staying in the league. For the first time since 2015, Rubi’s squad is attempting to stay consecutive seasons at this level of football, and the triumph over Barcelona followed a stretch of three straight losses in Spain’s top division.

In contrast, Villarreal will enter the game off of a 2-1 victory over Getafe, which was their first triumph in Spain’s top division since January 22. The Yellow Submarine had fallen to ninth place in the standings after four straight losses, but their victory over Getafe last time out saw them move up to seventh, level on points with Rayo Vallecano in sixth.
However, Quique Setien’s squad is eight points back of Atletico Madrid in fourth place, making it exceedingly unlikely that they will contend for a Champions League spot this season. While still in Europe, Villarreal is getting ready to play Anderlecht in the Europa Conference League’s round of 16. The first leg is scheduled for March 9.
The Yellow Submarine have been successful at home in the league this season, collecting 22 points from 11 games, but they have struggled away from home, winning just three of 12 games and losing six times. Villarreal defeated Rojiblancos 2-1 in the rematch earlier this season, while the two teams split the points in a scoreless draw when they previously faced in Almeria in March 2015.
