Real Madrid vs Almeria Prediction and Match Preview

Real Madrid’s La Liga Pursuit

Despite an impressive run across all competitions, Real Madrid finds themselves chasing Girona for the top spot in La Liga.

Commanding Home Record

With seven wins on the bounce and a commanding home record, Los Blancos are primed to take another step towards reclaiming the throne when they welcome Almeria to the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday.

Unbeaten Streak and Spanish Super Cup Victory

The Spanish Super Cup final victory over Barcelona was a statement performance, extending Real Madrid’s unbeaten run to a remarkable 21 games across all competitions.

Ancelotti’s men haven’t tasted defeat in La Liga for 13 matches, and at home, they’re an impenetrable fortress, losing only once all season.

Almeria’s Struggles

Almeria, on the other hand, are languishing at the bottom of the table, yet to register a single league win. They’ve lost a staggering 14 of their 20 matches and, on the road, their record is even worse, with six consecutive defeats.

Head-to-Head Dominance

Head-to-head history strongly favors the home side. Real Madrid has won all seven of their home encounters with Almeria, scoring at least three goals in each match. Their last meeting, an away fixture in August, ended in a comfortable 3-1 victory for Los Blancos.

Predictions and Betting Options

With Almeria’s leaky defense and anemic attack, a high-scoring encounter seems unlikely. Therefore, predicting Real Madrid to win with over 2.5 goals offers a promising betting option. The Asian Handicap (-2.25) for Real Madrid also holds potential, considering their home dominance and Almeria’s dismal form.

Opportunity for Real Madrid

Sunday’s clash presents a golden opportunity for Real Madrid to tighten their grip on second place and maintain their blistering form. While Almeria may possess the underdog spirit, it seems unlikely they can withstand the relentless onslaught of the Santiago Bernabeu. Brace yourselves for another dominant display from Los Blancos as they march towards reclaiming the La Liga crown.
