Almeria vs Mallorca - Match Preview
⚽ 20 May 2023 - 16:30 GMT +0
Almería fans seem set for a bumpy run-in to end this season’s La Liga (LL) campaign after witnessing their team alternate between wins and losses in each of their last five matches (W2, L3), culminating in a 3-1 defeat to Osasuna last time out. That inconsistency has left them unable to pull clear of those in the dreaded relegation zone and they come into the round with just a slender two-point advantage.
The home faithful in particular never know what they’re going to get from their troops, as each of their ten home matches since returning from the World Cup has produced a different result to the home match prior (W4, D2, L4). With this being their penultimate game of the season at Power Horse Stadium, their performances in these concluding two matches could single-handedly decide the Rojiblancos’ future, since a whopping 29 of their 36 points this season have been won on their own turf.
Opponents Mallorca are in much better stead after a 1-0 win over Cádiz last round saw them finish the week in 12th place with an outside chance of a top-half finish should they end the season well. Javier Aguirre’s men could still really ruffle some feathers if they manage to swoop into the final European place on offer; they currently trail it by just four points prior to the weekend.
Those hopes most likely rest on the Pirates collecting their full bounty in this game, but they’ve often been made to walk the plank on their travels after losing eight of their last ten away league games (W1, D1). Their recent record against Almería will serve as inspiration as they often hit the ground running against them, having won each of the last four H2Hs without conceding.
📋 Players to watch: Almería’s Luis Suárez has scored his side’s opener in 12 of his 14 goalscoring outings in LL. He’ll go up against Mallorca defender Pablo Maffeo, who returned from suspension to net the winner against Cádiz last time out, just as he did when these sides last met earlier in the season.
⚡ Hot streak: Both teams have found the net in all of Almería’s last ten matches.
