Almeria’s quest for their first La Liga win in the 2023-24 season will continue as they face Alaves. Almeria, currently at the bottom of the table, heads into this match following a 3-2 defeat at the hands of Real Madrid. Almeria, unhappy with certain VAR decisions, expressed their frustration after the match, with midfielder Gonzalo Melero claiming they were “robbed,” and head coach Gaizka Garitano being sent off during the emotional second half.
Despite their struggles, Almeria managed to hold league leaders Girona to a goalless draw in their last home game, providing some encouragement for the upcoming clash with Alaves. Currently, Almeria sits at the bottom of the table with six points from zero wins, six draws, and 15 defeats. They are ten points behind 17th-placed Sevilla. Despite having the worst home record in La Liga this season, with only five points from 10 matches, Almeria’s better performances have come in front of their own fans.
Alaves, promoted through the Segunda Division playoffs last season, aims to avoid relegation, and their current 12th position with 23 points from 21 matches is considered a success. Unbeaten since December 21, they secured wins against Sevilla and Cadiz after drawing with Real Sociedad. Alaves has won five of their 10 home league matches during the current campaign. In the reverse fixture earlier this season, Alaves emerged victorious against Almeria with a 79th-minute goal from Aleksandar Sedlar.
