Almeria vs Real Valladolid Prediction

Almeria Form

Showing inconsistent form, Almeria lost two of their past three matches, going down 3-1 against Osasuna, before beating Mallorca 3-0. The joy was short-lived, as Real Sociedad proved too strong in a 1-0 defeat. Almeria won half of their previous six matches on home soil in the La Liga, while also drawing one. They suffered two defeats, while they scored nine and conceded seven goals.

They went into the season as candidates for the drop, and unfortunately for Almeria, they have lived up to expectations. As the season draws to a close, they are still in with a chance of escaping relegation, though.

Real Valladolid Form

Real Valladolid suffered a couple of disappointments in their last three matches as they were run over by Sevilla in a 0-3 defeat. Cadiz also proved too hard to handle as they won 2-0, before Real Valladolid were able to strike back in a 3-1 win against Barcelona. Real Valladolid claimed just one win from the last six away games in the La Liga. They also drew one and were defeated four times, as they were outscored by 14 goals to five.

Many people had Real Valladolid down as candidates for the drop before the season, but rescue is still within reach, as the season nears its end.

Both Almeria and Real Valladolid have been firing on all cylinders, while also conceding frequently. We should be in for a very entertaining match with goals aplenty.
