Sevilla’s fight to stay in La Liga looked to be put to rest a few weeks ago after a return to form, but they have been dragged back into the tight battle at the bottom of the standings. This will be a huge game this weekend against the side currently sitting 18th.
La Liga Preview
It still looks set to be a tricky end to the season for Sevilla, as they remain locked in a battle to stay in the Spanish top flight. They currently sit 17th in the overall standings, and they come into this fixture having failed to win in their previous three matches. They have also lost each of their last two in La Liga. That leaves them level on points with Almeria coming into this showdown, and they could end the weekend back in the bottom three.
Sevilla has one of the worst defensive records in the Spanish league this term, as they have already allowed 39 goals in 27 games. They were handed a humbling defeat in their previous fixture, as they were smashed for six by Atletico Madrid away from home. It was a poor second-half display, with Sevilla conceding four in the second period.
Almeria sits a place below Sevilla directly in the current standings, but they could move above their illustrious rivals this weekend with a vital win on the road. They have a slightly better-attacking record than Sevilla so far this term, but they have also allowed three more goals. However, last weekend they suffered a 13th defeat of the season, meaning that they weren’t able to pick up a second straight win.
It was a disappointing result for Almeria, as they likely did enough defensively to merit picking up a point. However, two goals in the final 15 minutes won the maximum points for Villarreal.
Sevilla vs Almeria Head to Head
Almeria ended a five-game winning run for Sevilla earlier this season, as they landed a 2-1 success in the reverse fixture. Their last win away from home against Sevilla was achieved in 2010, and they have lost on each of their previous two visits.
Sevilla vs Almeria Prediction
This is likely to be an incredibly cagey affair between two sides that look set to battle it out to avoid relegation this term. However, given the nature of their performance last weekend, we will be going against Sevilla on Sunday.
