UD Almeria battles for their lives

UD Almeria is looking to escape early elimination with a win against Elche, who is likely to be eliminated this season. In the league table, Almeria are fortunate to be four places above Elche, who is likely to get eliminated. Almeria is at the 16th of the league table with 33 points, but they need more wins. A win in this match could ensure them that they will not be eliminated early in this season. Elche on the other hand needs to win all their remaining matches for them to enter the next round. However, this chance is too little, so it seems a little impossible for them to enter the next round. This meeting will be on May 3, 2023, at 1:30 AM (GMT+8), with Almeria playing as hosts.

These two teams have shared 30 meetings across all competitions already, and it was the hosts who has more wins. The hosts managed to win 11 meetings, while the visitors only have eight wins. However, their last meeting ended in a 1-1 draw for them, their 11th draw in their history. The hosts failed to keep a clean sheet in their last nine games in the league, which is not good for them. The visitors on the other hand are fortunate as they have a good momentum coming here. They were able to go undefeated in their last four games in the contest. However, they currently hold the worst defensive record in the league, conceding 62 in the contest.

La Liga: UD Almeria

Almeria is currently at the 16th off the league table with 33 points across their name, but a win here is huge for them. They could climb up at the 14th of the league table with 36 points due to their win. Almeria actually have their struggles this season, which is why they are just two places from the drop zone. They need to earn more wins though if they want to continue fighting for their lives. They only have six games left, so they really need to bounce back from their losses. Almeria are coming into this game from a 4-2 loss against Real Madrid, conceding four goals. This does not look optimistic at all, so they really need to go all-out in this important game.

Diego Fuoli, and El Bilal Toure are both missing in this match, due to their injuries. Fortunately, Srdan Babic will be back from suspension he served against Real Madrid on their last match.


La Liga: Elche

Elche on the other hand is slowly losing their hopes for the next round, considering their place in the league table. They are sitting at the most bottom part of the league table with just 16 points. Although they sill have a chance for the next round, they need to win all their remaining matches. The team at the 19th of the league table is with 15 points lead against them, so it is almost impossible to escape the drop zone. They are still aiming to return to winning ways in this match. This is what they need to do though since they are from a 4-0 defeat against Rayo Vallecano. Coming into this match, they are aiming to build on their latest results, and remain optimistic of their chances.

Omar Mascarell, and Pedro Bigas are still both a major doubt in this game. Jose Angel Carmona, and Helibelton Palacios on the other hand are unavailable here, due to their injuries.
