Almería vs Barcelona

Almería, already relegated from La Liga, will host the mighty FC Barcelona on Thursday, May 16th, 2024, at the Power Horse Stadium. While the stakes are high for Barcelona in the La Liga title race, this match presents a unique scenario.

  • Competition: La Liga (Spanish League)
  • Round: 37
  • Date: May 16, 2024

Teams:

  • Home Team: UD Almería (Already Relegated from La Liga)

Prediction:

Despite Almería’s surprising 1-0 win in their last meeting, experts heavily favor Barcelona in this matchup. Barcelona’s title race is on the line, and they’ll be highly motivated for a win. Almería, already relegated, might be less focused and struggle against a stronger opponent. A comfortable win for Barcelona is the most likely outcome, but a low-scoring affair isn’t entirely out of the question.

    • Defenders: Chumi, Rodrigo Ely, Juan Ibiza (Captain), Alejandro Pozo
    • Midfielders: Lucas Robertone, Inigo Eguaras, Arnau Puigmal, Largie Ramazani
    • Forwards: Leo Baptistão, Dyego Sousa
  • Barcelona (4-3-3):
    • Goalkeeper: Marc-André ter Stegen
    • Defenders: Ronald Araújo, Eric Garcia, Andreas Christensen, Jordi Alba
    • Midfielders: Sergio Busquets, Frenkie de Jong, Pedri
    • Forwards: Ferran Torres, Robert Lewandowski, Ansu Fati

Please note: These are predicted lineups, and the actual lineups might differ depending on player fitness and coach decisions.

Odds:

It’s important to check with specific sportsbooks as odds can change, but here’s a general idea:

  • Win for Almería: Very High Odds (Least likely)
  • Draw: Moderate Odds
  • Win for Barcelona: Very Low Odds (Most likely)

Head-to-Head (H2H):

  • Historically, Barcelona dominates the head-to-head record.
  • However, Almería secured a surprising 1-0 victory in their last meeting (La Liga 2023-24, Round 11).
  • This adds intrigue to the upcoming match, but Barcelona’s overall record and current form suggest they’ll be the favorites.
