Real Madrid’s Almeria Expedition: A Test of Mettle in Pursuit of Glory

Key Stats
– Real Madrid aim for their eighth consecutive victory over Almeria, having previously outscored them 30-7.
– Jude Bellingham, Real Madrid’s new star, marked his debut with a goal against Athletic Bilbao.
– Almeria’s Sergio Akieme boasts the highest BettingTips4You Expert Rating in the team, indicating his potential impact on the game.

As the 2023-24 La Liga season gathers momentum, Real Madrid set their sights on Almeria, aiming to clinch consecutive victories. While Carlo Ancelotti’s charges aspire to reclaim their Spanish crown, Almeria’s primary objective is to steer clear of the dreaded relegation zone.

A Tale of Two Starts

The opening fixtures unveiled contrasting tales for these teams. While the Madrid giants showcased their prowess with a commanding 2-0 triumph over Athletic Bilbao, Almeria faltered on home turf, succumbing to a 2-0 defeat to Rayo Vallecano. The weight of last season, where Almeria narrowly escaped relegation, seems to be bearing down on them.

Summer Signings – Almeria Bolsters Their Ranks

Vicente Moreno, Almeria’s manager, sought reinforcements over the summer. Notable acquisitions include Luis Suarez from Marseille and the promising trio of Ibrahima Kone, Dion Lopy, and Sergio Arribas.

Despite the departure of key player El Bilal Toure to Napoli, the team appears well-equipped for La Liga’s rigours. Yet, against heavyweights like Real Madrid, with whom they’ve lost their previous seven encounters, Almeria’s real mettle will be tested.

Real Madrid – Eyeing the Top Spot

Ancelotti’s men are no strangers to the pressures of expectation. Having finished a mere 10 points adrift of champions Barcelona last season, the hunger for the La Liga title is palpable. This ambition is reflected in their summer transfer activities, with the likes of Jude Bellingham and Fran Garcia added to their ranks. Yet, not everything has been smooth sailing. The departure of talisman Karim Benzema and the unfulfilled promise of acquiring Kylian Mbappe leave questions unanswered.

Injury Woes and Tactical Decisions

Injuries can be the bane of any footballing campaign. Almeria will be without Leo Baptistao and Martin Svidersky due to unfortunate ailments. On the flip side, Real Madrid grapples with significant losses, especially the long-term absence of Eder Militao and Thibaut Courtois. Ancelotti’s decision-making will be tested, particularly regarding his preferred 4-3-1-2 formation which was effective against Athletic Bilbao.


1. Match Outcome Prediction: Real Madrid to Win

It’s clear from the data presented that Real Madrid are favourites heading into this tie. Historically, they’ve dominated their meetings with Almeria, winning their last seven encounters with an aggregate scoreline of 30-7. These stats aren’t just historical footnotes – they provide a clear pattern of dominance. When two teams have such a one-sided record, it often instills a psychological edge in the dominant side and potentially dents the confidence of the other.

Real Madrid’s start to the season bolsters their favourite tag, coming off the back of a solid 2-0 victory against Athletic Bilbao. In contrast, Almeria suffered a defeat to Rayo Vallecano with the same scoreline. Considering Almeria’s struggle in the league last season, only narrowly avoiding relegation, their chances against a title contender like Real Madrid seem slim.

2. Correct Score Prediction: 2-0 to Real Madrid

Given both team’s opening results and the robust defence Real Madrid displayed in their opener – not conceding a single goal – a 2-0 victory for Los Blancos seems plausible. Real Madrid, even with their injuries, have depth and talent that Almeria will find hard to breach. Moreover, the hosts had no goals to their name in their first match, further supporting the idea that they might struggle to score against a team of Real Madrid’s calibre.

3. Goalscorer Prediction: Jude Bellingham to Score

The young Englishman, Jude Bellingham, made a fantastic debut for Real Madrid, finding the back of the net and proving crucial in their win over Athletic Bilbao. His role as a dynamic midfielder allows him to join the attack and get into goal-scoring positions. Given his form, it wouldn’t be surprising to see him replicate his scoring feat against Almeria.

Furthermore, the absence of a traditional number nine like Benzema means midfielders and wingers might be more involved in the attacking play, providing Bellingham with more opportunities to score.
