TIP OF THE DAY: Almeria – Alaves: Can Almeria finally achieve their first victory in La Liga?

On Friday, there is a very interesting betting offer, as we are expecting several very interesting matches across Europe, and this time we have prepared for you the premier duel of the 22nd round of the Spanish La Liga, where Almeria and Alaves will measure their strengths. The start of the match between these two teams is scheduled for 9 pm.

Almeria: Is it time for the first victory of the “bottom team”?

Almeria finished last season in seventeenth place on the table, with just one point more than eighteenth-placed Valladolid, meaning this team managed to survive in the top flight with considerable difficulty. Before the start of the season, the team lost perhaps its best player from the previous season, as Ture was sold to Atalanta, where this excellent footballer interestingly got injured at the start of the season, causing him to be sidelined until a few days ago.

The primary goal for Almeria will, of course, be to stay in the top tier of Spanish football, and right from the start, we can state that it will be a very difficult, perhaps even impossible task, as this team is currently at the bottom of the table with only six points, which is currently ten points less than the teams in the safe zone.

It’s disheartening to note that Gaizka Garitano’s men have not achieved a single victory in the course of the championship so far, and in addition, the “bottom team” has been defeated fifteen times with only six points earned. To be fair, it must be said that Almeria has been playing much better lately, and surely the performances against the two teams that have shown the most in this year’s edition of Spanish football have greatly encouraged all fans of this club.

Firstly, the team at the bottom of the table drew at their stadium against top-placed Girona, and then Almeria was defeated 3:2 in an away game against Real Madrid, with the most successful European club scoring the winning goal in the ninth minute of injury time.

Regarding home performances, Gaizka Garitano’s squad has played ten matches at their stadium so far, drawing five times with five draws, so when all is said and done, it really seems like it’s time for this team’s first victory of the season, and also their first in front of their fans, especially since the opponent is Alaves, who has not been outstanding in away games over the past few years.

Alaves: The Basques are playing beyond all expectations!

As for Alaves, the team from the Basque Country finished last season in fourth place in the Spanish Segunda Division, but managed to achieve promotion to the top tier of Spanish football through the playoffs. In the semifinals, Alaves was better than Eibar in a two-legged tie, eliminating them with a total score of 3:1, while in the grand final of the playoffs, they were superior to Levante, winning with a total score of 0:1. The hero of this tie was Asier Villalibre, who scored a penalty in extra time to bring victory to the Basque team, leading to grand celebrations among the most passionate fans of this charming team.

Certainly, after returning to La Liga, the primary goal will once again be to stay among the best. If we look at things this way, we can freely state that the blue-and-whites are playing above all expectations. At this moment, the former UEFA Cup finalist (today’s Europa League) is in twelfth place in the table, with a comfortable eight points more than the teams in the relegation zone.

The Basque club has been playing particularly well lately, achieving two victories in their last two matches and significantly distancing themselves from the teams fighting for survival. First, Luis Garcia Plaza’s men celebrated a very tough away win against Sevilla, a duel at Sanchez Pizjuan that ended with a 2:3 victory for the visitors, once again confirming that the Andalusians are having huge problems this season. After that, in the last round, Alaves defeated Cadiz at their stadium with a goal from Rioja from the penalty spot at the start of the second half.

Regarding away games, Alaves has played eleven matches away from home so far and hasn’t been particularly successful, achieving only one victory (the aforementioned one against Sevilla), suffering six defeats, and drawing four times. It seems that Alaves faces an extremely difficult task, regardless of the fact that Almeria still hasn’t won a single game in the championship.
