Overview

In an upcoming La Liga clash, bottom-of-the-table Almeria will host the high-flying Athletic Bilbao at the Power Horse Stadium ÔÇô Estadio de los Juegos Mediterr├íneos. Almeria, struggling to find form this season, will be looking to secure their first win against a Bilbao side that has been performing strongly and currently sits in 5th place in the league standings. With both teams having played 23 games this season, the match promises to be a crucial encounter for Almeria's survival hopes and Bilbao's European aspirations.

Almeria

Almeria's season has been one to forget so far. Anchored at the 20th position with just 6 points, they have yet to register a win, drawing 6 and losing a staggering 17 matches. Their goal difference stands at a concerning -29, highlighting both offensive and defensive struggles. The recent form guide reads "LLLDL," showing a team in dire need of a turnaround. Their last fixture ended in a narrow 2-1 defeat away at Valencia, where they showed signs of fight but ultimately fell short. Playing at home this time, Almeria will be desperate to leverage their home advantage and seek inspiration from their supporters to spark a change in fortunes.

Athletic Bilbao

In stark contrast, Athletic Bilbao has enjoyed a strong campaign and is well-positioned in the league table with 45 points. Their record boasts 13 wins, 6 draws, and only 4 losses, with a positive goal difference of +21. The team's recent form "WDLWW" indicates consistency and the ability to bounce back from setbacks. Coming off an emphatic 4-0 victory over Mallorca in their last outing, confidence will be high within the squad. Bilbao's historical dominance over Almeria is also notable, having won all of their last five encounters against them. Despite playing away from their fortress San Mam├ęs Barria, Bilbao will feel optimistic about extending their winning streak against their struggling hosts.

Prediction

The prediction for this match leans heavily towards an Athletic Club victory. The data underscores Bilbao's superior form and historical edge over Almeria, who have not managed to secure a single win against them in their last five meetings. Additionally, with Almeria's lack of victories this season and their position at the foot of the table, it seems like an uphill battle for them to overcome a Bilbao side that is eyeing European spots. While football can be unpredictable and home advantage may play some part for Almeria, the odds are stacked in favor of Athletic Club continuing their pursuit of success this season.
