When Real Sociedad hosts Almeria at La Liga on Tuesday night, they will be hoping to make significant progress towards clinching qualifying for the Champions League next season. In the race to stay in Spain’s top division, the home team, who defeated champions Barca at Camp Nou on Saturday, is fourth in the standings, five points higher than fifth-place Villarreal. Almeria is currently 13th, four points above the relegation zone.
At Camp Nou, Mikel Merino and Alexander Sorloth scored, with Robert Lewandowski’s late goal serving just as a consolation for Xavi’s team, which won the title the previous weekend. Real Sociedad has recently found its form, winning four of their last six league games while going undefeated. With only three games remaining in the season, they are currently in fourth place, five points ahead of fifth-place Villarreal. Also Read:Football transfer news
The Yellow Submarine’s next game is Wednesday night against Cadiz, thus a victory for the Basque team would put them eight points ahead of Villarreal, who can only get nine additional scores. Almeria, meanwhile, comes into this game off of a 3-0 victory over Mallorca on Saturday that propelled them up to 13th place in the standings. Lazaro scored a fantastic hat-trick for Rubi’s team in the match at Power Horse Stadium. However, they are still in danger of being relegated since they are only four points above Real Valladolid in 18th position.
Almeria Team News
Although Kaiky, Martin Svidersky, Chumi, and El Bilal Toure continue to be out for Almeria due to injuries, the guests have not mentioned any new fitness issues.
Following Lazaro’s outstanding hat trick against Mallorca, Luis Suarez, and Adri Embarba will join him in the final third of the pitch. Cesar de la Hoz may move into a midfield position, but Alejandro Pozo and Alex Centelles are expected to remain in the full-back positions, so no changes are expected there.
Real Sociedad Team News
On Saturday, Real Sociedad was without David Silva, Brais Mendez, Umar Sadiq, and Martin Merquelanz due to injury; they will also be out for this game as well. Takefusa Kubo might start in the last third of the field if head coach Alguacil chooses to make a move, and that would not be a surprise. Asier Illarramendi should keep his spot in central midfield alongside Merino and Martin Zubimendi despite Mikel Oyarzabal’s anticipated return to the starting lineup.
Real Sociedad’s possible starting lineup:
Remiro; Elustondo, Zubeldia, Le Normand, Rico; Illarramendi, Merino, Zubimendi; Oyarzabal, Sorloth, Kubo
Almeria’s possible starting lineup:
Martinez; Pozo, Ely, Babic, Centelles; Robertone, Costa, De la Hoz; Lazaro, Suarez, Embarba
