Barcelona vs Almería: wants to be the only leader

The action continues in La Liga and the fight for leadership remains red hot between the two most powerful teams in Spain. In addition, the fight to enter competition positions does not let up either and one of the most attractive matches of matchday 13 will have Barcelona and Almería who will face each other next Saturday at the C amp Nou.

On the one hand, Xavi Hernández's Blaugrana team wants to ratify their favoritism in sports forecasts to win the League title. And to regain the leadership, they will have to keep the three points at home and hope that Real Madrid stumbles for the first time in the competition.

For its part, the present of Almería is far from the front pages of sports newspapers. However, the objective of maintaining the category is the obsession of Rubi and his team, who for now remain outside the relegation zone, although only three points away, so relaxing is not an option.

Last Barcelona matches

Xavi Hernández cannot get out of the astonishment. The disappointment of having been eliminated in the Champions League group stage for the second consecutive season put the project of the youth squad born at the club in suspensive points.

Both the fans and the directors can not believe that the Culé team has to play the Europa League once again contrary to what was anticipated by sports forecasts . Indeed, Barcelona came back empty-handed in the main objective of the season and now they must do the impossible to redeem themselves by obtaining the Europa League and La Liga.

In the domestic tournament, Barcelona is in second place, just one point behind leader Real Madrid. So far, Xavi Hernández's team has collected 31 points in 12 games as a result of 10 wins, a draw and a defeat. In addition, they scored 29 goals and received 4 goals, showing that they are the team with the highest scorers and the least scored in La Liga.

Barcelona's last games in the tournament were as follows: they fell 3-1 against Real Madrid in a logical result for sports betting , thrashed Villarreal 3-0, thrashed Athletic Bilbao 4-0 and defeated 0-1 as visitor to Valencia on the last day.

On the other hand, in the Champions League the failure was premature, since Barcelona only accumulated 4 points in five games played as a result of a win, a draw and three losses, scoring 8 goals and conceding 15 goals.

Last Almeria matches

Ruby and his team know very well that Almería has a very clear objective and that is to maintain the category. It is clear that, due to background, hierarchy and a modest squad, the Rojiblancos are sports betting candidates to lose the category.

However, so far Almería has achieved good results so far in the competition, sitting in the middle of the standings. It is true that they cannot relax considering that they are only three points ahead of Sevilla, the last team that today would be losing the category.

Indeed, the Rojiblancos are in 13th place as a result of 13 points in 12 games played with 4 wins, one draw and seven losses, scoring 15 goals in favor and conceding 20 goals, reflecting that defensive weaknesses continue to be an aspect to be resolved.

Almería's last clashes in La Liga were as follows: they defeated Rayo Vallecano 3-1, lost 3-1 on their visit to Betis, defeated Girona 3-2, lost 2-1 against Villarreal and recovered with a 3-1 against Celta de Vigo, on the last day.

Background between both

Barcelona and Almería played 12 games in La Liga with ten wins for the Culé team and two draws. That is to say that Almería still does not know the victory in the domestic tournament against Barcelona. Likewise, one thing to keep in mind with regard to the Spanish League predictions is that, in six matches played at the Camp Nou, Barcelona won six at home.

For its part, the last clash between the two at the Camp Nou was a 4-0 local victory for Barcelona when they met on matchday 30 of the 2014-2015 season.
