Looking to secure back-to-back La Liga victories on Saturday night, Valencia will travel to the Power Horse Stadium when they meet Almeria.

Starting with the hosts, while Almeria might have limped their way over the finish line last season as they clung to their La Liga status, it appears that La Union are bracing themselves for another uphill struggle this time around. Marking their return from September’s international break last weekend with a 2-1 loss away at Villarreal, Vicente Moreno’s side have had little to cheer about since opening up the 2023/24 campaign. Heading into the fortnight interval with an action-packed 3-2 loss at the hands of Celta Vigo, the Andalusia-based outfit have collected just a single point from any of their first five La Liga appearances. Opening proceedings on August 11th with a routine 2-0 defeat against Rayo Vallecano, Almeria will also be worried by their continued struggles on home soil. In fact, including a 3-1 defeat when they welcomed Spanish giants Real Madrid to town last month, Moreno’s side have lost each of their opening three contests at the Power Horse Stadium by an aggregate score of 8-3.

As for the visitors, marking their return from September’s international break with a stunning performance at the Mestalla last weekend, Valencia will be desperate to lay down another marker here. Cruising their way to a remarkable 3-0 romp at home against former champions Atletico Madrid, the Bats will now be hoping to find some La Liga stability. Drawing a line under their consecutive defeats prior to the fortnight interval, Ruben Baraja’s side now have their sights set on mounting a genuine top-half charge this time around. Opening proceedings with a 2-1 win away at Sevilla on August 11th, Los Ches will be hoping to produce a repeat performance this weekend. However, despite smelling a potential chance on Saturday night, Valencia should be worried by their most recent showdown against the leading relegation scrappers. Hit with a lively 2-1 defeat when they travelled to the Power Horse Stadium for a La Liga battle back on April 9th, we could be treated to another enjoyable affair this weekend.
