Simeone's men will host Almería this Sunday 10 December at 2pm. After the last game against FC Barcelona, our men are looking to extend the longest consecutive home winning streak in the history of the club, with a total of 18 consecutive victories so far in all competitions.
Our team will try to get three new points to consolidate our position at the top part of the league standings. We are currently in fourth place with 31 points, three behind FC Barcelona (with a game in hand) and three ahead of Athletic Club (who have also played a game more).
We face the team coached by Gaizka Garitano, looking for their first win of the season in LaLiga, following their 0-0 draw over Betis on matchday 15. The head-to-head record against Almería is 8 wins, 6 draws and 2 defeats in the 16 meetings between the two sides to date.
Lastly, the closest precedent against Almería took place during the 22/23 season. On that occasion our team won 2-1 on matchday 29, with a double scored by Griezmann.
