Almeria are already drawing up plans for next season’s promotion bid after their relegation was confirmed following last month’s 3-1 defeat to Getafe.

Despite being down and out, Pepe Mel’s side put up a battling display in Sunday’s encounter with Real Betis at the Benito Villamarin, where Leo Baptistao and Luka Romero got on the scoresheet in a narrow 3-2 defeat.

However, Almeria have now shipped 70 league goals this season, leaving them with the worst defensive record in La Liga and highlighting one of the main factors behind their demise.

As well as struggling defensively, Almeria have also failed to deliver at the Power Horse Stadium, with their 17 home league matches producing eight draws and nine defeats.

Having failed to record a home league win, Almeria will have their work cut out on Thursday, but they can take confidence from the fact that they beat Barcelona 1-0 in last season’s home encounter.

Meanwhile, Barcelona may have lost their La Liga title to rivals Real Madrid, but they will still be keen to finish in second position and secure a spot in next season’s Spanish Super Cup.

The Blaugrana to advantage of Girona’s draw with Alaves to climb back int second position with a 2-0 victory in Monday’s home encounter with Real Sociedad.

Lamine Yamal scored his fifth league goal of the season to get Barca up and running, before Raphinha dispatched a stoppage-time penalty to wrap up a fifth successive home league victory.

Barcelona are one point clear of Girona with three games left to play, and they now have the chance to move four points ahead after their Catalan neighbours lost 1-0 in Tuesday’s encounter with Villarreal, leaving Xavi’s side well set to secure a top-two finish for the 15th time in 16 seasons.
