An incredibly tough campaign has seen Almeria pick up just 14 points from their 31 league matches, which has left them in 20th position, 14 points adrift of safety of 17th place.

Pepe Mel has steadied the ship since his arrival as head coach last month, picking up four points from an available nine, with the team beating Las Palmas, losing to Osasuna and drawing with Real Sociedad under the guidance of the 61-year-old.

Almeria came close to losing against Real Sociedad last time out, but Adri Embarba scored an 88th-minute penalty to level the scores at 2-2, with the bottom side securing an impressive point.

La Union have the worst home record in the divisin this season, picking up just eight points from 15 matches, while Villarreal have been solid on their travels, securing 20 points from their 15 games on the road.

Villarreal finished fifth in La Liga last season, but they are currently 18 points behind fifth-placed Athletic Bilbao, with Marcelino’s side having a largely disappointing campaign.

The Yellow Submarine still have an outside chance of securing a European spot for next season, but they are eight points off seventh-placed Valencia, so it is unlikely unless there is a huge turnaround.

Villarreal recorded four straight victories in La Liga between February 23 and March 17, which saw them climb the table, but they were beaten 2-1 at home by Atletico Madrid at the start of the month before drawing 1-1 with Athletic at San Mames last time out.

Marcelino’s side are actually unbeaten in their last away league matches, securing three wins in the process, so they will enter this contest in a confident mood.

Almeria vs. Villarreal Head to head

In the 22 previous meetings between these two teams, Almeria have claimed four victories while Villarreal have won 11, and they have drawn in seven. Villarreal have scored 36 goals and conceded 20 in the process.

Almeria Team News

Almeria will be without the services of three players this weekend through injury, with Marko Milovanovic, Luis Suarez and Aleksandar Radovanovic on the sidelines.

Mel could decide to select the same XI that started against Real Sociedad, with two-goal Embarba featuring on the left, while Leo Baptistao should continue as the centre-forward.
