Almeria vs Getafe Preview

Almeria vs Getafe will take place at the Estadio Mediterraneo in La Liga on April 27 as the team at rock-bottom gears up to host the 10th-placed side.

The hosts will enter this contest on the back of a poor run of form. They have won just one game out of their last eight across competitions. The other results were four draws and three defeats as they are a certainty for relegation at this point. Almeria drew 2-2 against Real Sociedad away from home, before falling 2-1 against Villarreal at home in their last game. While there is no hope of survival, they were looking to end their season on a good note.

The visitors, on the other hand, entered this game on the back of a similar woeful form. They too recorded just one win in their last eight games across competitions, drawing four and losing three games as well. However, better form earlier in the season means they are safe from the consequences of this slump. Getafe played out a goalless draw with Rayo Vallecano, before drawing 1-1 against Real Sociedad in their last game. They were looking to end their season on a high as well.

With that said, let’s take a look at the team news coming out of both camps.

Almeria vs Getafe Team News

Manager Pepe Mel will be without three players for his team’s next game against Getafe. Largie Ramazani appeared as a substitute in their 2-1 defeat last time and was sent off for two bookable offenses. He will be suspended for the next game.

Luis Javier Suarez and Aleksandar Radovanovic will also miss out due to injuries. The pair was not available for Almeria’s last game either.


Manager Jose Bordalas will be without a few key players ahead of his team’s trip to Almeria. Long-term absentees Mauro Arambarri (ACL) and Borja Mayoral (meniscus) will definitely miss this game. Both players have serious injuries and could miss the remainder of the current season for their team.

Domingos Duarte and Jorge Benito de Valle Martin will also be ruled out due to injury. Meanwhile, Juan Iglesias and Juanmi Latasa have both picked up four yellow cards and will receive a one-match suspension should they be booked again.

Mel will stick with the same lineup he fielded in the last game.

Predicted XI: Luis Maximiano (GK); Marc Pubill, Cesar Montes, Chumi, Bruno Langa; Lucas Robertone (C), Dion Lopy; Leo Baptistao, Jonathan Vieira, Adrian Embarba; Anthony Lozano.

Almeria vs Getafe Prediction
