Will Villarreal address their slide down the table?
El Submarino Amarillo were easily beaten 3-0 by Barcelona at Camp Nou on Thursday night, rarely threatening.
This means Unai Emery’s side have won just one of their last six La Liga games, this being Monday night’s win over Osasuna.
As a result, Villarreal begin the weekend in ninth place, five points below the Champions League spots.
In stark contrast, Almería will be buoyant, thanks to an entertaining 3-2 victory over Girona on Thursday.
Los Rojiblancos raced into a 3-0 lead after 38 minutes, Léo Baptistão, El Bilal Touré and Adri Embarba scoring, before holding on for a 3-2 victory by the end.
This means Rubi’s team have won two of their last three outings, also defeating Rayo Vallecano 3-1 in their previous home game.
On the road this season though, Almería have collected just one point from five matches, so will this trend continue at Estadi Ciutat de València?
