As La Liga’s matchday 31 approaches, an intriguing clash is set for April 14, 2024, where Real Sociedad will host Almeria at the Reale Arena.

This game is pivotal for both teams but for very different reasons, as Sociedad aims to solidify their Europa League qualification spot while Almeria fights desperately against relegation.

Current Form

Real Sociedad's Current Form

Real Sociedad is riding a wave of momentum with three consecutive victories in La Liga, which has bolstered their position to sixth in the standings.

Their recent form (WLLWWW) reflects resilience, bouncing back strongly from a Champions League elimination by Paris Saint-Germain last month.

Almeria's Current Form

Almeria’s situation is dire, rooted at the bottom of the table, and their form reflects their season’s struggles (DDLDWL).

Despite a win against Las Palmas, their only victory this season, Almeria couldn’t maintain momentum, recently losing 3-0 to Osasuna.

Team News

Real Sociedad's Team News

Imanol Alguacil's squad is somewhat depleted with injuries to key players such as Takefusa Kubo and Martin Merquelanz.

Despite these setbacks, the return of Robin Le Normand from suspension will strengthen Sociedad’s defence, crucial for continuing their winning form.

Almeria's Team News

Almeria’s coach, Pepe Mel, faces selection headaches with several key players out injured, including Ibrahima Kone and Luis Suarez.

Moreover, midfielder Gonzalo Melero is suspended, further limiting their options for this crucial match.
