Spanish La Liga Football: Real Madrid Seeks Glory against AlmeriaPublished December 12, 2014 by Amir G
Real Madrid looks to complete 20 consecutive victories in all competitions in its game against Almeria today (7:45pm UK time).
Spain's La Liga leader Real Madrid arrives at Almeria's Estadio de los Juegos Mediterraneos stadium to face the home team (7:45pm UK time).
Los Blancos are currently on a run of 19 consecutive victories in all competitions, and Carlo Ancelotti's men will look to bring that up to a nice 20. Real's latest game against Ludogorets Razgrad secured the team's smooth ascension to the UEFA Champions League round of 16 after an impressive 4-0 victory at home.
Saturday saw Real further cementing its grip on the top of the table with a 3-0 victory over Celta Vigo; having scored more than two goals in almost every game, the team holds an impressive goal difference of 39 – ten goals away from Barcelona. Real's leads the La Liga with 36 points, just two points away from Barcelona and four from Atletico Madrid – this renders each and every game important.
Almeria is positioned in the 17th spot, just 3 points away from Elche which scrapes the bottom. The team managed to win only 2 games out of 14 played, the rest were 4 draws and 8 losses – they did not manage to win at home during this season yet.
In fact, Almeria couldn't ask for a worse timing than this to meet the Madrid juggernaut, as the team is currently without a manager after boss Francisco Rodriguez was sacked following a 5-2 loss to Eibar. The only thing keeping Almeria from the relegation zone is goal difference and as fantastic as it sounds, there's no greater chance to impress against Real Madrid.
