Almeria vs Atletico Madrid: Preview

Almeria form analysis

Rojiblancos have found life difficult during February in La Liga, failing to win any of their last five matches. They did start the month in dramatic fashion, somehow managing to take a 2-0 first half lead away at the mighty Real Madrid before eventually succumbing to a late 3-2 defeat. Things went even more poorly in their very next match as they were dismantled 3-0 at home by Alaves, a result that showed their defensive frailties.

A 2-1 away loss to Valencia followed as they were unable to contain the home side’s attacking talents. Almeria did manage to stop the rot by grinding out a 0-0 home draw with Athletic Bilbao in their next La Liga match, narrowly missing out on all three points when Lazar Ramazani was denied. However, their solid defensive display was again proven to be an anomaly as their most recent outing saw them throw away a lead to draw 1-1 away at struggling Granada. Based on the last month, Almeria have entertained with goals at both ends but must tighten up defensively if they are to escape relegation.

Atletico Madrid form analysis

Atletico Madrid had a mixed run of form in the recent matches. They secured a convincing 2-0 victory against Valencia, with goals from Samuel Lino and M. Depay. In the subsequent game against Rayo Vallecano, Reinildo opened the scoring, but Rayo Vallecano managed to equalize. However, Atletico Madrid clinched the win with a late goal from M. Depay. Their performance against Real Madrid resulted in a 1-1 draw, with Brahim Díaz putting Real Madrid in the lead and Marcos Llorente scoring the equalizer in the 90th minute. However, they suffered a setback against Sevilla, losing 1-0 to a goal from Isaac Romero.

However, Atletico Madrid bounced back with a resounding 5-0 victory over Las Palmas, with a brace from Marcos Llorente and goals from Á. Correa, and M. Depay. Overall, Atletico Madrid displayed resilience in their matches, securing important victories and salvaging a draw against a formidable opponent. However, they also faced a defeat, highlighting the need for consistency in their performances. The team showcased their offensive prowess in the match against Las Palmas, demonstrating their ability to capitalize on scoring opportunities. Moving forward, Atletico Madrid will aim to build on their strengths and work on minimizing defensive vulnerabilities to maintain a competitive edge in upcoming fixtures.
