Real Madrid will look to get back to winning ways when they welcome Almeria to the Santiago Bernabeu early Saturday evening.


The 14-time Champions League winners unexpectedly slipped to a 4-2 defeat at Girona last time out, though they would have felt a little better about themselves 24 hours later after Barcelona went down 2-1 to Rayo Vallecano.

Los Blancos are two points ahead of rivals Atletico Madrid, who sit third, and must recover their league form quickly if they are to ensure they finish as runners-up to Barça – they’ve all but got the title sewed up with an 11-point lead.

Here’s 90min’s preview of the game.

Real Madrid could welcome Thibaut Courtois back in goal after the Belgian missed the 4-2 defeat at Girona through illness, but Luka Modric is missing after going off in that game.

David Alaba and Ferland Mendy are also absent for Carlo Ancelotti, while 2022 Ballon d’Or winner Karim Benzema may not be risked with a huge Champions League semi-final against Manchester City coming up.

Real Madrid predicted lineup (4-3-3): Courtois; Vazquez, Militao, Rudiger, Camavinga; Valverde, Tchouameni, Kroos; Asensio, Rodrygo, Vinicius

Almeria predicted lineup (4-3-3): Martinez; Chumi, Ely, Babic, Centelles; Melero, De la Hoz, Robertone; Baptistao, Suarez, Embarba

Real Madrid’s patchy La Liga form is more of an irritant to Ancelotti because of a need to build up steam ahead of the clash with Manchester City.

The title is heading to Barcelona so the priorities are getting players back in fit, but also finding a rhythm out on the pitch. Benzema may be missing this Saturday but there’s still plenty of firepower to breeze Real past Almeria.

Expect a good showing from Vinicius Junior, who very rarely lets his performance level drop even if others around him do.

Score prediction: Real Madrid 3-1 Almeria
