Almeria vs Elche by Tullamore
Almeria hasn't manage to win yet, despite the fact that it performed impressively well at offense. It scored twice at both games it played, but just took a point from the last road game against Getafe. The win over Elche is more than important, as Rodriguez said and despite the lack of experience and the young roster, he sounded confident ahead of this clash. Almeria can play nice football if it find space on the field, but even its manager knows that he cannot trust his defensive line.
On the other hand, there is Elche, which had to drive almost 2.5 hours to Andalusia. The team had an awful opening game at Vallecas, where it lost 3-0 by Rayo. After that, they got some improvement and got a draw against exlposive Real Socieadad (1-1). Elche was the best team last season at Segunda, but they will need some time to adjust at the top league. Same thing for Almeria, which however seems to stand stadily regarding its performances.
One way or another, i expect the hosts to take the 3 points today. It is a 6-point game, if you know what i mean and both teams need the victory, so they will try for their best. Almeria will push hard to score more than 2 goals, because the defensive weaknesses are always there to ruin their morale. Almeria won't make any changes tonight by the way, so i think Rodriguez has the recipe. The only thing is to run it well.
