Current leaders to be put to the test against Sporting de Gijon

UD Almería are playing a tough game at El Molinón-Enrique Castro ‘Quini’ Stadium

01/11/2021

It has been 13 Matchweeks and UD Almeria are current LaLiga SmartBank leaders. They do not have to prove anything to anyone because their results speak for themselves, but this is a long, difficult competition and every game counts. 

The Rojiblancos will be put to the test at El Molinón-Enrique Castro ‘Quini’, a top-class stadium that has always been visited by really supportive fans, against rivals who also aspires to move up to the top flight. Head coach Rubi explained that they have a lot to win but also to lose...or what is the same...wasting a great opportunity to make a difference at the top of the table.

The Asturianos have picked up only one point on the last three Matchdays, while UD Almería have bagged 9 points. Different runs of results, although what has been done before will not count on the pitch this Tuesday. 

UD Almería have been training these days to maintain a balance between offensive and defensive aspects in Gijon, something that will be key against adversaries of undoubted potential that will go all out to react in a championship in which they have been in the lead in 4 Matchweeks, and if things go wrong for them in the next game, they could even leave the play-off zone. 

The Rojiblancos squad have attended one last behind-closed-door practice at the Juegos Mediterraneos Stadium before jetting off into Asturias thus Tuesday morning.
