Watch Real Madrid vs Almeria Live

Looking to recover from only their second defeat this season, Real Madrid is set to resume their La Liga campaign against the bottom-ranked Almeria on Sunday. The recent setback occurred in a 4-2 loss to Atletico Madrid during a Copa del Rey match on Thursday. In contrast, Almeria comes into the game after a 0-0 draw with La Liga leaders Girona last weekend.

Real Madrid’s journey in the Copa del Rey took a downturn in the last-16 clash with Atletico, resulting in a 4-2 defeat and an exit from the competition they had won the previous season. Despite recent successes in Saudi Arabia, where they triumphed over Atletico in the semi-finals and beat Barcelona 4-1 in the final, they were unable to replicate that form in the latest Madrid derby, succumbing in extra time with goals from Antoine Griezmann and Rodrigo Riquelme.

Sunday’s upcoming match marks Real Madrid’s return to league action since their 1-0 victory over Mallorca on January 3. Girona’s recent performance allowed them to overtake Real Madrid at the top of the table, but a goalless draw against Almeria narrowed the gap to just one point between the two teams.
