Expert analysis Almería
For Almería, January ended with a 3-1 home win over the second-bottom RCD Espanyol. Thus, the Rubi’s side remained unbeaten for the fifth time in six league matches. During that period, the team from the port city in Andalusia achieved two wins and three draws.
However, four defeats in five LaLiga appearances followed. Here, a 1-0 home win against the leaders, FC Barcelona, constituted the exception. Previously, Almería lost at the eighth-placed Rayo Vallecano (0-2), at home against the fifth-ranked Betis Sevilla (2-3) and at the ninth-placed Girona (2-6).
The sensation against the Blaugrana proved to be a flash in the pan. Because: March began with a 0-2 against the sixth-placed Villarreal and a 1-2 at 13th-ranked Sevilla FC. Then, Almería took five points from three fixtures against opponents who rank in the second half of the Primera División table.
Here, the Indálicos first achieved a 1-1 against the fifth-last-placed Cádiz and a 2-2 at the twelfth-ranked Celta de Vigo. But on Sunday, Rubi’s side came back down to earth with a 1-2 away defeat to the third-placed Atlético Madrid.
Expert analysis Athletic Bilbao
The previous day, Athletic Bilbao celebrated a 2-0 home win over the fourth-ranked Real Sociedad in a Basque regional derby. It marked the third victory in four unbeaten La Liga appearances for Ernesto Valverde’s side. The loss of points, a 0-0 home draw against the 15th-placed Getafe, was sandwiched between away victories against the 14th-ranked Real Valladolid (3-1) and RCD Espanyol (2-1).
Thus, the Leones seem to put a results crisis with one point out of four LaLiga matches behind them. At the time, Athletic Bilbao drew 0-0 with Rayo Vallecano at early March. Previously, Valverde’s squad lost at Atlético Madrid (0-1) and at home to Girona (2-3). This was followed by a 0-1 home defeat to FC Barcelona on 12 March.
