Almeria’s Struggles Continue in La Liga: A Season to Forget So Far

Almeria is enduring a challenging season in La Liga, still without a single win after 18 matchdays. Despite improved performances under new head coach Gaizka Garitano, the Andalusian team remains anchored to the bottom of the table with just five points. Their start to the season is statistically the worst by a La Liga side in the 21st century, and they are facing a steep climb to avoid relegation. Let’s take a closer look at their struggles and the uphill battle ahead.

Almeria’s Struggle Continues as they Remain Winless in La Liga After 18 Matches.

Despite a significant improvement in performance under new head coach Gaizka Garitano, Almeria are still struggling to secure their first win of the season in La Liga. After 18 matchdays, they are rooted to the bottom of the table with just five points coming from five draws. This puts them three points behind Granada in 19th place and nine points adrift of Cadiz, who sit just outside of the relegation zone.

According to Sport, Almeria’s start to the season is the worst by a La Liga side in the 21st century, breaking the record previously held by Elche from the 2022-23 season. Only Sporting Gijon in the 1997-98 season have had a worse start to a La Liga season, with just three points.

The Andalusian team is in desperate need of a win to avoid the threat of relegation, but their chances are looking increasingly slim as the season progresses. They will need to turn their performances around quickly if they are to have a shot at survival in the top flight.
