Almería vs. Las Palmas 10/28/23 – As we approach another exciting weekend of La Liga soccer, Almería will be hosting Las Palmas at the Power Horse Stadium. Both teams are striving to improve their standing, with Almería in desperate need of a win after their recent poor form. Las Palmas, on the other hand, is somewhat on the ascendency with a slightly better record. If you’re looking for La Liga free tips today, you’ve landed at the right place.
Almería’s offense is primarily led by their top scorers Sergio Arribas and Luis Suárez, who have both netted 4 goals this season. Arribas, despite being a midfielder, has showcased his striking abilities with 19 shots and 6 on target. Suárez, the forward, has had 32 shots with 12 on target. Their combined prowess will test Las Palmas’s defense, which has allowed fewer goals in the past games, a fact evident from their goalkeeper’s statistics.
Contrarily, Las Palmas’s offense, though not highly prolific, brings a balanced attack. Jonathan Viera and Marc Cardona have each scored 2 goals. Viera, with 14 shots and 4 on target, has been a consistent presence in the midfield, while Cardona has been efficient with 3 shots and all 3 on target. Almería’s defense, which has been leaky considering their goalkeeper’s stats, might find it challenging to handle Las Palmas’s strikers.

Luís Maximiano GK vs. Álvaro Valles GK
