Real Madrid host Almería in what will be the last manageable game for Los Blancos in 10 days. This weekend, they will visit Sevilla before travelling to Italy to play against Juventus, and after that they will host Valencia to host Juventus once again the other week.
There are plenty of things at stake, as Real Madrid need to keep winning to put some pressure on FC Barcelona. While most fans will certainly be focused on the reports indicating that Real Madrid is going to receive a ban from FIFA, the players should be concentrated on winning every remaining game in order to have a shot at the Liga BBVA and Champions League title.
Almería are fighting to avoid relegation and they will play with a lot of heart. Meanwhile, Carlo Ancelotti is expected to rotate his squad, so players like Jesé, Arbeloa and Keylor Navas will have a chance to prove how useful they are in case Ancelotti needs them to finish the season.
One way or another, expect Real Madrid to come out of this one victorious, focusing on a Sevilla match (Saturday) that will be tremendously important.
